The New York Police Department and the Philadelphia Police Department announced on Friday that the shooting of a Parking Authority officer in Philadelphia the day after Thanksgiving may be connected to a shooting of a gas station attendant in the Bronx on Nov. 22.
The departments released surveillance footage that showed a suspect in both incidents who had a similar build and was dressed the same.
On Nov. 22, a Bronx gas station employee was shot in the head by a suspect after he opened an unlocked door to his storefront on Boston Road around 7 p.m. for what he believed was a customer.
The 59-year-old victim was rushed to a hospital in critical condition.

No arrests have been made, and the departments said they are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect.
The suspect is described at a Black man with a medium build who was wearing a blue hooded jacket, blue or black ski mask, gray pants, black boots and black gloves. He had a silver revolver and should be considered armed and dangerous.
