A 29-year-old man parked at a gas station was ambushed and carjacked at gunpoint by four masked men, according to Philadelphia police.
The masked shooter swarmed the victim, followed him into a gas station convenience store, and drove off, police said, and the entire incident was caught on camera.
Police say the incident occurred around 10 p.m. Saturday at the Sunoko gas station on Block 5900 of Wissahickon Avenue in Germantown.
A white transit van pulled up at a gas station and waited in front of the victim’s red 2022 Chrysler 300 for the gas pump to empty.
As the victim emerged from the store, four masked men jumped out of the van and robbed him, according to a video released by Philadelphia police. One of them jumped from the trunk onto the Chrysler’s hood.
Police said the men were carrying two assault rifles and two handguns.
A 29-year-old man returned to the minimart for help as the man chased him.
The group then returned to their car. One of them is seen on video driving the victim’s car down Wissahickon Avenue. The remaining three of him return to the van and head north to Wissahickon Avenue.
