Man on house arrest shot to death on porch

- Philadelphia police say a man on house arrest was gunned down overnight, while he was sitting on his porch in Cobbs Creek.

Police say the 20-year-old man was hit numerous times in his face and chest as he sat on a plastic chair along the unit block of N. Yewdall Street at about 3 a.m.

The man, who was wearing an electronic ankle bracelet, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators say he was clearly targeted, but they don’t have a motive yet.

They didn't immediately release the man's name or say why he was on house arrest.

Police hope surveillance video from nearby homes will help them identify a suspect.
