Police are searching for a suspect after a man was shot dead while sitting on the front porch of Cobbs Creek in the early morning.
Officers patrolling Philadelphia’s 18th District responded to Block 5200 from Catherine Street at around 12:15 a.m. to reports of gunfire.
Family members told the police that the 49-year-old victim was sitting on the closed balcony of the house when someone who also lived in the house fired from the window and made a mistake.
Then the shooter opened the front door and shot the victim in the stomach, before running away.
The victim was transferred to Bin-Presheikhi Hospital in critical condition and later died of his wounds. No arrests have been reported at this time
