Man slain in N.E. bar 4 months after dad was murdered

A triple shooting left one man dead in Northeast Philadelphia earlier today.

Police spokeswoman Officer Jillian Russell said gunfire rang out inside the Irish Kitchen, a bar on Pratt Street near Oakland, at about 1:30 a.m.

Dallas Custalow, 25, of Anchor Street near Saul, was wounded once in the back. He died a short while later at Temple University Hospital, Russell said.

A 20-year-old man was shot once in the head, and was listed in critical condition at Albert Einstein Medical Center. A 30-year-old man who was wounded once in the leg was in stable condition at Hahnemann University Hospital.
Russell said police had no suspects in the bar shooting.

In a strange twist of fate, today marked the second time that tragedy fell upon the Custalow family. On Feb. 23, Custalow’s father, also named Dallas Custalow, died after a violent attack.

Police charged a neighbor on Anchor Street, Michael Bocchinfuso, 44, with using a shovel and trash can to bludgeon the elder Custalow, 71.
