Philadelphia police said they are looking for suspects caught on camera doing what appears to be illegal car maneuvers, or “donuts,” minutes before a man was shot dead on Kelly Drive earlier this month.
Police said the 30-year-old victim, Taion Carter, died after he was shot in the head in a parking lot on the 2400 block of Kelly Drive the morning of July 16.
Video released by police on Monday shows several cars performing “high-risk, illegal maneuvers” in the lot around 6 a.m. Police said officers discovered the man dead at 6:06 a.m.
Investigators said the group and the victim got into an altercation, which led to the deadly shooting.
Officers were searching for a blue 2012 Dodge Charger, seen in the video, with black front end, black rims and a Pennsylvania tag.
As of Monday, there were at least 307 homicides in Philadelphia this year, down 3% from the same time last year which was ultimately the deadliest in the city on record.
