PHILADELPHIA — Police are seeking a suspect considered armed and dangerous in a shooting last week in southwest Philadelphia that killed one man and injured three others.

Officials said a woman and her children’s father got into a physical fight Thursday, and she and four relatives later went to the man’s home that evening.

Investigators say a fight ensued at about 9:30 p.m. Thursday and the man pulled a gun and opened fire, hitting all four men, before fleeing.

A 23-year-old man was pronounced dead at about 4 a.m. Friday. A 22-year-old man was listed in critical condition, while another 22-year-old man and a 32-year-old man were listed as stable.

Police said Sunday that 21-year-old Jabir Kennedy was being sought on charges of murder, three counts of attempted murder and related offenses.
