A young man died and four more people were wounded in a drive-by shooting outside a Philadelphia barber shop on Thursday evening, according to reports.

The deadly incident unfolded in the Germantown neighborhood at approximately 5:40 p.m.

A gunman opened fire from a passing car upon a group of people congregated on a busy sidewalk, according to Fox 29.

“[Philly police] say a car drove by a barber shop near Manheim Street on Germantown Avenue and at least 1 person opened fire at a group gathered outside. It happened just after 5:30 in broad daylight during heavy car & foot traffic,” Fox 29 reporter Kelly Rule wrote on social media.

A 28-year-old male was struck in the head and later died at Albert Einstein Hospital.

A 62-year-old male was hit multiple times and was reportedly rushed to hospital in “critical but stable condition.”

Two more adults in their twenties were listed in stable condition.

“We are tired of it. I know the media is tired of it. I know the neighbors are tired of it. The people who have children are tired of it,” Deputy Commissioner Ben Naish told local media.

“I can’t tell you why somebody at 5:30 in the evening would open fire on a group of people in broad daylight while there’s massive amounts of traffic going by and people in the street.”

At the time of this writing, no arrests had been made as of the latest available updates.
