Police have identified the two men who were slain in separate shootings about 15 minutes apart in Philadelphia on Wednesday but are continuing to search for their killers.
The first deadly shooting happened at 1:06 a.m. Wednesday on the 6000 block of Allman Street in Southwest Philadelphia, police said.
A 49-year-old man was found on the street, suffering from several gunshot wounds. He was taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, where he died at 1:40 a.m.
Authorities on Thursday identified the victim as Darvey Johnson, of Southwest Philadelphia.
Then, about 1:20 a.m., 27-year-old Edwin Breazeale was found shot inside a 2015 black Toyota Camry that was on the unit block of North 51st Street. Breazeale, of the city's Mill Creek section, was pronounced dead at the scene at 1:31 a.m.
The shooter was believed to have opened the passenger door and fired several shots into the car, striking the head of the victim, who was sitting in the driver's seat, Chief Inspector Scott Small told reporters.
