BMX Riding Cyclists Shoot Man Walking Down Street

Police are searching for two men involved in a shooting of a pedestrian along a North Philadelphia street.

The shooting took place on April 27 at 1:25 in the afternoon along the 2900 block of North Marshall Street, police said.

Surveillance video shows the 46-year-old victim walking down Marshall Street when two men slowly up the street behind him on bicycles. One of the men then pull out a handgun and fire on the male pedestrian -- who police say was hit once in the chest.

The man drops to the ground before getting up and running away. Police say a short time later he collapsed at the intersection of Marshall Street and Indiana Avenue.

Paramedics took the man to Temple University Hospital, where he currently remains, in extremely critical condition, authorities say.

The suspects are described as male, possibly teens, riding BMX style bikes. One suspect was wearing a dark blue hoodie and the other a light colored shirt with stripes.

Anyone with information is asked to call Philadelphia Police at 215.686.TIPS.
