One person killed as gunfire erupts at ‘pop-up’ party in Philadelphia


One man was killed and five others were wounded when gunmen opened fire at a “pop-up” party in Philadelphia.

Police say that at least 150 people were at the party when the violence unfolded in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The shooting began inside a restaurant with an event space and carried outside in to the street in the Nicetown neighborhood, according to authorities.

“There were at least 150 people in there that fled and believed they had to flee for their lives, so that’s a pretty big deal,” said Philadelphia Police Department Commissioner Danielle Outlaw.

The 29-year-old victim was shot 14 times throughout the body and the head and was pronounced dead at hospital.
