Woman’s ex shot by boyfriend after breaking into their home (VIDEO)

A man is dead after he broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home in West Philadelphia and confronted her current boyfriend.

Police say the ex-boyfriend broke into the home around midnight Monday. Once inside, he confronted the woman’s new boyfriend in the kitchen. An argument ensued between the two men and at some point, the new boyfriend shot the ex-boyfriend.

The former boyfriend, who police say was armed, was shot a total of three times – twice in the head and once in the arm. His name has not been released, but he was 24-years-old.

For reasons which are not known at this time, the boyfriend then left the home, but responding officers located him a short time later.

The woman’s two young children were home at the time, but were not injured. They were both upstairs asleep during the confrontation.
