Philadelphia police are investigating a fatal shooting in Feltonville.

It happened around 8:40 p.m. Tuesday along the 500 block of West Luray Street.

Police tell Action News that as the 33-year-old victim was lying on the ground, the shooters then stole everything in his pockets.

The victim had been shot in the arm and chest.

Once police got to the scene, they rushed the man to Temple University Hospital. He was taken into surgery, but later died from his injuries.

Police say someone's identification was found at the scene. It was not the victim's, and police are checking to see if it was one of the suspects.

The identification belongs to a person in West Philadelphia, and the victim lives outside of the city.


Police say the suspects fled the scene heading west in a white vehicle.

Investigators are hoping the surveillance cameras in the area can lead to the gunmen.
