2 found fatally shot inside store in Philadelphia's Tioga section

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police are investigating after two people were found dead inside a store in the city's Tioga section on Thursday afternoon.

According to police, a passerby found the two bodies at about 1 p.m. inside the Al Madinah Traders store on the 3600 block of Germantown Avenue.

Police said the victims, a man in his 40s, who was shot twice in the face and a second man, who was shot once in the head, were pronounced dead on the scene.



Long-time friends of the two men have identified the victims as Eric and Roy, both of Philadelphia.

"He was just talking about he wanted a son. He wanted to son before he died. He wanted a little boy to carry on his legacy, that's not gonna happen now," said Johnny Green, who lives nearby.

"If I'm thinking about Roy, I could not imagine because Roy is a very nice polite guy, soft. Anyone ask him for anything he'll give it to you. He's not gonna fight or argue," said Elias Munna, who lives in Tigoa.

No arrests have been made, authorities said.

Anyone with any information is asked to call police at 215-686-TIPS.
