A report on Monday said two people have been arrested in connection with a bloody mass shooting in Philadelphia over the weekend that killed three people and injured at least 11.
According to Fox 29, Rashwan Warren was busted at around 8 p.m. and charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault in connection with Saturday night’s devastation.
Curran Garner was also charged with aggravated assault and assault on law enforcement officers while recovering in hospital after being shot by police.
Authorities believe the first shot was fired by 34-year-old Gregory Jackson and seriously injured another man. The second gunman managed to fire, and the two exchanged 17 rounds in a barrage of bullets.
Jackson was hit and killed in the melee.
Jackson and the other gunman were both licensed to carry firearms. The second shooter was not charged because police said he acted in self-defense.
After Jackson fell to the ground, Garner is believed to have opened fire on South Street near Third Street.
When police confronted Garner, he aimed his weapon at them. The officers opened fire on Garner and he fell in the arm. The suspect was taken to hospital where he was expected to recover.
In addition to Jackson, the other fatal victims of Saturday night’s shooting were 22-year-old Christopher Miners and 27-year-old Alexis Quinn. Both Miners and Quinn are believed to be innocent victims.
A total of 14 people have received injuries due to the bullets.
Violence broke out on South Street in Philadelphia late Saturday.
“Yesterday was a dark day for Philadelphia,” Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw reportedly said on Sunday.
