According to Morgan Zalot of the Philadelphia Daily News: “The neighbor on the block who saw the body said there was often drug action on the corner, and that people were usually shuffling by his porch all hours of the night, but said he didn’t notice anyone in the area other than the victim Wednesday night.”

Zalot also reported on a gun battle that killed a man in the Kingsesing section of the city earlier Wednesday evening: “Police said the man walked out of a store at the corner of 53rd Street and Greenway Avenue around 6 p.m. and was shot twice in the chest and once in the head.”
