Several adults and children were inside a Northeast Philly home when two gun-

men opened fire — shooting at least 17 times and wounding two men.

The male suspect approached two men who were outside a house on the 4600

block of Kendrick Street and pulled out a semi-automatic handgun, according

to police.

The two men, both 32, ran inside the home, but were unable to avoid the shots.

One of the victims was hit once in the torso and once in the leg, according to offi

cials. The second victim suffered gunshot wounds to each leg, according to police.

Both victims were transported to Aria Torresdale Hospital, where they are in sta

ble condition.

Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said there is no known motive at

this time, but that the double shooting may be drug related.

Investigators are working to obtain surveillance footage from cameras in the neigh

borhood and are interviewing witnesses.

Authorities have not yet released a decription of the suspect.

The double shooting was one of several violent incidents that occurred across the

city starting late Monday night. A gunmen shot an engaged couple outside a North-

east Philly drug store just before midnight Tuesday. The woman was struck nine times.

Another man arrived at Albert Einstein Medical Center around 2 a.m. Tuesday with a

gunshot wound to the chest. Police are unsure if this victim was struck during one of

the earlier shootings.

An engaged couple –including a woman shot nine times– are in critical condition and three

others are wounded after a violent night across Philadelphia.

Bullets struck the 43-year-old woman in her abdomen and legs while she was outside a Rite

Aid pharmacy at Castor and Magee avenues in the Oxford Circle section of the city around

11:45 p.m. Monday, according to police.

Her 55-year-old fiance was also hit three times in his stomach, according to reports.

Authorities recovered the gun used in the crime on the 6100 block of Algon Avenue– about

a mile away from where the double shooting occurred. Investigators are searching for a male

suspect, who they describe as 5-foot 5-inches tall and wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt.

Both victims were transported to Aria Torresdale Hospital, where they are in critical condition.

Less than an hour later, a gunman fired at least 17 shots at a Northeast Phillly home, which

had several adults and children inside.

each leg. Both were taken to Aria Torresdale, where they are in stable condition.

Investigators have not released a motive in either incident, which they say are unrelated.

A fifth person also arrived at Albert Einstein Medical Center around 2 a.m. Officials say the

man was shot in the chest. Police are working to confirm whether or not this victim was struck

during one of the earlier shootings.

If you wake up drunk and on the ground in someone’s front yard, then you know it’s time to turn down; otherwise you’ll end up like ex-Destiny’s Child member, Farrah Franklin.

The singer (or whatever her career is now) was arrested Sunday morning, in South Carolina, after partying all day and night Saturday with NFL players Da’Quan Bowers and Ricky Sapp, who called the cops on Franklin once she started acting erratic. Both Sapp and Bowers explained to police that they thought Farrah was using drugs that night due to her extended bathroom breaks and weird behavior. However, once cops arrived on the scene, Franklin was already gone, and later found on the neighbor’s lawn. Franklin told police that she was merely drunk (no drugs involved) and wanted to “sleep in the woods” because she had “nowhere to go.”
Franklin was booked at the Horry County Detention Center early Sunday morning around 5 AM, and released that afternoon on bond.
