HOMICIDE investigators are probing a shooting that left a 30-year-old man dead in Frankford on Thursday night.
Police were called to Josephine Street, a dark, desolate stretch of an alley off Orthodox Street near Torresdale Avenue, at 10:17 p.m.
When they arrived, they found the victim, whose name has yet to be released, suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.
Medics pronounced him dead on the sidewalk in the weeded alley. His body was splayed under a white sheet next to a pickup truck that was loaded down with trash bags.
Crime scene investigators combed the scene for evidence, bathed in the yellow glow of nearby street lights.
