Five people were shot and a sixth person was stabbed during a barrage of crimes across Philadelphia on Sunday, according to police.
The violence occurred over a three-hour span in neighborhoods that included Frankford, Nicetown, and Southwest Philadelphia. Each of the victims was reported in stable condition, police said. Authorities did not identify any of the victims, or announce the arrest of any suspects.
