One of the latest murder investigations involves the killing of 24-year-old Ebony Kitchen.
She was shot and killed along the 5800 block of Rising Sun Avenue in Lawncrest.
Police said she was arguing with a male and female around 11 p.m. Monday when a gunman who was not involved walked up and shot her to death.
“About two minutes before being shot and killed, she was involved in a physical altercation with a female and a male. Then about two minutes later, another male who was not involved in the initial altercation walked up, and he clearly points a gun at her head, face-area, and fires from just a few feet away,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.
Police said business surveillance systems and real-time crime cameras captured what happened.
