Among those shot included three innocent bystanders in North Philadelphia. The suspected gunman in that shooting was later arrested after a three-hour standoff with police.

New York City: WABC reports over a dozen people were shot in the Big Apple during the weekend, several of them dying. While shootings are down 11.1 percent from this point last year and shooting victims are down 10.9 percent, residents still feel uneasy as examples of repeat criminals who are caught and released back onto the streets remains an issue. On Sunday, a shooting stemming from a card game outside St. Patrick's Cathedral "sent tourists and New Yorkers scrambling" in midtown Manhattan, according to NBC 4.

Washington, D.C.: Washington Commanders rookie running back Brian Robinson Jr. was shot and wounded late last week by two suspected black teenagers, aged between 15 and 17 years-old who attempted to carjack him near popular restaurant scene. D.C. police are still looking for the suspects.

Minneapolis: Monday marked the start of the city's police department investigating the 60th murder for 2022.

“It is unknown who he was arguing with,” LA police Lt. Letisia Ruiz told KTLA. “When he produced the handgun he shot into the crowd and that’s when individuals got struck by gunfire.”
