Man shot outside peace concert at Dell dies

Posted: August 16, 2014

Police have identified the 20-year-old man killed outside a concert to promote peace at the Dell Music Center on Wednesday night.

Alexis Guevara of Frankford was outside the venue at 8:37 p.m. when he was shot twice by an unknown man, Lt. Norman Davenport said. He was pronounced dead the next morning at 10:18.

The concert venue was hosting a show called "Philly Support Philly: Peace on the Streets."

It was unclear whether Guevara had been attending the show, police said.

Davenport said police hadn't yet determined a motive in the shooting.

"The concert is for peace, and for this to happen, it's a slap in the face to everyone," he said, adding that detectives were going to work "around the clock" to solve the case.
