Man shot during altercation at post-funeral gathering in Ardmore; suspect wanted

ARDMORE, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- A search is underway for a suspect after a man was shot during a post-funeral gathering in Ardmore, Delaware County on Thursday afternoon.

Haverford Township Police Chief John Viola said a fight broke out between two families at a social hall on the 2600 block of East County Line Road.

During the fight, police said video shows the gunman walk up and shoot a man in the groin before fleeing.

Video captures the suspect wanted for shooting a man during a post-funeral gathering in Ardmore, Pa., on October 22, 2020.

"The video shows the male sitting there, watching, and he starts moving around and you see him reach in. He gets up and he walks over, reaches over and fires one, two shots," said Viola.

Neighbor Soleil Bacho, holding her young daughter in her arms, said she heard gunshots from her backyard.

"And all of a sudden, people were screaming and running. I grabbed my daughter, she was in the middle of a nap and took her downstairs and called the cops," Bacho said.

Chopper 6 was over the scene as police cordoned off the block.

Chief Viola said the male suspect is from Philadelphia and they know his identity. Now, he said, it's just a matter of finding him.
