The shooting took place in the city’s Ogontz area, CBS Philadelphia reported.
The victims are four men and a 16-year-old boy. One man was shot in the head and is in critical condition, while the other four victims are stable.
No arrests have been made, the outlets reported.
Police commissioner Richard Ross said he believes the shooting is gang-related and the victims, who may have been sitting together when the attack began, were targeted.
The shooting took place less than five kilometres from Wednesday’s shooting, in which a gunman barricaded himself in a home while allegedly firing on police.
Police said the suspect fired more than 100 rounds and two officers were trapped in the home for five hours. The gunman was eventually arrested.
The gunfight resulted in six officers shot. They have since been released from hospital.
The suspect in Wednesday’s shooting was identified by authorities as Maurice Hill, 36.
