PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Five men were shot and taken to the hospital after being ambushed by teenagers in North Philadelphia Friday evening, police said.

The terribly violent incident drew the ire of both Police Commissioner Richard Ross and Mayor Jim Kenney. Both were on the scene to get a first-hand account of what happened.

Resident Gail Glenn heard the barrage of gunfire.

"It was like it was war," said Glenn. "It is a constant thing here, it's a constant thing. Gunshots."
