A Philadelphia sanitation employee was gunned down Friday morning in what seemed to be a focused assault and “heinous act of violence,” authorities mentioned.
The taking pictures occurred at 10:30 a.m. within the 3300 hundred block of Tudor Road, Fox Philadelphia reported. The employee was recognized as 35-year-old Ikeem Johnson.
“As we speak, we misplaced a devoted Metropolis worker, a sanitation employee for the Streets Division who was merely doing his job and serving our metropolis,” Mayor Jim Kenney mentioned in a joint assertion with Streets Division Commissioner Carlton Williams. “A household is now devastated, colleagues are left to mourn this horrible loss, and our group as soon as once more should address this mindless tragedy.”
Johnson was shot a number of occasions and was pronounced lifeless on the scene. He had been in his function for 5 years.
Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw mentioned the taking pictures was not a random assault. No arrests have but been made, and no weapon was recovered.
Town is providing a $20,000 reward for data resulting in an arrest and conviction.
