Police investigate homicide in Harrisburg

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Harrisburg police are investigating a homicide at the Hoverter Homes housing project off South 13th Street.

Officers just after 8 p.m. Tuesday were called to 1114B Cloverly Road, where they found a Hispanic man shot multiple times.

Police said they found his body in the kitchen of the residence, but it's unclear if he lived there.

Harrisburg Police Chief Pierre Ritter said two to three other people were inside the home when the shooting occurred and have been questioned. He said there is no word on a motive.

Neighbors told police they saw a man in dark clothing running from the home after hearing the shots, but there is the possibility more suspects were involved, Ritter said.

An autopsy on the victim is scheduled for Wednesday.

The homicide is Harrisburg's ninth of the year.
