A Pennsylvania man was charged with the shooting death of a New Jersey man following an argument over a parking space outside Pat’s King of Steaks in Philadelphia, according to police.
Paul Burkert, 36, of Reading, reportedly shot and killed David Padro, 23, of Camden, New Jersey, around 1 a.m. July 22.
The two reportedly got into an argument over a parking space, which escalated into violence. Initial reports suggested the two men were beefing over the infamous Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants rivalry from the NFL.
Police said Burkert shot Padro in the lower back and fled the scene. He later turned himself in to National Park Police at Independence Mall, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Padro was pronounced dead about a 30 minutes later at Jefferson University Hospital, according to the Associated Press.
Burkert was charged with murder, reckless endangering, evidence-tampering, conspiracy and weapons offenses.
