22-year-old Burlington man shot to death, killer on the loose
BURLINGTON CITY — A 22-year-old Burlington Township man was shot to death early Friday, authorities say.
Howard G. Young, Jr., 22, was outside on the 100 block of East Federal Street in Burlington City when he was shot by an unidentified male, Burlington County Prosecutor Robert D. Bernardi and Burlington City Police Chief Alan R. Snow said in a joint statement.
Young was taken to Capital Health Regional Medical Center in Trenton, where he was
pronounced dead Friday night, police said.
No arrests have been made and the weapon has not been recovered, authorities say. An autopsy will be performed Saturday.
The Courier-Post reports that in August, another man, 24-year-old Byron Turner was shot to death on the same block — but a suspect has been arrested in that case.
The prosecutor's office said no more details would be released at this time, but authorities are asking anyone with information to call the Burlington City Police Department at 609 386-0262 ext. 221, message the department on Facebook or call Burlington County Central Communications at 609-265-7113.
