The Philadelphia Police Department released footage Friday that showed a large group of teenagers using a traffic cone to beat a 72-year-old man to death.

James Lambert died after he was ambushed and savagely beaten with a traffic cone at about 2:38 a.m. June 24, police said.

“The teens struck the victim several times with objects, knocking the victim to the ground causing injuries to his head,” according to police.

“The victim was transported to the hospital where he died of his injuries the following day. The offenders are described as four black males and three black females who appear to be in their early to mid teens.”

In the video published by the Philadelphia police, one of the men can be seen running up behind Lambert and beating him over the head with the cone while another man films.

A woman then picks up the cone and smashes it on the elderly man’s head.

Lambert manages to escape and run for a moment, but a woman throws the cone at his back.

A $20,000 reward has been posted for help in catching those responsible, police said.
