Argument sparks fatal shooting in South Philly

An argument over a woman led one man to shoot another to death in Point Breeze early today.

The dispute erupted just after midnight, when a 20-year-old man got in a dispute with his sister's live-in boyfriend at 21st and Morris streets, police spokeswoman Officer Tanya Little said. The boyfriend shot the brother once in the head and then fled, Little said. The brother died at the Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania at 12:45 a.m., she added. Police know the identity of the suspected gunman and are scrambling to find and arrest him now.
