When police arrived, they found 19-year-old Jacquorrius Madison suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital but later died.
“Detectives are now investigating what led to that shooting, what the fight was all about,” Smith told Channel 2 Action News. “If the fight was just a fight or robbery or a drug deal or something along those lines.”
Smith said police “rarely, if ever” have to respond to the neighborhood where the shooting happened.
One neighbor told Channel 2 that Madison and his girlfriend had just helped her with household chores the day before he was killed.
“Sounds like he was a well-liked young man,” Smith said.
A police spokesman said Sunday afternoon there were no updates in the case.
