PHILADELPHIA — Three people have been killed and at least 11 other people were injured in a shooting late Saturday night in Philadelphia, authorities said.

The Philadelphia Police Department responded to reports of a person holding a gun in a large crowd.

Police Inspector DF Pace said at a news conference that shots had been fired at the downtown crowd and that a police officer had fired at a suspect. It is not clear whether the suspect was hit.

“You can imagine there were hundreds of people just enjoying South Street, like every weekend, when this shooting broke out,” Pace said.

The condition of those injured by gunfire is unknown.

Authorities say no arrests have been made, but two weapons have been recovered.

The Department said on Twitter to avoid the area and several people were injured.
