A gunman shot and killed a teenager along a South Philadelphia street midday Wednesday.
Gunfire rang out on S Bancroft Street near Tasker Street around 11:45 a.m. leaving 17-year-old Tyrese Johnson shot twice in his back, Philadelphia police said.
Officers rushed the boy to Penn Presbyterian Hospital where doctors pronounced Johnson — who lived a few blocks away on Cleveland Street — dead a short time later, police said.
As SkyForce10 hovered overhead, you could see investigators searching for clues.
When identifying Johnson Thursday, investigators still didn’t reveal a motive for the killing or name any possible suspects.
