If you don’t know Andrew’s name, his father thinks you might recognize his dog because they were inseparable.
“Last year he was killed at number 501 in Philly,” said his father Mike Stengel.
Words that neither parent should utter when talking about their child.
“This man who did this was a cold-blooded killer and will eventually kill someone else,” he said.
On Friday, Nov. 26, the day after Thanksgiving, around 8:41 p.m., 29-year-old Andrew Stengel left his home along 7,100 blocks of Ardley Street in Philadelphia, Mount Air.
His father said Andrew left his dog, which was unusual.
“The dog and he were synonymous with each other, and for some reason he didn’t take the dog with him,” he said.
Police said that the video of the observation shows a person who is interested walking back and forth in front of Andrei’s house.
“I understand from the police that this man looked out the window of the house and saw how he came out and how he went behind the bushes,” he said.
When Andrew went to unlock his truck, police said someone came up behind him, shot him five times and fled.
Andrei was pronounced dead at the hospital.
“I don’t know what to think … it’s gang-related? It’s drug-related? Who knows what it could be,” Mike said.
Andrew’s family and friends are donating $ 80,000 as a reward.
City of Philadelphia also offers up to $ 20,000.
This amounts to a total of $ 100,000 for information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator.
All you need to do is call the Commission for Combating Crime at Citizens at 215-546-TIPS.
All calls will remain anonymous.
“We are afraid, and you know that this gun violence in the city must stop,” he said.
