One recent incident took place in Philadelphia and was caught on surveillance video. The footage shows a gun battle taking place in the middle of a street.

Six suspects can be seen running towards a street corner and firing their guns. Another angle shows their target: a group standing on another street corner, who end up returning fire. A third angle shows several shooters being struck by gunfire.

Police say around 87 shots were fired. One victim was found at the scene of the crime and taken to the hospital, and five more would end up taking themselves to nearby hospitals.
