UPPER DARBY, Pa. (AP)
A Philadelphia man has been jailed on charges he ambushed a man outside his suburban home and killed him because police say the suspect blamed him for a recent drug arrest.
Lawrence Lucas, 39, has been jailed since Tuesday night.
Upper Darby police Superintendent Michael Chitwood says Lucas was an "absolute assassin" when he gunned down 29-year-old Dewayne Lancaster outside an apartment complex early Tuesday.
Police say they found Lucas at a bus terminal shortly after the shooting and have linked him to the crime using a shoe print and other physical evidence.
Lucas remained in the Delaware County jail on Thursday on first-degree murder and other charges. Online court records don't list an attorney for him.
