Death comes to Point Breeze

At approximately 4:22 p.m., officers located Jessie Williams shot inside his 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee at Point Breeze Avenue and Wharton Street and arranged transportation for him to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, with personnel pronouncing him at 5:06 p.m., Officer Tanya Little of Police Public Affairs said. They later identified Tysheed Davis, of the 2200 block of Wharton Street, as another shooting victim, locating him on the 1200 block of Point Breeze Avenue with a gunshot wound to his finger. They secured transportation for him to go to Penn Presbyterian Hospital, where personnel listed him in stable condition.

The authorities’ investigation states that the 26-year-old local shot Williams and that Williams returned fire, leading to the former’s finger injury. Police recovered a gun on the highway and one in Davis’s car, Little said. They charged him with murder, attempted murder, aggravated assault, and firearms violations. He awaits a May 18 status hearing.
