Tragic news strikes as John Hershock, a prominent Philadelphia DJ, has passed away due to injuries sustained in a shooting incident last week in Chinatown, according to police sources.
Hershock, aged 38, was leaving Tango nightclub on Appletree Street early Wednesday morning when he fell victim to a senseless act of violence in an alleyway. Following the incident, he was admitted to the hospital and placed on life support, but sadly, he succumbed to his injuries on Friday.
Known far and wide for his unwavering passion for Philadelphia sports and music, Hershock was a beloved figure in the region. Friends fondly recall his vibrant presence as he hosted the Phillies Tailgate event on Tuesday night, exemplifying his role as the life of the party.
Despite reports of a scuffle outside the club that fateful night, authorities do not suspect Hershock’s involvement in any altercations. Investigators continue to interview witnesses and have reported significant progress in the case, expressing optimism about making an arrest in the near future.
The city mourns the loss of a cherished DJ, and the quest for justice in this tragic event remains a top priority for local law enforcement.
