A 36-year-old Pennsylvania man is now facing a murder charge Friday after being identified as the gunman accused of shooting and killing another man outside of the iconic Pat’s Steaks restaurant in Philadelphia early yesterday morning.
Paul Burkert, of Reading, is also facing charges of conspiracy and tampering with evidence in the death of David Padro, a 23-year-old from Camden, N.J., police told Fox News.
Tom Francano, general manager of Pat’s Steaks, told the Philadelphia Inquirer that the two men had been arguing partly over football prior to the shooting – and that one of them was an Eagles fan, while the other supported a New York team.
