A group of masked men hopped out of a car on North Broad Street early Friday morning and began shooting at a group of people gathered on a corner. Six people wound up shot.

Philadelphia police believe the shooting just after 1 a.m. at North Broad and Colwyn Street in the Hunting Park neighborhood could be gang related.

Surveillance video shows a car pulling up to a group of people on the corner then men in ski masks getting out of the car and shooting, police said. The people on the corner began to run, one of them, a 32-year-old man, returning fire as he ran down the 1300 block of Colwyn Street.

Police rushed the man who apparently returned fire to the hospital for gunshot wounds to his arm and leg, investigators said. Four other men, between 29 and 33 years old, and a 26-year-old woman would then turn at local hospitals with gunshot wounds.

All the people who were shot were listed in stable condition except for a 29-year-old man who was listed in critical condition with a gunshot wound to his back after walking to Temple University Hospital, police said.

At least one of the other gunshot victims tried to get into a home as he fled, but he was kicked out, police said.

Police found evidence that at least 20 shots were fired.

Investigators said the shooting appeared to be gang related.

A neighbor who didn't want to be identified called for an end to the gun violence.

There were at least five other people shot overnight in Philadelphia. One of them died.

A man was found dead in the driver's seat of a Chevy parked at M and Bristol streets in the Juniata Park section of Philadelphia around 2:30 a.m., investigators said. He had been shot multiple times in his torso.

Two men were shot in the lower extremities while attending a family member's graduation party late Thursday night on Malta Street in the Kensington neighborhood, police said.

Two other men showed up at a hospital around 2 a.m. Friday, but it was unclear where they were shot, police said.
