The Thanksgiving shooting happened on the 6100 block of City Avenue at The Premier at City Line.
PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A suspect was shot and killed by a resident after allegedly forcing his way into a Philadelphia apartment on Thanksgiving.
It happened around 7:20 p.m. Thursday on the 6100 block of City Avenue at The Premier at City Line in Overbrook.
Police say the male suspect was in his 20s.
He suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Two firearms were recovered at the scene, according to police.
Residents coming back from Thanksgiving plans thought it was strange to see the front door of the building propped open. They also received an email from property managers saying they were working with authorities regarding an unfortunate situation.
"I thought maybe somebody got through the door but not somebody's apartment -- that's frightening," said Keenan Walker who lives inside the apartment complex.
It's still unclear if the homeowner is facing any charges.
