Police say the 69-year old victim was approached by two males who pronounced a robbery. According to Philadelphia Chief Inspector, Scott Small, one of the suspects shot the victim, before both men fled on foot.

“For some unknown reason, one of these males fired at least two gunshots, striking our victim in the abdomen, torso area. He collapsed inside of the vestibule area right by the doors, right by two ATM’s”

Small said on Thursday evening. The victim was found lying in the lobby area, according to police. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say they found a large wad of cash next to the ATM’s, and believe the robbers fled the scene after having taken little or even no cash in the robbery/murder.

No suspects have been named at this time and no arrests have been made in the murder/robbery yet.
