Philadelphia homicide detectives this morning are investigating a shooting death last night in the city’s Germantown section.
Police were called to the 6300 block of W. Germantown Avenue about 9 p.m. for a report of a person with a gun.

When officers arrived, they found Lamont Watts, 43, on the street, suffering multiple gunshot wounds.
Watts, who lived nearby, was rushed by police to Albert Einstein Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 10:12 p.m., said a police spokeswoman.

Investigators, who were looking for the shooter, believe an argument may have preceded the shooting.
