The final moments of a Temple University graduate before he was fatally shot near Drexel University were captured on video.
Everett Beauregard, 23, was returning home from a night out with friends at a bar in South Philadelphia just before 12:30 On Thursday, when he was shot in the neck, Philadelphia Police Captain Jason Smith said at a press conference Friday.
The fatal encounter surveillance footage, published by the Homicide Division, shows the suspect walking down the street before Beauregard passes by, and the first to turn around and shoot the victim from behind. The suspect was still firing his gun as he ran away.
At the time of the m*rder, the shooter was wearing a black hoodie with a long zipper in the front, black pants, and a pale face mask.
“Mr. Beauregard’s life was cut short tragically by this horrific act of violence, and for no apparent reason. It was not an attempted robbery as we initially thought, ”Smith said. “It wasn’t an argument. … Not a word between them was spoken before the perpetrator turned and shot Mr. Beauregard in the back.
Noting that the victim, who worked for Wells Fargo and was preparing to earn a master’s degree, was “not part of the gang” and “not involved in drug trafficking,” Smith said that Beauregard was “by all accounts … a good person who lives his life ”.
Smith told the public that a reward of $ 20,000 is being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the killer.
