Police are investigating the murder of a 20-year-old man who was shot to death on a street corner in Kingsessing early Friday afternoon.

The victim was on Regent Street near 55th shortly after noon when someone shot him several times in the upper torso and head, a police spokeswoman said. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 12:17 p.m.
