Detectives released video Thursday in an attempt to identify a man who shot and killed a teenager a couple weeks ago in Germantown.

In the surveillance clip, the gunman encounters the victim, a 19-year-old man, inside a gas station, and, as the teen leaves the store, the suspect shoots him in the doorway, following up to fire multiple shots at point-blank range.

Investigators said the men exchanged heated words inside the station. The incident occurred just before 11:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 21, at 100 W. Queen Lane. The victim was also armed, according to police.

Authorities described the suspect as a Black man between the ages of 20 and 30 with a medium build and complexion.

She was shot once in the left side of her chest just before 2 p.m. inside a property on the 400 block of N. Felton Street, police said. She died a short time later at Penn Presbyopia Medical Center.

No arrests have been made, and there was no word on a motive in the killing.

Investigators are searching for a gunman who shot a man outside a West Philadelphia corner store last month, as well a woman who fled the scene with him.

She spoke to the victim, a 40-year-old man who is still in critical condition, inside the store, at 55th and Wyalusing streets. Then, on the corner, she appeared to be talking with him as the suspect crossed the street, pulled out a small, black revolver and fired several shots.

The pair fled the scene following the shooting, which happened at around 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 22, authorities said.

Detectives described the suspect as a Black man with a medium build and complexion.
