A man was shot in the chest early yesterday morning outside a bar in Frankford.

The 29-year-old had left the bar he was in at Torresdale Avenue and Margaret Street, and was returning to it from his car when a second man emerged from the establishment and shot him shortly after midnight. The victim died at the scene, and the suspect fled in the passenger side of a gold car. Neither man has been identified.
