Man Shot to Death in Front of Children

A man was shot on a Hunting Park street corner as his young children stood next to him.

A 32-year-old man was shot in the head just before 9:30 p.m. on Thursday on the 500 block of West Cornwall Street in the Hunting Park section of Philadelphia, in front of his two children.

Philadelphia Police told NBC10 the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

"What makes this shooting very disturbing is the fact that this homicide took place in front of the victim's tender aged children," Philadelphia Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

Police have not made any arrests. Investigators say witnesses reported seeing two men running from the scene.
