Man killed in Harrisburg shooting


UPDATE: The man who was killed has been identified as 25-year-old Miguel Cruz-Gonzalez.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — A young man was shot and killed in Harrisburg on Tuesday.

Police responded to the 1200-block of South 13th Street, which is right down the road from Foose Elementary, at 4:30 p.m.

The man’s body was found across the street from the Hoverter Homes, drawing a large crowd of people.

Police said they spoke to some of the people outside, but cannot yet say if they are considered witnesses.

“We can only assume that there were people out here that saw. It would be a pure assumption at this point,” said Capt. Terry Wealand, Harrisburg Police Department.

The shooting happened down the street from De La Cruz Grocery. In April 2019, two people were injured in a shooting right outside the store.

The manager said because of that shooting, they replaced their windows with bullet proof glass, so they didn’t hear much.

“Nobody has came forward at this point, but I would encourage anybody that does have any information at this point to call the Dauphin County Dispatch,” Capt. Wealand said.

A search is now on for the person or people responsible. In the mean time the public mourns, and police press on.

“The more activity that we get of this nature, the more difficult it is, because our resources get spread a little thing. It does get difficult,” Capt. Wealand said.

This is a developing story. ABC27 News will provide more information as it becomes available.
