One man is dead and another one is in custody after a senseless shooting outside the iconic Pat’s King of Steaks in South Philadelphia.
Police said two men got into an argument while waiting in line for food. According to Pat’s general manager Tom Francano, the two men were fighting in part about football — one was an Eagles fan, and one was a New York fan.
“They were arguing and it turned into a fight,” Francano said. “One guy grabbed the other guy and got him in a grip, and the other guy pulled out a gun and shot him in the torso. It was one shot. The cops came right away.”
The shooter fled the scene but would later return to get arrested for what he did.
“All I heard was ‘pop,’ and all I saw was everybody running,” one witness told NBC10.
The gunman left the 23-year-old gunshot victim bleeding on the ground, police said. He would be rushed to the hospital where he later died.
Pat’s Steaks was closed for a few hours while police investigated.
