Help cops find thugs who shot three in bar

Police today released security video of a weekend triple shooting stemming from an argument in a West Philadelphia bar, in hopes that someone will recognize the two gunmen.

Cops hurried to the Gold Coast Lounge on Lancaster Avenue near Wallace Street just after 3 a.m. Sunday and found three men, ages 18, 19 and 20, each of whom had been shot once in the leg. The video shows two gunmen striding into the bar and blasting handguns as they chased down their victims. After the gunmen flee on foot, the video shows cops hustling into the bar, and one carrying a wounded man outside to take him to the hospital.

The suspects are described as black, about 20 years old and bearded. One was heavy-set and wore a hoodie with "56" on the front. The second had braids and wore a two-tone jacket with a shirt underneath showing a crown and the words "Hell Knows How We Ride" or "Hell Knows We Ride." Tipsters are urged to call 9-1-1 or Southwest Detectives at (215) 686-3183 or -3184.
