Sunday night, a gunman opened fire on a man in a South Philly parking lot, seriously injuring him and narrowly missing the victim's 5-year-old passenger. Today, police released a video of the incident that they hope will generate tips about the shooter's identity.
The ambush unfolded about 8:15 p.m. in the parking lot of the Walgreen's on Oregon Avenue near 23rd Street, when a 45-year-old man parked his car in the lot. Before he could get out of the car, another sedan pulled up behind him, and the driver got out, blasting 17 shots at the man. The burly gunman then got back in his car and reversed to flee. The child was uninjured, and surveillance video shows him running from his car into the arms of a concerned passer-by. See a video of the shooting here.
