A man was shot in the head and killed in West Oak Lane. It happened around midnight at Block 7100 of North 19th Street.
Police describe the victim as being in his late teens or early twenties. He was dressed as a burger king.
Investigators say they found eight spent shell casings at the scene.
“Near the spent shell casings we found two sneakers. The victim is not wearing any sports shoes. So we believe these sneakers belonged to the victim and he may have run out of these sneakers in an attempt to escape,” Philadelphia Police Chief. Scott Small said.
Police said they also found an abandoned car near the scene that matched the suspect’s vehicle description. Police say the car was recently stolen during a house break-in and theft in the Northeast.
