Cameras Capture West Philadelphia Shooting That Left Three Wounded

Surveillance cameras at a West Philadelphia corner store captured a broad-daylight shooting that left three men wounded.

In the video obtained by NBC10, several men are standing on a corner near 55th Street and Cedar Avenue Tuesday afternoon when a white SUV pulls up and stops. Two men jump out of the driver's and passenger doors, pull out guns, and begin shooting at the group on the corner.

Police said three men suffered non-life-threatening gunshot wounds as they ran to escape.

A 28-year-old man was shot in the left side of his buttocks, a 31-year-old man was shot in the left side of his buttocks, and a 34-year-old man was shot in his left hand, according to police. All three went to an area hospital where they are listed in stable condition.

The gunmen jumped back into the SUV and took off seconds after unloading on the corner. The shooting happened within a block of Boys' Latin Charter School, and the school was placed on lockdown for a period of time after the shooting. No students were injured.

Police have not provided any details on what motivated the shooting but say the victims were all intended targets.

The gunmen remain at large.
