Three men were killed early yesterday morning in Philadelphia in separate attacks.
A 34-year-old man, who lived in an apartment above the restaurant he owned - Wings & Things - in the 2300 block of South 65th Street, was killed as he returned home at 1:47 a.m., said Lt. Mark Deegan of the Police Department's Homicide Division. Two men confronted him in a robbery attempt. He resisted and was shot more than once in the chest.
He was pronounced dead at 2:08 a.m. at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. The man's name was not released because relatives had not yet been notified. No arrests have been made.
Shortly after midnight, a man was killed in the 1300 block of South Paxon Street, in Southwest Philadelphia, in a domestic dispute with his live-in companion.
The man, 65, was stabbed once in the torso. His companion, 52, was charged with his killing yesterday, Deegan said. Police were not releasing either name yesterday.
In North Philadelphia, Peter Styles, 25, was found on a sidewalk in the 2300 block of North Colorado Street after having been shot several times in the chest. Styles, who lives in that neighborhood, was pronounced dead at Temple University Hospital at 2:38 a.m. Deegan said police had made no arrests in the case and did not know a motive for the shooting.
