The victim, 47-year-old David B. Porter Sr., was shot in the back on Natural Bridge Road near Pine Grove Avenue. He was seriously injured.

The incident occurred when Porter had refused to buy beer for Blue, and when Porter left the store, Blue was waiting for him and confronted him. Porter also refused to hand over his wallet, police said.

That is when Blue opened fire. Blue’s friend grabbed the wallet and they fled from the seen.
