An overnight shooting left two men dead and four other people suffering from gunshot wounds after a shooter opened fire in a suspected speakeasy in Philadelphia on Sunday, according to the Philadelphia Police Department. 

Just before 1 a.m. on Sunday, officers responded to a report of a person with a gun inside a home that was allegedly operating as a speakeasy.

Upon arrival at the home, officers located a 53-year-old male who suffered a gunshot wound to his face and was pronounced dead at the scene.
