Man shot outside peace concert at Dell Music Center dies

The man shot outside a peace concert at the Dell Music Center on Wednesday has died.

The 20-year-old man died overnight after having been shot in the Strawberry Mansion center's parking lot at about 8:30 p.m., according to the Philadelphia police homicide unit.

Police say an argument sparked the shooting near the anti-violence concert, called "Philly Support Philly: Peace on the Streets." The victim was shot in his abdomen and thigh and taken to Temple University Hospital.

No arrests have been made.

The gunman was described last night as being in his teens and fleeing in a white vehicle, thought to be a Chevrolet Impala. Police said they had no additional information this morning about the suspect.

It wasn't immediately known what the argument was about.

About 600 people were attending Wednesday night's concert at the Fairmount Park center, located near 33rd and Huntingdon streets.
