PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Police have identified the victim in the deadly shooting and robbery inside a South Street ice cream shop early Saturday morning (see related story).
Police responded to a call of a burglary in progress and shots fired at the Haagen Dazs store in the 200 block of South Street at about 3:30 a.m. Inside, officers found 36-year-old Tom Watson dead with multiple gunshot wounds.
Watson lived in an apartment above the ice cream shop. He worked as a DJ at local bars and restaurants and he was unloading his gear after a gig when he was attacked.
