Police have released photos of two men they say are suspected in the Thanksgiving Day slaying of a Port Richmond man.

Ryan Kelly, 21, went to the Aramingo Avenue Wawa for a snack at 5 a.m. Thanksgiving morning when police say he was gunned down by two robbers. The Daily News reports Kelly’s mother saw one man jump into a white Mazda 6, while the other pointed a gun at her. The cops found the car, which they believe was stolen earlier that night, abandoned two days later.

Philadelphia Police have released surveillance stills from a TD Bank, where police said the suspects unsuccessfully attempted to use a debit card obtained in an earlier robbery that evening.
