After a violent 24 hours in Philly, Mayor Jim Kenney urged citizens and prosecutors to crack down on the city's gun crimes in order to help first responders and healthcare workers already dealing with the coronavirus pandemic . "In this particular time of crisis, if you're carrying an illegal gun, you need to be locked up and kept there," Kenney said during a Tuesday afternoon press conference. Between 12:30 a.m. Monday and midnight Tuesday, Philadelphia police were called to seven shootings in the city, three of which were homicides. The incidents included a shooting in which a 1-year-old boy, two teen girls and two women were shot by an unidentified gunman on West Harold Street in North Philadelphia. Full story
