The purpose of the concert at the Dell Music Center was to get the message out to stem violence.


Officials said the 20-year-old man was apparently either arriving at or leaving the “Philly Support Philly: Peace on the Streets” concert when he got into an argument with someone in the parking lot.

Police said the shooter opened fire, striking the victim twice. He was rushed to Temple University Hospital, where authorities said he was pronounced dead at about 2:15 a.m. Thursday.

No arrests have been made. Police said they are checking surveillance video.
