A teenager was fatally shot in the city center following an apparent road rage incident on Wednesday night. Police are looking for two people connected to the incident.
The shooting occurred near 15th and Pine streets around 11 p.m. The teenager – Denis Mohamed Jaward, 17, of Wayne – got into an argument with the driver of a Nissan SUV while driving a Mercedes rental car, 6ABC. reports.
A man then got out of the SUV and fired into the passenger side of the Mercedes, hitting the teenager in the neck, shoulder, arm and leg. Authorities recovered four used shell casings, CBS3 reports.
Jaward was slumped over the wheel when officers arrived at the scene. He was taken to Jefferson University Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The shooter got back into the SUV and continued down 15th Street until his SUV hit a Honda near the South Street intersection and slammed into two other parked cars, police said. The SUV also hit a lamp post with enough force to overturn it.
A man and woman were seen exiting the SUV and fleeing the scene of the wreckage, police said.
Police are processing both crime scenes and reviewing surveillance footage which may have captured part of the incident. No arrests have been made at this time.
