The Philadelphia Police Department is asking for the public's assistance in identifying two suspects who shot a 38 year-old male in Hunting Park.
The incident occurred on September 5, 2013, at midnight, outside of the Ho May Chinese Restaurant, located on the 4400 block of North 5th Street. Police say the victim was assaulted when he sat inside his vehicle. He was shot one time in his left thigh.
Surveillance video was recovered from the area that shows two unknown male suspects approaching the victim's vehicle. Surveillance also captured an unknown female that was sitting inside the restaurant just prior to the shooting, was outside at the time of the shooting. It is unclear at this time if this female was involved with this shooting, says police. She is wanted for questioning at this time.
