West Philadelphia shooting – Man killed in execution-style shooting at grocery store
West Philadelphia shooting – Authorities say a person was killed Friday afternoon in an execution-style shooting at a West Philadelphia grocery store.
It happened at about 3:45 p.m. Friday at the Gregory Grocery at 50th and Arch streets, police said.
A 38-year-old man was shot once in the head while playing video games inside the store and was pronounced dead on scene.
Surveillance footage from the store showed a man walk up behind the victim and shoot him in the head at point-blank range.
Danisha Dingle, a friend of the victim, said he loved playing video games.
She spoke to him only an hour before the shooting.
“I told him that I loved him. I’m sad, but I’ll try to get through,” Dingle said.
This is an ongoing investigation.
