A 37-year old, manager at SEPTA, and father of seven, was shot and killed in front of his house during a shooting that police called an “ambush execution.” According to a CBS-3 Philly report, the shooting happened on Washington Lane in the Germantown section of the city at around 1 a.m. on Monday morning.
First arriving police officers at the scene reported finding the body of the victim in his front lawn.
According to multiple witnesses, a black sedan was parked outside of the victim’s house for an undisclosed amount of time. The suspect in the car was laying in wait for the unsuspecting victim to exit his home. When he did, the shooter ran up and ambushed the victim. The shooter fired at least 15 shots.
“Witness statements indicate the rate of volume of fire from the handgun was in such rapid succession that it sounded like a machine gun. That brings us concern that this weapon may have been modified with the automatic sear on the back to produce that type of machine pistol”, said Philadelphia Police Captain, Anthony Ginaldi.
No suspects were named, but police believe the victim’s Ring camera may have captured the entire incident, which police hope will be helpful in identifying the suspect. For now, no arrests have been made in the murder.
