VIDEO: Suspects in Society Hill shooting caught on tape
Police released surveillance video of two suspects who allegedly attempted to carjack a man in Old City early Monday, then shot him in the back when he tried to run away.
Police said the victim, 33, left Blurr Nightclub, located at 29 S. Banks St., and was walking back to his car parked on the 100 block of Walnut Street when he was around 1:45 a.m. approached by two gunmen.
The men allegedly demanded the victim’s car keys. When he fled, police said, one of the suspects shot him in the back.
Both men then fled west on the 200 block of Walnut Street. They are described as two 5-foot-8-inch to 5-foot-10-inch black males between 150 and 160 pounds. Anyone with information is asked to call 215-686-8477.
