Police said six people were killed in Philadelphia, including a pregnant woman.
The Philadelphia Police Department said that three women, ages 59, 24 and 18, were hospitalized in stable condition, and the fetus was in good health.
Police said that three teenage boys, two aged 18 and the other aged 17, were also shot. They are also in stable condition after going to hospitals in private cars.
At least 98 people under the age of 18 have been shot in Philadelphia since the start of the year, according to data compiled by the Philadelphia Police Department.
“Just last weekend, the city launched a mass violence intervention strategy to target a small group of people driving the armed violence that plagued the city, and to send a clear message that the shooting must stop,” said Dave Kenshin, a Philadelphia spokesperson. The Office for the Prevention of Violence said in a statement.
“We were shocked by the senseless violence that took place last night at 38:00,” Poplar Police Commissioner Daniel Ottlaw said in a statement, as is Poplar. “These lawless acts have no place in our societies; and I remain firmly established that we will hold accountable those individuals who seek to harm our city.”
Police stated that no arrests were made and no weapons were found.
