Police: Young Man In Critical Condition After Shots Fired Into Party At North Philadelphia Airbnb Property

A young man is fighting for his life after he was shot at a house party in North Philadelphia. Police say the situation could have been much worse after at least one gunman started shooting through the windows of a rented house on the 1900 block of Page Street.

The lights are still on but no one is home.

Eyewitness News has seen several people who were at the party return to the scene to try and collect their belongings, only to be reminded of the chaotic morning by all the bullet holes.

One thing was on Bril Taylor’s mind as he was upstairs.

“Just get on the floor, don’t get shot,” Taylor said. “I was upstairs, it happened so fast.”

Police responded to shots fired around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, finding a man believed to be in his 20s inside the home suffering multiple gunshot wounds to his chest.

“They immediately took the male to Temple Hospital and he’s now listed in critical condition,” Captain George Fuchs said.

Eyewitnesses say someone rented out the Airbnb property to host a house party which was taking place at the time when the shooting happened.
