    A father of four -- who is well-known to police -- is dead after he was shot twice in the head in a Philadelphia driveway Friday.

    Thirty-seven-year-old Cornell Drevitt was the intended target of the gunman, who fired shots from an automatic weapon at close range in a driveway on the 1500 block of East Luzerne Street in the Juniata Park section of the city around 6 p.m., according to authorities.

    Drevitt was transported to a Temple University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:12 p.m., according to officials.

    The victim has a history with police, including thefts and drug-related crimes, public records show.

     

    Authorities have not released a motive, but said they believe there was just one shooter.

    Police are reviewing private security cameras from homes in the area as part of their investigation.
