Man fatally shot during Philly rap video filming

    A man has been shot in the head and killed during the filming of an amateur rap video in Philadelphia.

    The shooting happened last night in front of a crowd of about 100 people. Police say the man was in his late 20s or early 30s.

    After he was shot, he was accidentally run over by a car trying to leave the scene. Police say the driver won’t be charged.

    Authorities say three gun-wielding men were arrested shortly afterward and one has been identified by witnesses as the shooter.
