Police say two robbers held up two men and shot and killed one of them in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia early Thursday morning.

The incident happened just before 1:00 a.m. on the 2000 block of Castor Avenue.

According to Officials, the two victims, both 24-years-old, were told by the suspects to "give it up" but they only handed over a pack of cigarettes.

The suspects became angry and then opened fire causing the two men to run into a house where one of them lived.

The gunman kept firing, spraying the front of the house with bullets.

One of the victims was shot in the chest and pronounced dead at the hospital. The other victim was shot in the leg and is listed in stable condition.

Police have made no arrests but are reviewing the eight private surveillance cameras that were in the area for descriptions.
