Police: Man shot at least 20 times and killed inside SW Philly corner store, 2 suspects sought

Crime scene investigators put down evidence markers inside and outside a Chinese take-out in Southwest Philadelphia.

It's where police say someone shot a 39-year-old man 20 times inside the store.

It happened just before 6:15 Friday evening on the 5100 block of Hadfield Street. Shell casings and clothing remained outside the store just feet away from the door.


Police took the victim to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center where he was pronounced dead about 12 minutes after the shooting. Investigators have very little information on the gunmen.

"One entered the store. The other shooter remained outside the store. We have two males who fled southbound on South 51st Street from Hadfield," said Captain Anthony Mirabella with Philadelphia Police.

Police say no store employees were hurt.

Neighbors told FOX 29’s Shawnette Wilson, off camera, the employees work behind a bulletproof glass.

Two hours after the shooting, police were waiting on an interpreter to help get any additional information from the store workers about what happened.

Police have not made any arrests do they have a motive.
