PHILADELPHIA — Three men were shot and injured while hanging Christmas lights on their homes in Philadelphia Wednesday night.

Police say the victims were outside decorating their homes when a vehicle with tinted windows passed by and asked them if they had a problem, according to WTXF. In return, one man asked the car’s front passenger if he had a problem. The passenger then took out a handgun and began shooting at them.

The three victims all suffered various gunshot wounds. The 28-year-old man was shot in the back, the 36-year-old man was shot in the upper arm, and the 34-year-old male was shot twice in his abdomen.
