Police revealed that a FedEx driver involved in a shooting had a legally registered firearm.
The incident began when the 32-year-old driver was delivering a package to a home located on the 600 block of Unruh Avenue. An armed robber approached him and then stole his wallet and keys before shooting him, Philadelphia Police Department Capt. Jason Smith stated. The driver returned fire, striking 27 year old Jevan Lundy severely.
Lundy was later found by police on the 1400 block of Creston Street, unresponsive. He was declared dead at Einstein Medical Center shortly after his arrival. Officers recovered the victim’s FedEx ID card from the scene.
A second man was found with Lundy, and the vehicle searched. Police believe the car was used to transport Lundy from the scene of the shooting. The man was taken in for questioning, but it was unclear whether he was facing any charges. “He is speaking to us, of course not portraying that he had any involvement with this robbery,” stated Smith.
