Officers were called to the Kingsessing neighborhood in southwest Philadelphia early Tuesday on a report of an illegally parked vehicle—and they found a man in his 20s shot to death inside.
About two hours later, officers were called to northeast Philadelphia, where a man had been shot while walking in the Kensington neighborhood. He was later pronounced dead at Temple University hospital.
On Monday evening, police said a masked gunman followed a 21-year-old man into a north Philadelphia grocery store and shot him to death execution-style.
In all three cases, officers said they hoped surveillance video from cameras in the area would lead them to a suspect.
