Bloody Weekend in Philadelphia - At Least 4 Dead

 Philly.com reports

Police are investigating a shooting in Frankford that left 26-year-old man dead and his 50-year-old father wounded.

An argument is believed to be the motive in the killing of Edwin Pagan outside his home.

Police found the older man shot once in his left forearm and the son suffering three gunshot wounds to his torso and groin.

Both were taken to Temple University Hospital, where Edwin Pagan died at 11:30 p.m., police said. 

Investigators said the father appeared to be intoxicated when police arrived, and witnesses told police they saw him shooting into the air with a handgun that was recovered by police. The witnesses told police they did not see who shot Pagan or his father.

Homicide detectives in the meantime are investigating the shooting deaths of three other men in Philadelphia over the weekend.
Do you think there are too many guns available there? I think that's definitely part of the problem.

  1. The real question should be...why didn't the police prevent these shootings?
