Mayor Nutter, Police appeal to public for help in solving September triple homicide

    Alongside Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey and First Deputy Commissioner Richard Ross Jr., Mayor Michael Nutter asked the public for help in solving a September triple homicide Sunday.

    The group was joined by grieving family members of the victims from the September 6 shooting outside the Lorena’s Grocery Store Sunday afternoon.

    Police say two men entered the North 50th grocery store at 7:56 p.m. on September 6 armed with handguns and demanding money. Police say during the robbery, the suspects shot three employees multiple times, killing all of them.

    Police have identified the victims as Porfirio Nunez, Johana ‘Carmen’ Nunez and Lina Sanchez.

    In surveillance video released by police, two men can be seen walking on 50th Street.

    Today, the city and family members of the victims continued their appeal to the public, asking for assistance and information in the case.
