Philadelphia police are searching for a suspect in connection with the murder of an 88-year-old veteran who was shot and killed in broad daylight while he was sitting inside his car earlier this month.

The shooting happened on March 5 at about 1:35 p.m. in the 100 block of North Dewey Street, police said in a news release.

The victim, Richard Butler, was sitting inside his SUV when a suspect approached the vehicle and fired a gun multiple times, striking the victim twice in the chest, according to FOX 29 Philadelphia. 

Butler later died from his injuries.

The silver Altima used by the shooter with a getaway driver was captured on surveillance under the EL along Market Street in West Philadelphia.
