As of Wednesday, Philadelphia had seen 156 murders this year, a number the city's police commissioner called "alarming"

Last year, they spiked mainly in the East Division, which encompasses sections of North Philadelphia, Kensington and Frankford, mostly due to the explosion of the opioid drug trade.

This article has 1 other Philadelphia location (Show)

On Wednesday in Southwest Philadelphia, one man was shot dead and an off-duty police officer was struck in the cross fire when gunfire erupted during a 4th of July block party they were attending in the 7000 block of Buist Avenue around 10 p.m.

    Police Commissioner Ross expresses concern over city's murder trend
    This time last year, Philadelphia was on pace to recording 309 homicides, the most the city had seen since the 331 murders in 2012. As of July 4, homicides in the city nearly mirrored those from last year when the city saw its first significant bump.
