Philadelphia Police said, they believe a suspect who was responsible for violently attacking a man earlier in the day, found himself becoming a victim of a violent attack that left him dead. A 6 ABC ACTION NEWS report said the incident happened around 6 pm. on Sunday, on the 5900 block of North Norwood Street in the Ogontz section of the city.
Police believe the victim is the same man who is accused of being involved in a beating and robbery just hours before being killed, according to police.
“We know the individual was clearly the intended target and the shooter or shooters shot at him literally inches from his body and continued to shoot while he was down. It was a brutal killing, and he was pronounced shortly after arrival at the hospital.”
Said Philadelphia Police Inspector, DF Pace. The victim was reportedly one of two men, who attacked two other men at a corner store on the 2000 block of Church Lane earlier in the same day. Police say none of the robbery victims was hospitalized from the beating. Police said the second victim was also severely beaten, they are reportedly searching for him now. The second suspect in the robbery/beating, was arrested when he showed back up at the scene of the crime shortly after the robbery.
Police say they are still searching for the gunman who killed the 26-year old victim. Police also said they are searching for the other robbery victim. No arrests have been made yet.
