Police say the victims, a 36-year-old man and a 30-year-old man, got onto the westbound SEPTA El at 15th and Market streets around 10:40 p.m.
While on the train, an argument erupted. Investigators say the victims were fans of the Chicago Bulls and were celebrating the team’s victory.
Lieutenant John Walker from West Detectives told Action News on Thursday, “It escalates when the young males began to use profanity. The -year-old says, ‘listen man, this train is filled with people – there’s young kids, there’s ladies on here. You need to watch your mouth, young boy.'”
At about one minute into the surveillance video, the train stops at 46th and Market Street and the Early brothers exit onto the platform.
Surveillance cameras were rolling as one of the brothers, identified by police as Matthew Early, turned around, pulled out a gun, and fired.
Guess the shooter got his man card reissued.
