Temple University Shooting: Images of a person that Philadelphia police think shot a pistol around a group of young people on Saturday night close to Temple University’s campus have been made public. Up to 500 young people had congregated close to the Liacouras Center about 4:30 p.m. They were observed darting onto the road and dodging cars. It was not until after six o’clock in the evening, according to the police, that the gathering dispersed.

According to the university’s office of Public Safety, officers were stationed to keep an eye on the crowd and were made aware of a “meet-up” that had been promoted on social media close to Broad Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue.
Nevertheless, the Citizen’s App’s video captures the subsequent mayhem. In the hopes that someone would identify him, police released images of the person they suspect is behind the gunfire. Although no one was harmed when the rounds were fired, students were alarmed by the violence, according to the police.
“We took the tube; we were in town and the only reason we knew about it was social media, but if we didn’t, we would’ve just taken the tube to get here and we would’ve just; it could’ve been a lot worse,” Jared, who is a junior at Temple, said.
Having watched videos of the gathering, he claims he stayed away from Broad Street. “We know what happens in this area and stuff and with more police patrols, it could cut down, but you don’t see them at all unless something happens,” Dmar, a sophomore, said.
By 8:30 p.m., according to police, the Broad Street scene was cleared, but another violent event started half a mile away at 19th and Diamond Streets. There was a triple shooting on Sunday at about 1:20 a.m., according to Philadelphia police.
An 18-year-old man was wounded in the arm, a 17-year-old man was shot in the arm and head, and a 15-year-old girl was said to have had a minor head wound. The 17-year-old’s health is grave. According to Temple, neither event included any students.
Vice President for Public Safety Jennifer Gryphon of the school stated, “Our number one priority is keeping the community safe, informed, and connected, and we take that very seriously.” “This behavior is not acceptable and will not be tolerated.” “When you’ve lived here long enough, you kind of dissociate from the idea that you might get shot or whatever else you’re slightly more scared about,” said Khushi Kumar, a senior resident.
