Video: Suspect sought in July shooting that killed 32-year-old man

Philadelphia police are looking to identify and locate a suspect they say shot and killed another man earlier this summer in an incident that was captured on nearby surveillance cameras.

The incident occurred back on Friday, July 31st on the 8400 block of Williams Avenue in East Mount Airy. 

Surveillance video shows the hooded suspect running up to an SUV pointing and firing a gun. As the suspect gets closer to the vehicle the driver crashes into a parked car, bringing his vehicle to a stop.

While the vehicle is stopped, the gunman can be seen walking up to the passenger side window and continuing to shoot into the car from close range.

Adolphus Gray, 32, was killed in the shooting. Gray’s roommate said he moved to Philadelphia from Liberia 5 years ago, leaving his wife and daughter behind, and worked as an Uber and Lyft driver.

The suspect was seen fleeing the scene on foot southbound on the 1300 block of Mt. Pleasant Avenue. The suspect has been described by police as a Black male with medium length hair. He was wearing a light gray Nike hoodie, black compression pants, and maroon shorts.

"Handgun shops were considered essential businesses. Those things should not happen in a pandemic. We should be able to control the flow of weapons during crisis time so people have less guns in their hands," Mayor Jim Kenney said.

Anyone with information about the incident or the suspect is asked to contact police.
