PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A man was gunned down right in front of his family last night in Kensington.
Police say the victim was just steps away from his front door on Howard Street when a gunman approached and pulled the trigger.
“He was standing on the sidewalk, with other family members, when the shooter walked up to him from point blank range — very close proximity — and fired six shots.”
Chief Inspector Scott Small says a Verizon worker who was nearby picked up the 32-year-old victim and brought him to the hospital.
“This man was shot multiple times, in his face his neck and his chest. He was pronounced dead at 5:45 p.m. at Episcopal Hospital.”
Small says it appears the motive for the shooting was drug related.
