Christmas Day Cheltenham Shooting Victim Identified

By Jericka Duncan

CHELTENHAM, Pa. (CBS) — Police are searching for the person who gunned down a man in a suburban Philadelphia residence on Christmas Day.

Officers in Montgomery County were called to the home in the 1400 block of Beech Avenue in the Melrose Park section of Cheltenham Township at about 2 a.m. Sunday. A party there turned from good to God-awful. Police say someone shot and killed 25-year-old Robbens Borno of Philadelphia, while he was visiting friends.

Borno had multiple gunshot wounds and was taken to Einstein Medical Center, where he died about a half-hour later.

"Generally it's a good neighborhood," said a man who only wanted to be referred to as Dave.

At least one neighbor Eyewitness interviewed said the people who live at the home where Borno was shot are known for having disruptive parties.

Cheltanham Township Police confirm they've been called to 1417 Beech Avenue in the past for nuisance violations, not violence.

Police are searching for a black male, armed with a semi-automatic handgun, wearing an Adidas sweatshirt and dark clothing last seen driving a grey late model sedan. Police already recovered his vehicle a few miles away from the crime scene, in the 6700 block of Old York Road in Philadelphia.
