A newlywed says she was waiting for her husband to come home not knowing he was shot near their home in North Philadelphia.

He died hours later, and now, more than a year later, his widow is asking for help to find his killer.

Manuel Alfonso Andrades's widow, Juana Sandoval, spoke to Action News about her husband through a translator.

"He was a good person. Everyone knew him," said Juana Sandoval.

Sandoval says October 2, 2015, was just like every other work day.

At 7 p.m. she was at home with her brother-in-law along the 2100 block of Master Street in North Philadelphia.

"Like every day I was waiting for him. I had his dinner waiting," said Sandoval.

Sandoval says she heard a shot, and then banging on her door.

"It was him at the door. He was shot," said Sandoval.

The 36-year-old had been shot in the stomach.

He was rushed to the hospital where he died a few hours later.

"They didn't steal anything from him so they are still clueless as to why it happened," said Sandoval.

The City of Philadelphia is offering up to $20,000 in reward money for the arrest and conviction of the person responsible.
