After the shooting, the men ran off and fled in a white Acura before driving off, police said. A motive for the crime has not been identified, police said.
“There was no robbery, there was no argument, they didn’t take anything, they didn’t ask for anything, these three males walked right up to this victim – while he was sitting in the passenger seat – and fired two shots from point-blank range,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.
