Surveillance video captures man shot at point-blank range in Upper Darby

- Surveillance video captured a man who police call a 'crazed gunman'. According to police, he shot a man at point-blank range in Upper Darby.

A man was captured on security video from a camera of a business that uses the alley off Market Street across from the busy 69th Street SEPTA hub.

Police say the 35-year-old victim had just helped his girlfriend into the car around 2 a.m. Sunday. They had just left a club about a block away. Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood says they actually passed right by the man.

"From behind the white carthe suburbanthe man comes out fires one shot. The bullet strikes the victim in the left arm. Then, in and out of his back," Upper Darby Superintendent Chitwood said.

The gunman simply ran off. The victim was rushed to the hospital where he's now in stable condition.

"We have nothing, there was no fight prior to the shooting. The victim claims he doesn't have anybody who he knows is after him," Superintendent Chitwood said.

That why Superintendent Chitwood says he released this video hoping somebody might recognize this man.
