A young man has died after police say he was shot dead near his home in the Hunting Park neighborhood of Philadelphia.

Police and medics were called to the scene on the 1300 block of West Hunting Park Avenue around 3:30 a.m. Friday morning with reports of a body in the street.

When officers arrived, they found a 21-year-old man lying unconscious between two parked cars.

The victim was found to have sustained a single gunshot wound to the shoulder and was pronounced dead at the scene.
