PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia homicide detectives are going over video from cameras in a South Street neighborhood in hopes of identifying possible suspects in the weekend murder of a popular disc jockey.

Police say they’ve recovered footage from cameras along the 200 block of South Street where 36-year-old Tom Watson, also known as DJ Fenicx, was shot and killed as he was moving his equipment to his apartment.

They’re hoping the images might give them a glimpse of the two men they believe attempted to rob and then fatally shoot Watson in the pre-dawn hours Saturday inside the Haagen Dazs store which was the access point to his second-floor apartment.

Investigators believe the pair rushed Watson from behind after he was dropped off by a friend after a gig at the Copabanana.

Police say when that friend walked back to his car, he saw the equipment still in the doorway.

They say when the friend walked back, he was stopped by one of the two alleged attackers. The friend heard gunshots inside and ran in to see what had happened.

He found Watson dead on the floor inside the ice cream store with multiple gunshot wounds.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact the homicide unit.
