Patro Siboram murder: Vigil held for Philadelphia gas station employee killed in shooting
PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — A congregation gathered Saturday to remember the life of a man who was gunned down while working at a gas station in Philadelphia.
It happened on January 17th at the Exxon on block 7100 of Torresdale Avenue in the city’s Tacony area.
Police say three masked men entered the gas station’s convenience store and broke into the staff side of the counter.
A 66-year-old employee, identified as Patro Siboram, was shot dead.
The three suspects were identified as Chihean, aka Chiheam Jones, 38, Robert Miller-Crafter, 25, and Keyon Vincent, 21.
All three male suspects are charged with murder, robbery and other related offenses.
On Saturday, family and friends gathered to commemorate Siboram.
“He was a nice guy, I mean, I would come in and talk to him about sports, news, anything in the community,” said Greg Bucceroni, a friend.

“When I first met him, I was so surprised. I was so surprised how can one person be so positive you know?” Pradeep Mohapatra added.
Siboram leaves behind a wife and son.
The Exxon gas station manager says they will add security gates and implement window service only during certain hours after the murder.
