VIDEO: Broad-Daylight Drive-By Shooting Leaves 1 Man Dead, 5 Wounded

Philadelphia, PA – Philadelphia police have released video of a mid-day drive-by shooting on Monday that left five people wounded and one man dead (video below).

The shooting occurred at about 2:18 p.m. on Sept. 20 at the intersection of Broad Street and Chew Avenue in the Fern Rock neighborhood, WCAU reported.

Police released surveillance video of the shootings on Tuesday that showed a silver Chrysler 300 with dark tinted windows all the way around shooting at a group of people on the sidewalk.

The video showed that just as the silver sedan pulled adjacent to the people, the rear passenger-side window opened and someone opened fire on the pedestrians with a semiautomatic handgun, WCAU reported.

The car slowed down but never stopped as it released a hail of bullets into the people on the sidewalk.

Surveillance video showed people diving to the sidewalk and dashing behind cars to take cover.

Police said that five men ages 19, 22, 24, 25, and 26, and one 28-year-old woman were shot, WCAU reported.

The 26-year-old victim – later identified as Steven Jones – was shot multiple times in the chest.

Jones was transported to Albert Einstein Medical Center and pronounced dead at 2:55 p.m., WCAU reported.

The other five victims were expected to survive their wounds, FOX News reported.

Police said the 28-year-old woman was shot once in her right shoulder.

The 22-year-old man was shot in his right thigh, the 24-year-old man was shot in the right forearm, the 25-year-old man was shot in the right hand, and the 19-year-old man was shot in the right leg, according to WCAU.

Officials released the video of the drive-by shooting along with additional details about the suspect vehicle, including that it had a custom black grill, low-rider tires, and tinted headlamps and rear lamps.

Police said the gunman fired at least 24 shots into the group on the sidewalk using a semiautomatic pistol, FOX News reported.

The occupants of the suspect vehicle should be considered “armed and dangerous,” according to police.

Authorities have put up a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the gunman, FOX News reported.
