April 18, 1994

A 40-year-old man was shot to death yesterday evening in the 200 block of N. Franklintown Road while apparently walking home from work, police said.

Witnesses told police they saw the victim, Spencer Thomas of the 2600 block of W. Franklin St., being robbed by a gunman around 6:30 p.m. near the intersection of North Franklintown Road and West Fairmount Avenue.

After the gunman removed unknown property from Mr. Thomas' pocket, he fired at least three shots, hitting the man once in the chest and twice in the head, witnesses reported to police.

The gunman fled shortly before Southwestern District police arrived. Mr. Thomas was pronounced dead at the scene.
