Language Barrier Proves Deadly For Shooting Victim In Philly!

Mamadou Makadji, 22, was sitting on a park bench in Southwest Philadelphia, with friends when he was approached by a robber and told that a robbery was taking place. When he didn't respond quick enough, because of his language barrier, he was pistol whipped and shot in the chest. Makadji subsequently died at a local hospital as reported by the The Philadelphia Inquirer. Makadji, who was a Temple student and West African immigrant lost his life in a senseless manner. The only description of the gunman is that he's a black male with a dark complexion.
