Pair sought in Nicetown killing

Philadelphia Police

Investigators released surveillance video and images Tuesday showing two men wanted in connection with a fatal shooting that occurred last week in Nicetown.

Troy Berry, 33, who lived in Strawberry Mansion, died Thursday after the gunmen shot him multiple times at point-blank range at around 12:15 a.m. that morning on the 1900 block of Hunting Park Avenue.

A 37-year-old man was also injured in the shooting, sustaining a wound to his right wrist, according to authorities.

One of the suspects arrived in a dark-colored minivan driven by a man depicted in the police video as a “person of interest.” The other gunman showed up to the scene in a dark-colored sedan.

The city offers a $20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in a homicide case.

Anyone with knowledge of the suspects or the killing is asked to contact the Homicide Unit at 215-686-3334/3335; call or text 215-686-8477; or leave an anonymous tip at www.phillypolice.com/forms/submit-a-tip.
