Man Still Sought in Slaying of Father in Living Room

Police are asking for help from the public in finding a man accused of having killed his father in front of his mother in the living room of a northeast Philadelphia home.

Police say 60-year-old Mahendra Panjrolia was shot to death at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday in the Bustleton neighborhood.

Police allege that 31-year-old Sohan Panjrolia went upstairs, got an assault rifle and fired a shot in a first-floor bathroom, then emerged and aimed in the direction of his parents before firing multiple shots at his father.

Police say the younger man fled with the weapon in a car that was found several blocks away.

Police were still looking for him as of Sunday night. Police say the suspect is schizophrenic, may be using drugs and should be considered armed and dangerous. It's unclear whether he has an attorney.
