Police: Overbrook gunman lured teen, shot him through door

- A 19-year-old man in Overbrook is in critical condition after he was shot several times while inside the doorway of his home. It happened in the 5600 block of Lebanon Avenue.

Police say the teen was targeted and knew the gunman, who set a chair on fire with gasoline to lure him out.

The victim shut the door but the gunman fired three shots through the door. The victim was hit in the chest and torso.

FOX 29’s Steve Keeley reported the victim’s roommates – a man and two women – told police they know who the gunman is from a previous incident.

They said he lives a few blocks away and was driving a silver Mercedes.

Police are looking for him.
