Cops ID Germantown murder victim

Police have released the identity of the man shot to death outside a home in Germantown last night.

Kahlil Goldman, 24, of Alden Street near Girard Avenue in West Philadelphia, was shot five times on the quiet, residential stretch of Pulaski Avenue near Logan Street, police spokeswoman Officer Leeloni Palmiero said.

Goldman was struck in his chest, upper torso and neck, and was pronounced dead at Temple University Hospital not long after the shooting, Chief Inspector Scott Small said at the scene.

No information on a motive or arrest is available, Palmiero said.

Small described Goldman as "no stranger to police" last night, and court records show he pleaded guilty to drug charges in 2008.
