Police seek fifth suspect in Nicetown shootout that killed 25-year-old woman

Philadelphia Police have arrested four men in connection with a Friday morning homicide in Nicetown, but are seeking the public’s help in tracking down the fifth.

Johnika Tiggett, 25, suffered a gunshot wound to the head in the 2000 block of Dennie St. around 1:30 a.m. Friday. There, a bar fight reportedly trickled out into the street where Tiggett was caught in the middle of gunfire. She was taken to Temple University Hospital where she was declared dead just before 11:30 p.m.

Four men already arrested in connection with the case have been charged with murder and related offenses. However, police are still seeking Terrell Antwon of the 4400 block of Cleveland St.

Anyone with information about Antwon’s whereabouts is asked to call the tips line at (215) 686-8477 (TIPS), text a tip to 773847 (PPD TIP) or submit information via the department’s website.
