Rasheed Gey, an 18-year-old man who allegedly shot and killed the son of a Philadelphia Police officer, was arrested Friday, police said.

Around 1:40 p.m. on Feb. 6, police responded reports of a shooting on Hunter Street near 55th in the Overbrook section of West Philadelphia.

When police arrived, they found Dennis Gore Jr., 24, lying face down on the pavement.

Police said Gey approached Gore — who was walking with his girlfriend at the time — and fired five shots at Gore at point blank range.

Gey said nothing to Gore or his girlfriend before he fired the shots, and and homicide detectives Friday said they were unsure of Gey's motive.

Gore, a father of two, was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and pronounced dead.

Gey, of Stewart Street near 56th in Overbrook, faces charges of murder, reckless endangerment and weapons offenses, police said.

He lives about three blocks away from the scene of the shooting.

Gey was awaiting arraignment Friday night.
