Man shot and killed in Overbook home

OVERBROOK (WPVI) -- A man was shot and killed inside his own home in the Overbrook section of Philadelphia, police say.

It happened around 8:30 p.m. Monday on the 6000 block of Oxford Street.

Police found a 27-year-old man in the basement of the home shot several times.

The victim was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

"When family members were upstairs, that's when they heard the gunshots from the basement. They didn't realize at the time anybody was even in the basement with their family member," Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

Detectives are interviewing several family members.

No arrests have been made.
