A 46-year-old man was reported to be in critical condition, and two other men were in serious condition. Police did not immediately release the name of the deceased.
The shooting comes at a sensitive time for a nation grappling with a mass shooting in Charleston, South Carolina that left nine dead.
Also on Saturday, a shooting in West Philadelphia reportedly left seven injured, including a 2-year-old.
