There was also another case of murder earlier this week. Richard Jackson, 40, was inside his house on Norwood Street when his door rang.
He got up to check and see who is at the door. As he opened the door, the man outside shot him directly in the chest and ran away.
His neighbors reported the incident and called for help. He was rushed to the Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, however, he did not survive.
Though it is common to hear about shootings and murders in the city, there have been an unusual amount of deaths related to murder in the past few months. Police are not sure why the number of murders have been so high lately, but they hope that this comes to an end.
