& # 39; I looked outside all you just heard was my aunt screaming. When I walked to the door, they were three bodies – two bodies lay on the middle staircase and there was one on the upper staircase. And they just didn't move, & said Chris Griffin ABC6.

Richard Ross, Philadelphia Police Commissioner, said the victims were about to film a hip-hop video when the shooting took place.

& # 39; They were about to make a rap video when someone, a few people, came to photograph one or more people, & # 39; said Ross.

& # 39; These are all very young men. Unfortunately this is what we see again and again, but hopefully you know that we are bringing someone forward because these are incidents where we are concerned about retaliation. & # 39;
