Cousin of rapper Meek Mill slain on Philly street

Police identified the victim as Angelo Colon. He and another man were standing outside a takeout restaurant at 18th Street and Snyder Avenue around 10 p.m. when a burgundy vehicle drove past and the occupants opened fire. Colon was shot in the head and later pronounced dead at the scene. The second man was shot several times in the leg. He was taken to an area hospital and was reported in critical but stable condition.

Colon was one of four people slain Tuesday in Philadelphia.
