UPPER DARBY, Pa. (CBS) — A man was shot multiple times and killed as he was leaving a bar in Upper Darby, early Friday morning.
Police say the victim, Eric Lawson of Philadelphia, was celebrating his 43rd birthday at SA Cafe Lounge on Garret Road.
Surveillance video shows as Lawson leaves the bar around 2 a.m. and walks to his vehicle, parked on Ludlow Street and Copley Road.
Surveillance video then captures the moment the gunman runs up to Lawson as he’s inside a 2012 Bentley and fires multiple shots at point-blank range. Police say the gunman fired 14 rounds into the vehicle.
According to police, Lawson had $3,200 on him at the time of the shooting but it was not taken. Police believe the shooter was waiting in the area for the victim.
Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood says police had been called to the area earlier in the night for a report of a male dressed all in black with a gun.
The Upper Darby Police Department is asking anyone with information to please contact them.
