It’s a nightmare scenario for the city’s rental property owners.

A tenant who apparently believed her landlord shut off her electricity shot and killed him, according to Philadelphia police.

Hapco Philadelphia says being a rental property owner is hard enough these days without having to worry about being injured or killed by a renter.

And President Greg Wertman says anti-landlord sentiment at Philadelphia City Council has created a hostile environment for rental property owners.

“Landlords are always made out to be the bad guys.  And when that’s repeated enough, it’s no wonder there’s growing violence aimed at us.”
