Gunfire pelted a car, killing the driver and causing the vehicle to crash early this morning in Southwest Philadelphia. “As he succumbed the car struck two vehicles and as it came to rest, it flipped over on its hood,” said Homicide Sgt. William Gallagher. The incident [NOT pictured, right] happened in the 1000 block of S. 59th Street around 2 a.m.
Just before the shooting, the driver had dropped a friend at a house. The friend, who is not a suspect, was questioned by police, Gallagher said. “We don’t know if it was a robbery attempt or if there was an argument,” Gallagher said. The victim, who was in his early 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene.
