Fatal Shooting Leads to North Philly Rowhome Collapse
A fatal shooting led to the partial collapse of a North Philadelphia rowhome sometime before midnight, police said. The shooting and collapse took place on the 1600 block of Seybert Street near Girard College.
Cops say the victim was sitting in the driver’s seat of a late-model Hyundai when someone fired multiple times. Attempting to get away, the victim apparently flung his car into reverse, crashing into the vacant rowhome. It collapsed, burying the man under rubble.
