SUV Goes Missing After Deadly Gas Station Shooting

Philadelphia Police searched for not only the shooter who killed a man overnight but also the victim’s car.

Investigators say a man approached a group of friends standing outside the Gulf gas station at Wynnefield and Bryn Mawr Avenues in the city’s Wynnefield section around 11:45 p.m. Tuesday.

An argument ensued and that’s when the suspect opened fire on the group.

“As the shooting occurs, the one friend ran into the store, the other one runs over here and subsequently dies and the third male has disappeared – we don’t know where he is at this point,” said Police Lt. John Walker.

The 23-year-old victim was struck in the shoulder and back and later died at the hospital.

Police said the victim’s white Oldsmobile Bravada went missing after the shooting. It wasn’t clear if the suspect or the third friend took the SUV away from the scene.

Walker said police would release info on the vehicle once they figure out who jumped into it and drove off.

Investigators said surveillance video captured some of the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Philadelphia Police.
