Five people were murdered, and two were injured in a separate mass shooting in Philadelphia on Monday evening, including a 2-year-old boy and a 13-year-old boy, both of whom were shot in the legs, when a suspect wearing body armour and equipped with an AR-15 opened fire on strangers.
The sh00tings on 3,2023 Monday night happened a day after two people were kἰlled and 28 others were injured, nearly half of whom were children, in a hail of gμnfire at a neighbourhood block party in Baltimore. The reasons for all three recent shootings remained unknown.
The United States is dealing with an epidemic of mass sh00tings and gμn violence. Data collected by the Gμn Violence Archive shows around 340 mass sh00tings in the country thus far in 2023, with a mass sh00ting defined as an occurrence in which at least four people are shot, excluding the gμnman. On 4,2023 Tuesday, Biden criticized the massacre and reiterated his calls to strengthen America’s gμn laws.
Biden said in a statement, calling on Republican lawmakers-
“Our nation has once again endured a wave of tragic and senseless shootings, to come to the table on meaningful, commonsense reforms.”
Republicans in Congress have historically opposed attempts to dramatically modify gμn safety rules, citing constitutional protections for gμn ownership, and oppose Biden’s push to reinstate an assault weapons prohibition.

‘Begging’ for Action
“We are begging Congress to protect lives and do something about America’s gμn problem.”
Larry Krasner, the city’s district attorney, has asked Philadelphia state lawmakers for “reasonable legislation” similar to that found in neighbouring New Jersey and Delaware. “Some of that legislation might have made a difference here,” Krasner suggested.
Authorities in Philadelphia the suspect was a 40-year-old male who donned body armour and a ski mask and possessed an AR-15 semiautomatic weapon and a 9mm pἰstol. The deceased varied in age from 15 to 59 years.
Krasner has promised to present multiple murder and other counts against the shooter at his initial court appearance on Wednesday. Fort Worth police said no arrests had been made concerning a recent gμnshot at Como Fest, an event celebrating the Como neighbourhood’s African American roots.
Mayor Mattie Parker said to the Fort Worth Star-
“I choose to believe this is a few bad perpetrators that came into this neighbourhood to wreak havoc.”
Witnesses heard a barrage of gμnfire shortly before midnight, which caused some to believe it was fireworks but quickly led to panic for shelter. Hours later, indignant neighbours and community leaders marched through Como on July Fourth.
Police in Baltimore have stated that they are looking for many suspects. The most recent shootings occurred near the anniversary of last year’s Highland Park mass shooting outside Chicago, in which seven people were kἰlled, and 48 more were injured during an Independence Day parade. A 22-year-old guy remains in detention after being charged with 117 felonies concerning the mayhem.
