Surveillance cameras inside and outside of the bar on the 300 block of West Chelten Avenue provided investigators with multiple views of the shooter.

“You can actually see the shooting and robbery inside of the bar and some of the exterior cameras recorded the perpetrator fleeing on foot eastbound,” Small said.

Police describe the suspect as a light-skinned black or Hispanic man in his 20’s, 5’8 to 5’10, with a thin to medium build. They say he had a distinctive goatee that was long enough to braid and was wearing dark colored clothing and sneakers.
