1 dead, 1 critical after birthday celebration in Kensington

FISHTOWN - October 27, 2013

Police tell Action News that several party goers had gathered at The Liquid Room, a newly opened nightclub located in the 1300 block of North 2nd Street, for a woman's birthday.

The woman left the club with two of her male friends shortly before 2:00 Sunday morning. The trio got into a Dodge Magnum parked in the 200 block of West Master Street - the two men in the front seats and the woman in the rear of the vehicle.

Then as the car was driving west on Master Street a male opened fire on the car. The vehicle traveled several feet before coming to rest on the steps of a nearby building.

Police say at least 14 shell casings were found at the scene.

The 28-year-old driver was shot twice in the head and was pronounced dead at the scene. The 43-year-old front seat passenger was shot multiple times and is currently in critical condition at Hahnemann University Hospital. The woman in the back seat was not injured.

So far, police have not made any arrests.
