Cops Ask For Public’s Help Finding The D-Bags Who Shot Up The Purple Orchid With An AK-47

MYFOXPHILLY: Police say they’re looking for the public’s help to find a man seen on surveillance video firing an AK-47 into a car and a gentleman’s club earlier this month in Southwest Philadelphia. It was 1:55 a.m. on May 11 when police say two men were in a dispute with management and bouncers at the Purple Orchid, located at 3275 South 61st Street in the city’s Elmwood section. After the men were removed from the club, one of them – identified by police as 21-year-old Henry Pettigrew – returned with an AK-47 rifle and fired numerous shots into a vehicle in the parking lot. Then, the man runs into the clip, slipping as he goes for a second door, then opens it and sprays the club with gunfire. One person was wounded in the shooting, but the injuries weren’t life-threatening, police said. The man then drove off in a light-colored sedan, which police described as possibly being a Hyundai or Mitsubishi, driven by the second man. At the time of the incident, police said the shooting was over a disc jockey refusing to play the man’s favorite song. MORE
