Man Found Stabbed To Death in Parking Lot

According to Action News 6, a man was found stabbed in the Wawa parking lot located at 1602-04 S Delaware Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19148.

At approximately 4:25 a.m on Monday, February 14, 2022, a 50-year-old man was found injured in his vehicle. Police had to break the back window to gain access to the victim, who had suffered multiple stab wounds in his abdomen. He was rushed to a nearby hospital but pronounced dead after arrival. 

Police are trying to piece together the events but know that he entered the store to purchase food just before 2 a.m. He proceeded to eat in his vehicle. Although an Uber sticker was found on his front window, the company stated that his last ride was days earlier, on Friday, and not in South Philadelphia. 

Nearby residents expressed concern as this was not the first fatal incident. In October, a man was shot and killed in the same parking lot.

Filing Lawsuits For Families of Fatal Convenience Store Stabbing Victims 

Legal Herald contributor and experienced stabbing victim attorney Brian Kent helps the surviving family members of victims killed during a violent crime seek justice. Recently, Brian shared details on how families of victims killed in gas station stabbings can recover compensation by filing lawsuits. 

"Commercial property owners, such as convenience stores, have a legal responsibility to provide safety for their customers and employees on their property. Many convenient stores are open around the clock to offer a quick shopping stop for many traveling or working late. These property owners should provide adequate security measures to reduce the risks of dangers. Some common examples of security measures include surveillance cameras and ample lighting around the property. If a property owner neglects the security of the property, they can be deemed negligent by a court of law."

"If a stabbing occurs in the parking lot of the convenience store, victims or their families may inquire if there was adequate security. If a victim's lawyer can prove negligent security could have allowed the injury or death, the property owner may be liable."

"If the crime was foreseeable, the family may have grounds to file a civil lawsuit. If the owner was aware of an increase in violence in the area but failed to increase the security measures, the crime could be foreseeable. Victims of the surviving family members of those fatally stabbed are urged to secure the services of an experienced stabbing victim attorney to determine if they have grounds to file a lawsuit."
