A 28-year-old man was shot seven times around 4:30 p.m. Thursday afternoon, in front of a home on North 11th Street near Jessup Place, between Poplar and Parrish Streets in North Philadelphia.
The victim was transported to Hahnemann Hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to Fox29.
According to investigators, the victim had just parked his car when a white Jaguar pulled up and someone opened fire. A man grieving at the scene fell to the gourd crying “Who killed my son?”
A police source described the incident as an execution-style attack, according to the Philadelphia Daily News. Police said the victim’s car was found still running at the site of the shooting, according to philly.com. 6ABC has a video report.
Earlier Thursday afternoon, a 22-year-old man was shot four times on Glenmore Avenue near South 62nd Street in Southwest Philadelphia. Medics rushed him the the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where he was listed in stable condition.
Another man was shot on Glenmore Avenue near Island Avenue early Monday in nearby Eastwick, as we previously reported.
