Police in Delaware County are on the hunt for a gunman responsible for murdering a man in broad daylight in Chester City.

Police tell us they responded to the 600 block of West 9th Street Thursday morning just after 9 a.m. for reports of a shooting.

When they arrived, they found a 48-year-old man wounded by gunfire. The victim was transported to Crozer-Chester Medical Center in serious condition but was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.
