One person was killed and another was injured Sunday after a man opened fire inside a Philadelphia homeless shelter after getting evicted, authorities said.
Police are on the hunt for the gunman who they say returned to the Station House shelter in north Philadelphia on Sunday morning to retrieve his belongings after getting kicked out for being intoxicated on Friday, the Associated Press reports. He started shooting after he got into an argument with one employee. A worker in his 40s was killed and a 26-year-old man was shot in the hip and taken to a hospital, according to the AP.
The 32-year-old shooter was last seen wearing a green hoodie, a black skull cap and jeans. Authorities say he is armed and dangerous.
Station House is an “after hour intake site” that provides client service case management, a computer lab, and residential services for 99 men, according to the Office of Supportive Housing, which runs the shelter.
