At least one person was killed and two others injured in a shooting that took place in a Target parking lot in Philadelphia’s Wynnefield Heights neighborhood on Tuesday night.

Police said one man was shot in the face when an unidentified gunman opened fire outside the Target store around 8:55 p.m. EST. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. Two other men were also injured in the shooting. While a 23-year-old man was shot several times in the shoulder, a 31-year-old man was shot in the back. Both the men were getting treated at the Lankenau Medical Center and were listed stable.

Meanwhile, investigators have recovered two guns and several bags of drugs from the scene. An investigation was ongoing and no arrests were made. Police have not released details about the suspect. 

Speaking about the shooting, acting Police Commissioner Christine Coulter said, "It's absolutely dangerous. The fact that there weren't more people who were injured-- you know we're very, very fortunate. The fact that someone would either want something bad enough or want to protect something bad enough to open fire in a parking lot is absolutely frightening."

This is a developing story.
