USA: 3 Suspects Sought After 2yo Toddler, 5 Teens Among 7 Shot In Shooting Near Philadelphia School. Police Are Asking For Anonymous Tips, Looking For 3 Gunmen And Gray 4-Door Hyundai Elantra.

Murder is already a crime. We don't have a gun problem. We have a lack of self-control problem, a criminal supremacists problem and a Commie Democrats local district attorney's, judges, parole officers soft on crime problem, not doing shit to catch the criminals as in crimes go unsolved, and when they do catch the criminals, they immediately release them back onto the streets to allow them to continue terrorizing the community. These same people siding with the criminals want to take away YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to keep and bear arms in order to defend yourself, your business, your family and home against these criminal supremacists and a tyrannical government. Remember, criminals DO NOT obey laws. Therefore, criminals will have access to guns through gun trafficking venues and you will be left defenseless with no guns because the same government siding with criminals THEY'RE ALLOWING to terrorize you with guns said they wanted to keep you safe from guns. The anti-gun prosecutors are not even prosecuting gun crimes. But god forbid you kill an intruder, robber or rapist in self-defense in your home or on your private property, these same Commie Democrat district attorneys or prosecutors will charge you with murder and lock you up for years in prison.

For the record, the District Attorney for the City of Philadelphia is a Commie Democrat and was impeached by the Pennsylvannia House of Representatives for derelict duty causing rising crime and responsible for harming the community with his Commie criminal justice reform policies favoring the criminals.

A trial in the Pennsylvannia State Senate was set to start on January 18, 2023. But apparently has been stopped by a Commonwealth Court that claims the charges brought against him were insufficient and his impeachment trial has been postponed indefinitely.

But the proof is in the high crime, daily shootouts, endless victims, and no one getting arrested. (emphasis mine)

PHILADELPHIA – Security video shows the moments three gunmen get out of a gray Hyundai Elantra and open fire on a street corner in Strawberry Mansion. Several people can be seen running for their lives as the gunmen relentlessly keep shooting.

"And then, all of a sudden, I hear 'bang, bang, bang,' several rounds in different directions," Janet Hou said.

Hou heard the shooting, which injured seven people in just nine seconds.

"I don't understand why we have to live in this situation where we have to watch our back every single day," she said.

A closer look at the video shows blurred images of a woman pushing a stroller with another child next to her in the upper right corner of the screen.

Police say that the 31-year-old woman was shot twice in her thigh and a 2-year-old was also hit but she had no idea her daughter was wounded until changing her diaper. All are innocent victims in the rampage.

Police also confirm among the five others caught in the crossfire, two were teenage brothers.

All are expected to survive.

"My daughter was scared to go to school today," a mother said.

She heard the gunshots and has a daughter in first grade at Blaine Elementary School - that's about a block away from the chaotic scene.

"She's terrified and upset but she says we can't stop the violence we gotta deal with it because it's our neighborhood," the mother said.

Data shows 217 children were shot in the city last year. Most survived but it's the highest number of kids struck by gunfire in the last several years.

Already 26 children have been shot this year.

"It's wrong, it's wrong, gotta do something," the mother said.

Police are looking for three men who were seen driving a 2011-2016 gray four-door Hyundai Elantra with an unknown Pennsylvania tag.

At this time, no arrests have been made.

STRAWBERRY MANSION - Seven people were shot in Philadelphia's Strawberry Mansion neighborhood, police say, including five teens, a 2-year-old and the mom of two of those victims, as an after school program was just wrapping up.

Officials say the shooting happened at the intersection of 30th and Norris streets Thursday evening, just before 6 p.m., near the school yard of the James Blaine School.

The victims ranged in age from 31 to 2. Their injuries are:

1. 31-year-old female shot two times in her leg. She is stable at Temple University Hospital.

2. 16-year-old boy shot in the arm. He is stable at Temple.

3. 13-year-old boy shot once in his hand. He is stable at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

4. 15-year-old boy shot twice in the chest. He is in critical condition at Temple.

5. 16-year-old boy shot once in his arm and once in his leg. He is stable at Jefferson University Hospital.

6. 2-year-old girl shot once in her leg. She is stable at CHOP.

7. 17-year-old boy suffered a graze wound to his leg. He is stable at Jefferson University Hospital.

The 31-year-old female victim is the mother of two of the victims, including the 2-year-old.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw explained the victims were at the intersection near the school when the shooting took place.

Monique Braxton, Spokesperson and Deputy Chief of Communications for the School District of Philadelphia, elaborated on the shooting saying the district's Emergency Crisis Team will be deployed to the four schools the students attended. She stated the after school program was just letting out when the gunshots rang out and all of the victims fled back through the school yard for cover.

According to authorities, police are seeking three suspects in connection with the shooting and ask anyone with any information about the incident or the suspects to contact police.

The three were seen in a 2011 to 2016 gray, four-door Hyundai Elantra, with an unknown Pennsylvania tag. The suspects are described as:
  • Male, wearing a black face mask and black "New Balance" sweater.
  • Male, wearing a black, hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and black Under Armour sneakers.
  • Male wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt.
Mayor Jim Kenney took to social media, saying:

"Schools and other public spaces must remain safe havens for youth and the community. It’s heartbreaking and infuriating to learn of another shooting occurring on or near school grounds. I’m praying for the victims involved."

Philadelphia Federation of Teachers President Jerry Jordan released a statement, saying in part:

"Once again, the devastation of gun violence continues to traumatize our communities. It should be unfathomable that outside of one of our schools, as an event was letting out, six people--including a toddler and four teens--were shot. But of course, it is anything but unfathomable. It should horrify us all, but it should shock none of us.

Our schools must be safe. Our schoolyards must be safe. Our children's walks to and from school must be safe. Our communities must be safe. While we must do everything in our collective power to ensure that our schools and communities at large are safe, we cannot do this without real, systemic change to our commonwealth's gun laws."

Police are actively investigating the scene. No arrests have been made.
