PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- With homicides rising above 300 in Philadelphia, and shootings well above 1,000 this year, more acts of gun violence are happening with little consequence of who is around and who can see - including police.

On Sunday, at about 12:20 a.m., officers responded to 24th and Cecil B. Moore Avenue for a disturbance outside a bar where a large crowd gathered.

Officer started walking toward a man when he was shot five times - just feet away from police.

Officers tracked the vehicle and brought in two people for questioning.

The 32-year-old man who was shot was rushed by officers to Temple Hospital where he died.

"It all happened so fast ... it was like hit and go," said resident Mike Walker.

1. On par with Memphis

Memphis has the most violent crime of any city (last I saw).
