Philadelphia Police released video of a suspect in the Oct. 25 fatal shootings in North Philly at the intersections of Reese and Pike Streets and Fairhill and Pike Streets. Authorities are looking for a Hispanic man in his mid-20s to early 30s.

The Philadelphia Police released surveillance video footage of a suspect in a double shooting last month in North Philadelphia. The incident occurred on Oct. 25 at the intersections of Reese and Pike Streets and Fairhill and Pike Streets around 12:57 a.m.

The suspect is described to be between 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-10, with a slender build, and may be in the area of 4000 N. Reese Street often, police said. The man was wearing a blue vest with a white long-sleeve shirt underneath, dark pants and white sandals.

Two men, aged 42 and 35, were fatally shot in the head, torso, and chest, found bleeding less than one block from each other near Pike and Reese streets just before 1:00 a.m. One victim was shot eight times, the other four times.

Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said that it appeared that the men were shot execution style. It is not known if the men knew each other and if the incidents were isolated.
