Police have released the identity of the man killed in a shootout in the Feltonville section of North Philadelphia early yesterday.
Broderick Howard, 26, of Alcott Street near Large in Oxford Circle, died after being shot multiple times by a 25-year-old man, whom police spokeswoman Officer Tanya Little said Howard shot at first.
Police have ruled Howard's death as justifiable, meaning his shooter acted in self-defense. The identity of that man, who Little said remains in critical condition at Temple University Hospital after being shot once in the chest by Howard, remains unknown.
A police source said today that the 25-year-old victim has a concealed-carry permit for the handgun used in the shootout, which was recovered at the scene, along with another handgun and 37 shell casings.
