$15k reward in fatal shooting of Tacony restaurant owner

Jin House owner Huang Xiang, 27, killed Friday.

The city has announced a $15,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of two men who shot and killed a Tacony restaurant owner Friday.

Jin House Takeout Restaurant owner Huang Xiang, 27, was working when, shortly before 7 p.m., two unknown men entered the restaurant on the 4800 block of Longshore Avenue and announced a robbery.

Though Xiang was reportedly cooperative, the gunmen shot him in the chest, mere feet away from his wife as she shielded their eight-month-old daughter. Xiang died on the scene at 7:13 p.m.

The suspects are described as two black men last seen wearing all dark clothing and possibly black ski masks.

Police ask anyone with information to call 215-686-TIPS (8477) or to contact the Homicide Unit at 215-686-3334 or 3335.
