Philadelphia Police are asking for help in solving a baffling overnight execution in Nicetown. 43-year-old David Atkins answered the door of his home at 1639 Staub Street around 3:00 this morning. A man shot him to death, execution style.

David Atkins was a single father, a widower, who worked two jobs as a security guard at Temple University and the Spectrum.

Police have no idea why someone would target him.
