PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Family and friends are saying their goodbyes to a father who was gunned down outside his Spring Garden home last week.
A funeral was held at Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul for 38-year-old Gerard Grandzol.
Grandzol had just parked his SUV at 15th and Melon Streets last Thursday when he was confronted by two suspects — 16-year-old Marvin Roberts and his brother, 21-year-old Maurice Roberts.
Police say the suspects took his wallet and demanded his car keys. Grandzol’s 2-year-old daughter was in the back seat of the vehicle at the time.
Police say Marvin Roberts shot Grandzol in the head when he refused to hand the car keys over.
