Suspect in shooting of Philadelphia parking officer may be connected to Bronx gas station shooting: Police

The New York Police Department and the Philadelphia Police Department announced on Friday that the shooting of a Parking Authority officer in Philadelphia the day after Thanksgiving may be connected to a shooting of a gas station attendant in the Bronx on Nov. 22. 

The departments released surveillance footage that showed a suspect in both incidents who had a similar build and was dressed the same. 

On Nov. 22, a Bronx gas station employee was shot in the head by a suspect after he opened an unlocked door to his storefront on Boston Road around 7 p.m. for what he believed was a customer. 

The 59-year-old victim was rushed to a hospital in critical condition.
