According to the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, 22-year-old Quayshon Glass was driving east on Baltimore Avenue in West Philly on May 6, 2021, when he sped past a man’s vehicle.
Glass is then said to have continued driving and crashed into a parked vehicle before fleeing on foot.
Authorities say the male victim spied on Glass in an attempt to exchange insurance information, but he was unsuccessful.
While the victim was on the phone with police after returning to the scene of the accident, authorities said Glass appeared with a gun and shot the man in the chest.
The victim hit Glass and was eventually able to finish off the gun’s remaining ammunition.
The DA’s office said the victim initially refused to identify Glass for fear of reprisal.
But District 18 patrol agents recognized Glass’s car and learned that he was a member of a local neighborhood group known as “60K”. Through this investigation, the police found Glass, who led to the charges in this case.
During Monday’s press conference, Assistant District Attorney Kwabina Coker credited an 18th District officer for saving the victim’s life.
“You can hear in the officer’s cam that the victim says, ‘I think I’m dying, I’m exhausted.’
Coker also credited the victim for his bravery at the trial.
“The victim had the strongest identification I’ve ever seen as a trial attorney. Defendant had a spider web tattoo on his right hand. And he told the judge as he stared down the barrel of a gun – one someone just shot him and when he’s trying to erase that gun – the first thing, the only thing he can really see is that spider web tattoo. that we have in this case,” Coker said.
Glass was found guilty of Robbery and Possession of Criminal Tools. He is expected to be sentenced in July.
