Man Shoots and Kills Panhandler In Northeast Philadelphia

Police say that a male offender has shot and killed a male victim tonight at Rhawn and the Boulevard. Authorities say that a female and her male companion were on the corner panhandling when they got into an argument. The woman told police that the male driver was insulting her so her companion of 17-years tried to defend her by using a can of hornet spray. That’s when police say the offender responded by shooting and killing the 54-year-old victim.


The offender fled the area in a white jeep. No arrests have been made and no weapons have been recovered.
