Philadelphia Police say they are searching for the suspect they say, shot and killed a man inside of a convenience store, in the city’s West Oak Lane section, on Tuesday night. 6 ABC ACTION NEWS, was at the scene shortly afterward, and reported that the shooting happened on the 7200 block of 72nd Avenue at around 7 p.m.
Police say a 30-year old man was gunned down by a suspect wearing a Nike hoodie, inside of the convenience store. The security cameras at the business caught the entire shooting. According to police, there were 14 shots fired inside of the convenience store. There were at least 10 other people inside of the store at the time of the shooting. Police believe the 30-year old man was the target of the shooting.
“Most of the spent shell casings are just feet (away) and some are just inches away from where the victim is lying. The shooter walked right up to this victim and fired multiple shots. You see the shooter run towards the front door of the property, then turn around and he runs back to the victim who is lying on the floor of the store. And when the shooter runs back, he stands over the victim and fires a second string of shots from point-blank range.”
Said Philadelphia Chief Inspector, Scott Small. Police say no weapon has been recovered and no one has been arrested so far.
