Man shot dead in North Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — A man has died after a shooting in North Philadelphia that police say could be drug-related.

It happened just after 11pm Monday at the 2400 block of North Chadwick Street.

Police say a man in his 20s was found face down in the middle of the street with at least six gunshot wounds.

“It appears the gunman or gunmen walked right up to this victim and shot him multiple times,” said Scott Small, chief inspector of the Philadelphia Police Department.

The victim was taken to Temple University Hospital where he died.

Police are investigating a motive for the shooting but say drugs may have played a role.

“There’s a possibility this is narcotics-related, because we found a vial that appears to contain a green, grass-like substance,” Small said.

Police say they will be looking at footage from multiple cameras along the road to try to find the killer.
