‘It’s Exhausting’: Philadelphia Reports 20 People Shot, 4 Killed In Deadly Weekend

By Taylor Giles

At least twenty people were shot and four more people were stabbed over the weekend in Philadelphia.

Out of at least 20 shooting victims, four were pronounced dead over the weekend, according to Fox 29. The first shooting of the weekend occurred Friday night when a man was shot and killed in the city’s Fairhill section at approximately 9:30 p.m.

Philadelphia marked its 380th homicide of 2022 on Saturday, according to CBS News. The city is on pace to see more murders than in 2021, which was the deadliest year on record.

Joseph Dupree was nearby when a 64-year-old man was shot four times Saturday at a trolley station platform, CBS News reported. The victim was later pronounced dead at Jefferson Hospital.

“It’s exhausting,” Dupree said. “I just want to be able to walk around and not fear for my life.” (RELATED: Videos Show Stark Contrast In Philadelphia As Two Officers Get Shot While Fireworks Fly Overhead)

Last weekend, at least nine people were killed and 19 more were injured by shootings in Philadelphia.
