Fatal shooting in West Oak Lane

A 25-year-old man was fatally shot in the city’s West Oak Lane section early Saturday morning, police said.
The victim, whose identity was not released, was taken to Albert Einstein Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
Witnesses told authorities that gunfire erupted shortly before 6 a.m. after the victim got into a fight with another man or men in the 7200 block of Pittville Ave.
Detectives are investigating whether the shooting was an act of self-defense, a police spokeswoman said.
“It looks like the victim might have fired first,” she said.
