When the tragedy that occurred in Texas is still alive, where a boy entered the classroom of the Robb Elementary School and in seconds began the shooting in which 19 children and two teachers were killed, a new tragedy occurred in the United States. This time it was in Philadelphia, where a man fired into a crowd causing the death of two people and 13 wounded.
The Philadelphia Police Department reported that this Saturday night, after 11 p.m., it responded to different emergency calls that alerted to the presence of an armed person who was shooting at a crowd.
An officer who arrived at the scene and saw a man shooting at people in the city center tried to intimidate the assailant, although it was not clear if the suspect had been injured.
Later, the authorities confirmed that two people died during the attack. She is about a 25-year-old woman and a 22-year-old man.
No information was available on the condition of the injured. It was only confirmed that no agent was injured in the attack.
Authorities said no arrests had been made, although a weapon was recovered.
The police department said on Twitter that there were multiple injuries and asked people to stay away from the area.
The area where the shooting took place is just a few blocks from the gay community neighborhood, where the streets and outdoor bars were packed with people celebrating the 50th anniversary of Philadelphia Gay Pride, which includes a parade and a festival scheduled for this Sunday.
