At least 30 people were shot, seven fatally, over the weekend in Democrat-controlled Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

NBC Philadelphia reports there were 25 shootings that left behind more than 30 victims, fatal and non-fatal combined. Twenty-five people were wounded in the shootings while another seven were killed.

The weekend violence included gunfire at a block party around 11:30 p.m. Saturday. Breitbart News reported five people were injured in that shooting, and police were already on scene when it occurred, having been tipped off about the block party by social media posts.

6 ABC reported Philadelphia police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw commented on the incident, saying, “There were a lot of people out here. We do believe that someone knows who the shooters were and could possibly help us in identifying and figuring out exactly what happened.”

Outlaw did not speculate on the number of gunmen, but said shell casings from “several weapons were … found on the scene.”

On August 17, 2020, Breitbart News reported gun violence was raging in Democrat-controlled New York City as well.

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s (D) NYC witnessed over 50 shot from Thursday through Sunday, seven fatally. Breitbart News reported there were 12 shootings with 19 injured and one killed on Friday alone.

And at least 50 were shot, five fatally, over the weekend in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.
