NoLibs shooting leaves one dead

Shots rang out in North­ern Liber­ties Monday morn­ing at the res­taur­ant PYT in the Piazza at Schmidt’s, leav­ing one man dead.

Po­lice spokes­wo­man, of­ficer Jill­ian Rus­sell, said po­lice were called to the scene on Han­cock Street at

Ger­man­town Av­en­ue at about 12:03 a.m. on Monday morn­ing.

Po­lice be­lieve the in­cid­ent oc­curred after an al­ter­ca­tion.

Rus­sell said that at that time, po­lice found that Maurice Kimble of Up­per Darby, who she said was 24 years old, had been shot twice, once in the chest and once in the groin.

Emer­gency re­sponse teams trans­por­ted Kimble to Hahne­mann Uni­versity Hos­pit­al, where he was pro­nounced dead at about 2:40 a.m.

Of­ficer Rus­sell said that as of press time Monday, po­lice had not yet made an ar­rest and she had no in­form­a­tion on a pos­sible sus­pect.

She also had no in­form­a­tion on what might have star­ted the al­ter­ca­tion.••
