Booted from a Southwest Philadelphia strip club by bouncers the in the wee hours of the morning May 11, police say a man came back with an AK-47 rifle looking for revenge and shot up the club, wounding one person.
In video of the shooting released Wednesday, the gunman, identified by police as Henry Pettigrew, 21, can be seen running through the parking lot carrying the rifle, falling once before entering the Purple Orchid Gentlemen's Club, on 61st Street near Passyunk Avenue, and then slipping and falling again once he gets inside. When he rights himself, he levels the gun and fires several shots into the club.
Police said one person suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the shooting. After the shooting, police said, Pettigrew jumped into a light-colored sedan -- possibly a Hyundai or Mitsubishi -- and took off. Cops are looking for both Pettigrew and the man who drove the getaway car.
Pettigrew is described as black, 5 feet 11 and 180 pounds with a thin beard. His last known address is on Belmar Terrace near 56th Street in Kingsessing.
The second suspect is described as a black man between 20 and 25, 5 feet 9 to 5 feet 10 with a medium build and a goatee. He wore a dark hooded jacket over a plaid button-down shirt, tan cargo shorts and tan boots.
