PHILADELPHIA -

Mike Hagan felt the pain all over again as he saw reports Tuesday morning of a 35-year-old man who was robbed and then shot in Philadelphia's Society Hill section.

The victim in the shooting at Fourth and Pine streets works as a pharmacist at a CVS.

Police say the suspect was captured on camera running from the victim.

The shooting happened on a block Hagan knows all too well.

"Another senseless act down there in the same neighborhood. Probably not even a hundred yards from where Michael was killed," Hagan told FOX 29's Dave Kinchen.

Hagan's son, 32-year-old Michael Hagan Jr., was robbed, shot and killed at Fourth and Lombard last July, not far from the scene of Monday night's shooting.

The killer in his son's case is still on the loose. When he learned of Monday's shooting, Hagan called police detectives to see if there was a link between the killer and Monday night's suspect.

"Hopefully, something will happen that breaks the case for our son."

While the Hagans wait for word from investigators, the family says they plan to post more flyers with Michael's picture to keep his case alive.

The Hagan family says they are also thinking of the latest victim's family.

"His parents are suffering, they're in our prayers," Hagan said. "We know what they're going through first-hand and it's terrible."

    Public Advocate Letitia James says a 3-ounce camera, if used correctly, could be a key tool in improving community and police relations. She showed off one of the cameras she believes NYPD patrol officers need to be wearing. She said that the cameras would be a "win-win" for the public, transparency, police accountability improving police community relations, reducing civil liability.
