A weekend of gun violence in Philadelphia left four dead and at least six people injured. One flare-upjesusgunbottle.jpg involved a shoot-out near an all-night Center City pharmacy early yesterday.

Shortly after 2 a.m., two men were wounded when a disturbance in a nightclub apparently spilled out into the streets of Center City near a CVS Pharmacy, police said. Police identified them as New Jersey residents, ages 25 and 26.

Police said the altercation may have resulted from an earlier dispute in the Tragos nightclub near 19th and Chestnut Streets. Police said that they weren’t sure if the incidents were connected, but that the gunshots erupted shortly after a bouncer moved the dispute onto the street and the two men were shot as they attempted to flee.

Both men were treated for leg wounds at area hospitals. Police had no suspects.

The weekend’s death toll included Harrison Fambrough, 25, of Northeast Philadelphia, who was found dead in the passenger seat of a parked car on the 2800 block of Welsh Road early Saturday morning. Fambrough had been shot in the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene.
INQUIRER: Homicide detectives had made no arrests in Fambrough’s killing as of late yesterday.
