The victim who was in a Mercedes sedan, was reportedly engaged in a road-rage dispute with someone inside of a Nissan SUV, when a man jumped out of the SUV and fired at least four shots into the passenger’s side of the Mercedes. The teen was hit in the neck, shoulder, arm, and leg.

First responding police officers on the scene reported finding the teen slump over the steering wheel. He was taken to Jefferson University Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The suspected shooter driving the Nissan, ran back to the vehicle and fled after the shooting. The Nissan was next seen again at 15th & South Streets. The driver of the vehicle reportedly struck a Honda that had two women inside, then hit two parked cars after losing control, caused by the crash with the Honda.

The two women in the Honda told police they saw two people, one male and one female, fleeing from the Nissan after the crash. The women were not injured in the accident. Police believe the male was the suspected shooter.

No two suspects escaped on foot. No one has been arrested at this time.
