A man shot dead late Tuesday, a victim in a period of violence that saw two others killed, has been identified.
Jerome Johnson, 31, was shot several times in the chest and back on Limekiln Pike near Ridley Street about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, police spokeswoman Officer Jillian Russell said.
Johnson, who lived on Matthews Street near Wister, died about a half-hour later at Albert Einstein Medical Center. He was shot alongside two other men, a 36-year-old man who was hit in the leg and a 19-year-old shot in his left foot, police said. Their identities have not been released.
No information on a motive in the shooting is available, Russell said, and no arrests have been made. A person of interest taken into custody shortly after the shooting was released and hasn’t been charged, Russell said.
