Murdered man's family seeks the public's help to identify suspects. Rick Williams reports during Action News at 10:30 p.m. on September 15, 2018.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The family of a murder victim wants you to take a good look at some surveillance video to see if you can help identify the killer.

Marvin Stokes speaks honestly about his nephew, Brandon Baylor.

"He was a good dude, he was a really good dude. I mean he hung around some people that probably shouldn't have hung around with but he was a good dude," said Stokes.

Just after 4 p.m. on Monday, November 14, 2016, police were called to a shooting along the 1900 block of North 25th Street in North Philadelphia.

When they arrived they found Baylor suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

The 28-year-old died at the hospital.

"What happened to him shouldn't have happened to him," said Stokes.

Police have released surveillance video of the suspects.

The shooter is described as a tall thin, black male, wearing a black knit hat, distinct red down jacket with blue shoulders and sleeves, blue jeans and athletic type shoes.

The second suspect is described as similar height to the shooter, also a black male, slightly bigger build wearing a black knit hat, grey hooded sweatshirt, black pants, and black boots


The suspects fled the scene in a black colored 4-door vehicle, possibly a Ford Escort.

"All the pieces are there just nobody put them together yet, but like I say before everybody gotta answer for what they did and they are going to answer for what they did," said Stokes.

The City of Philadelphia is offering up to $20,000 in reward money, and the Citizens Crime Commission is administering another $10,000 for the arrest and conviction of the person responsible.

All you have to do is call 215-546-TIPS.

All calls will remain anonymous.
