Philadelphia Police Release Video Of Shooting Of Bulls Fan
PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — Philadelphia police have released surveillance video showing the shooting of a Chicago Bulls fan after a confrontation with two other men on an elevated train.
The video shows two men leaving the elevated train before one turned and shot into the train car, wounding two people.
Authorities said the Wednesday night confrontation on the Market-Frankford line was sparked by a dispute over the Philadelphia 76ers’ loss to the Bulls earlier in the night.
Lt. John Walker said a Bulls fan quarreled with the two young men before being shot in the stomach. A second man who tried to calm things down was shot in the leg. Both victims were taken to a hospital for treatment and are expected to survive.
In the video, the faces of the two suspects are clearly shown. People on the train platform at 46th Street in West Philadelphia scatter after the shooter fires his handgun into the stopped train car.
Police asked the public’s help in identifying the suspects.
