Police are asking the public for help identifying two men in connection with a shooting outside a nightclub in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia.
The shooting occurred Sept. 18 at 3:43 a.m. on the 3000 block of Castor Avenue.
Surveillance video shows the two men arriving in the parking lot in a blue Jeep Grand Cherokee with silver trim. The duo entered the establishment and left a short time later.
When the men returned to the vehicle, a fight broke out in the parking lot. One of the suspects pulled out a handgun and fired several shots into the crowd before fleeing the area.
Three women and a man were injured in the shooting. A 22-year-old man was struck 10 times in the back, a 29-year-old woman was hit once in the thigh, a 23-year-old woman was shot once in the stomach and another 23-year-old woman was shot once in the leg.
Police described the two men only as a "suspect" and a "person of interest."
