The nine victims, all adults 23 to 40 years old, were taken to a hospital, police said.

A motive was not known Sunday. Police said it seems the shooters saw someone they were after and started firing, NBC Philadelphia reported.

Deputy Police Commissioner John Stanford said at a briefing Saturday that there is a heavy police force in the area.

“We have some brazen individuals who don’t care how many police are here or how many people are here," he said.

Mayor Jim Kenney tweeted: “I’m appalled and devastated by this despicable, brazen act of gun violence. My heart is with the family and loved ones of those injured, and with everyone impacted by this tragedy."

Police continue to investigate and asking anyone with information to come forward.
