The Philadelphia Police Department’s Northwest Detectives Division is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect for a shooting that injured three males 19-22 years-of-age in West Oak Lane.
On March 19, 2013, at 10:34pm, an unknown male approached the Chinese Food store located at 6600 North 18th Street armed with a handgun.
