PHILADELPHIA CREAM – Philadelphia authorities have released new video showing the fatal shooting of a teenage girl who police say was killed while walking a dog with another person over the weekend.
Investigators say Teryn Johnson, 17, was in the 5300 block of Harrock Street just before 9pm on Sunday evening when she was shot in the chest by an unknown gunman.
Investigators say officers from the Philadelphia Police Department drove Johnson to Temple University Hospital where she died a short time later.
Video shared by police on Wednesday shows the suspected shooter and a getaway car tracking the path of the victim before proceeding with the deadly shooting.
Investigators say the shooter and at least one other person inside a dark-colored Dodge Challenger waited on a street corner for at least two minutes while the victim and his friend drove by.
The shooter, dressed in dark clothing with an almost full head covering, eventually got out of the car and hid behind a parked van after the victims had passed.
Multi-angle montage of surveillance footage shows Challenger picking up the shooter and driving a short distance down the street where he exits the vehicle and shoots at least three times.
Authorities are offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
“It does appear that our deceased was specifically targeted,” Capt. Jason Smith of the Philadelphia Police Department told reporters at a Monday news conference.
Neighbors who rushed to Teryn’s aid said she had been shot at least seven times in the chest and side.
“It’s not right, they took my daughter away from me, no parent is supposed to outlive their child,” Paul Johnson, Teryn’s father, told FOX 29.
