A man is dead tonight after being shot during an apparent robbery in West Philadelphia, police said.
Homicide Unit investigators are currently questioning three men as persons of interest in the slaying, which is being treated as an ongoing investigation, Chief Inspector Scott Small said.
About 9:30 p.m., officers found a 29-year-old man shot twice in torso and leg on Market Street near 59th, Small said.
He was taken to the Hospital of University of Pennsylvania, where he was pronounced dead about a half-hour later. While en route to HUP, the man told police that he had been approached by three men, who robbed and shot him before fleeing the scene in a white minivan, Small said.
