A South Jersey man suspected of being the gunman who fired into the parking lot of Delilah’s gentlemen’s club in Northern Liberties, narrowly missing a woman getting into a car, has waived extradition to Philadelphia.


Lawrence Mitchell, 29, was arrested at his home in Gloucester Township on Thursday, four days after the shooting.

He appeared in a Camden County courtroom on Tuesday and after a brief hearing waived extradition to Philadelphia, officials said.





Camden County officials said a high-caliber magazine found in his house when he was arrested matches the type of weapon used in the shooting.

It is not yet known when Philadelphia police would return him to the city to face charges in the shooting.

A source close to the investigation said investigators believe Mitchell fired an AR-15 rifle from the fifth-story window of an apartment building under reconstruction across the street from Delilah’s, at Front and Spring Garden Streets. 




The gunfire struck two vehicles near a woman outside the club around 6 p.m. March 27. Authorities have not yet said if they believe the shooter was targeting the woman.

A massive police response to the incident prompted the temporary closure of several ramps from I-95. The club reopened  the day after the shooting.
