Man arrested, 2 others sought in woman's murder in Nicetown

Cops have arrested one man and are looking for two more in a shooting early Friday morning in the city’s Nicetown section that left a 25-year-old woman dead.

Police on Saturday arrested Anthony Palmer, 33, in the shootout that cops say killed Johnika Tiggett on Dennie Street near Wayne Avenue. Tiggett was hit in the head and later died at Temple University Hospital, police said.

Palmer was arraigned Sunday on murder and gun charges, and cops are still looking for two other men in connection with the fatal shooting.
 
Less than a month ago, on Nov. 2, a man was shot to death on the same block of Dennie Street. Police have not said whether that homicide and the shootout that Tiggett died during are related.
