Several people were hurt in a shooting in Philadelphia during Eid celebrations.

;During a fight between two groups, up to three people were hurt.
;The police do not think this event has anything to do with the Eid celebrations.

People in Pennsylvania, an American state, were hurt when shots were fired in Clara Muhammad Square park in Philadelphia, which made Eid celebrations less fun.

Two groups started shooting at each other on Wednesday afternoon at a place where about 1,000 people were celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr, the Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan.

So far, no deaths have been reported, but Fox29 News claimed that up to three people were hurt in the shooting, which happened after about 30 rounds were fired.

Kevin Bethel, the commissioner of police in Philadelphia, said that one of the injured was a 15-year-old shooter with an assault rifle who was shot and killed by a police officer on duty.

The teenager who shot someone is in the hospital and is in stable condition, the commissioner said, adding that the police do not think the event has anything to do with the Eid celebrations.

There are good people at this event who just want to have fun 99% of the time. “Once again, we have young people firing guns at each other, which really ruined the sanctity of the event,” Bethel told the BBC.

At the same time, the cops have arrested five people and taken away five weapons from the scene of the crime.

There are three men, one woman, and the 15-year-old teenager in police arrest.

The event has made Muslims fear for their safety in a society and politics that are becoming more divided and have seen a rise in Islamophobic incidents in recent years.

Najah Bey, who was in Philadelphia for the Eid events, remembered what happened and said, “It’s sad in Philadelphia.” Sad that you can’t even have a party without being afraid of getting shot.

In the meantime, Philadelphia Mayor Cherelle L. Parker told the city’s Muslim community again that she stood with them and emphasized that everyone has the right to worship in peace, no matter what religion they follow.

On X, she wrote, “In the middle of Eid al-Fitr, a holy day of celebration, our city’s Muslim community witnessed a blasphemous act of gun violence today in a West Philadelphia park.”

“Every faith group has the right and the duty to worship in peace.” “We stand with the Muslim community and promise to work together to make our communities fair and bright again,” the mayor said.
