Relatives gathered along the crime scene perimeter as homicide investigators looked for evidence after a 20-year-old man was shot to death shortly after 9 p.m. Monday on Kerbaugh Street, between Broad Street and Germantown Avenue in the Nicetown section of Philadelphia.
UPDATE: Police have identified the victim as Daquan Clentscale, 20, according to a Philadelphia Daily News report which also indicated: N. Philly man charged in dispute that turned fatal
According to police, officers responded to reports of a shooting and arrived to find a 21-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds to the head, arms and chest. Medics pronounced him the victim on location and investigators said they located 13 fired shell casings in close proximity to the victim.
Police said that the alleged shooter was still on the scene when they arrived and was arrested without any incident, according to a report from the Philadelphia Daily News, adding that police also said both the victim and suspect had 9mm handguns.
As we reported yesterday, recently-released Philadelphia Police data indicates that nearly half of the homicides reported in Philadelphia last year resulted from arguments.
Another man was shot multiple times and killed in a separate incident Monday afternoon, near Buist Avenue and 73rd Street, in the Eastwick section of Southwest Philadelphia.
