At least four people died Monday night into the early hours of Tuesday in shootings, Philadelphia police said. One of the deaths occurred in Old City outside a Stephen Starr restaurant called Buddakan.

One of Philadelphia’s most decorated restaurateurs, Stephen Starr, lashed out at the mayor and the police department on Tuesday after a man was shot and killed in front of his posh Old City restaurant, Buddakan.
