PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – An execution-style street homicide was captured by police surveillance cameras in the city’s Germantown section Tuesday night.

Police say they began receiving reports at about 10pm of gunshots along the 200-block of West Seymore Street. When police arrived on the scene they found a 29-year-old man in the street suffering from three close-range gunshot wounds to the head and back.

The victim was rushed to Temple University Hospital where he was pronounced dead a half hour later.

Police are hoping the surveillance video will help reveal some clues to the identity of the gunman who remains at large.
