An arrest warrant has been issued for a Philadelphia man already on parole for murder who is believed to be responsible for the shooting death of a patron outside of an Upper Darby bar early yesterday morning, police said.
Upper Darby Police believe John Gordon, 37, of Bellford Street near Buist Avenue in Southwest Philadelphia, shot and killed Randy Campbell, 23, outside of the Venue bar on Garrett Road around 2:40 a.m. after the two got in to a fight in the bathroom of the establishment, police said.
Gordon is on state parole until 2029 for a 1992 robbery and murder, police said. The exact circumstances of that case were not immediately clear.
Witnesses who were outside of the Venue bar Monday said before Gordon fired 13 bullets at the crowd he told them: "You need to get out of here, it's about to be a f***ing crime scene," according to court documents.
