A man was bludgeoned to death with a baseball bat in Philadelphia's Wissinoming neighborhood.
The victim, 31, was found slumped over inside a car.
"Preliminary information shows the male suffered from severe head trauma," said Philadelphia police Captain James Kimrey.
911 got the first call around 1:20 in the morning, from a person who was screaming, and then a second call about a person being beat with a baseball bat, according to Kimrey.
When rescue crews got to the scene in the 5900 block of Charles Street, they found the man's body in the driver's side of a blue Hyundai Tiburon. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police say four men fled the scene after the attack. They say the suspects were last seen inside a black car, possibly a Ford Crown Victoria, with tinted windows driving on Charles Street towards Benner Street.
