Dad of 7 Found Killed in Ambush Shooting on His Front Lawn: Police

A Pennsylvania man is dead and police say he was shot execution-style at his own residence after someone waited in a sedan for him to emerge.

According to CBS Philadelphia, the incident happened a little before 1 a.m. on Monday, outside of a home on Washington Lane in Germantown. The victim, identified as a 37-year-old SEPTA manager, was found deceased on his front lawn.

Witnesses reportedly said that someone in a black Sedan was spotted parked outside of the victim’s residence, waiting for him to come outside. When the victim emerged, the shooter fired around 15 shots at him.

“Witness statements indicate the rate of volume of fire from the handgun was in such a rapid succession that it sounded like a machine gun,” Captain Anthony Ginaldi with the Philadelphia police said.

“That brings us concern that this weapon may have been modified with the automatic sear on the back to produce that type of machine pistol.”

The victim’s name has not yet been released. Investigators are looking at footage of the morning in question, captured by the victim’s Ring camera.

No suspects have been arrested at this time, according to ABC 7.

This is a developing story and will be updated as additional information becomes available.
