Philadelphia police seek shooters in 2 killings Wednesday

Philadelphia police are looking for suspects in separate shootings that left two mean dead on Wednesday.

Around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, police arrived on the 3000 block of Diamond Street to find Carl Rice, 57, of the 3100 block of Diamond Street, in a Cadillac with a gunshot wound to the neck. Rice was taken to Temple University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to police.

Later Wednesday, around 5:30 p.m., police were called to the 5100 block of Pennway Street. There, Dyshon Garner, 25, of the 700 block of Jericho Street, had been shot four times in the back and shoulders, according to police.

Police said Garner had just purchased a water ice when a man approached and at close range fired seven shots, four of which hit Garner. A motive was not known Thursday morning, but Chief Inspector Scott Small said, “This clearly appears to be an execution-type homicide.”

Garner, too, was transported to Temple University Hospital and pronounced dead, according to police.

Police had no suspect descriptions in either shooting as of Thursday morning and said both investigations were ongoing.
