A man was shot Thanksgiving morning inside of the Blue Moon hotel in West Philadelphia, police said. He later died from his injuries.

Police responded to the shooting at the rear of the hotel on Westminster Avenue near 51st Street at 10:41 a.m. where officers found a 33 year-old man suffering from gunshot wounds to his groin and back, said Police Sgt. Tim Cooney.

The man was rushed to the hospital of the University of Pennsylvania where he was pronounced dead at 11:11 a.m. Cooney said the shooting may have been the result of an argument over drug money.

No arrests have been made and police are withholding the identity of the victim pending family notification.
