Burholme man killed in West Oak Lane shooting

A 36-year-old man was shot and killed in the 7400 block of Limekiln Pike on Tuesday afternoon.

A police spokesman said the victim, who has not yet been identified, was shot in the head and multiple times in the body just after 3 p.m. He was pronounced dead at the scene, in the city’s West Oak Lane neighborhood, less than 10 minutes later.

Police did not have a description of the shooter an hour later but are reportedly seeking two or three suspects who may have fled in a vehicle.

Capt. Joel Dales of the 14th Police District told NewsWorks that there is no indication of motive and that “we’re still trying to work things out.”

Police have identified the victim as Renford Levy of the 7100-block of Dungan Road in Burholme.
