It was 8:30 p.m. Thursday, March 12. The boys - ages 14, 15, and 15 - first eyed a man and his dog.
Then Jim Stuhlman appeared on the 6400 block of Woodcrest Avenue with his labradoodle, Molly.
Stuhlman, 51, was older than the first man. And Molly, the boys later told police, looked "weak or soft."
There was a brief struggle. Stuhlman, married and the father of a young daughter, pleaded for his life. He was shot once in the chest. The boys panicked and left Stuhlman's belongings on his mortally wounded body.
"Nothing," said Philadelphia Police Capt. James Clark. "Nothing was taken, which makes this even more senseless and even more troubling. Nothing was taken at all, and he lost his life."
For no other reason than these kids wanted to rob somebody, he ended up losing his life," Clark said. "His daughter will never see her father again. That is really sad."
The dog stayed by Stuhlman's side until neighbors came across the two.
