It happened around midnight Tuesday on the 6200 block of Washington Avenue in Cobbs Creek.
Police say they found the victim, a man in his late 20’s or early 30’s, with a gunshot wound to the chest.
“Police did find a loaded, semi-automatic handgun in his waistband. They also found, in one of his pockets, a plastic bag which they could see in plain view that contained what appears to be crack-cocaine,” said Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small.
Police say they are working to get surveillance footage to try to identify the gunman.
