Caught on Video: Rifle-Wielding Man Sprays Philadelphia Block With Gunfire

Police on Sunday morning were still searching for a gunman shown on surveillance video running out of a Kensington, Philadelphia, barbershop armed with a rifle and opening fire.

One man was killed in the shooting, police said, and two others were injured.

In surveillance video obtained by NBC10, the gunman, wearing a white T-shirt, can be seen running on E Street just north of Allegheny Avenue firing a black rifle.

A witness told NBC10 the unidentified suspect walked into a barbershop on the block Saturday afternoon carrying a large box. The man sat down as if he was going to get a haircut but pulled out a rifle from the box minutes later, according to the witness. The man then allegedly started an argument, ran outside the barbershop and opened fire.

A 46-year-old man, 59-year-old man and 33-year-old man were all struck in the shooting.

The 46-year-old was struck once in the chest. He was taken to Temple University Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 2:48 p.m.

The 59-year-old was struck once in the left arm and twice in the left side of the chest. He was taken to Temple where he is currently in stable condition.

The 33-year-old man was struck once in the back. He was taken to Temple where he is currently in critical condition.
