Man Shot 14 Times, Crashes Car, Dies

A man was behind the wheel when he was gunned down causing him to crash his car into a house in the city's Point Breeze section early Friday night.

The 46-year-old man was shot 14 times with bullets hitting him in the head and stomach while he was driving on the 1500 block of S. Cleveland St. just before 6 p.m. The hail of bullets caused the victim to crash his car into a nearby home, police said.

No one inside the house was injured and the man was transported to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania where he was pronounced dead a few minutes later, according to authorities.

Police believe the shots may have been fired from a nearby house. 

An investigation is underway. Anyone with information is urged to reach out to Philadelphia Police.
