Victim of fatal shooting identified
Our Homicide Unit continues to investigate after a man was found deceased in the northeast community of Falconridge earlier this week.
Police were called on Monday, July 4, 2022, for reports of shots fired in the 0-100 block of Falsby Way N.E. Upon arrival, one man was found deceased.
An autopsy completed by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner earlier today has identified the victim as 27-year-old Shakiel Ahkeem BENNETT, who died as the result of a gunshot wound.
Investigators believe this to be a targeted incident and do not have any suspects in custody at this time.
Investigators have learned that on the day of the shooting, the victim was traveling with an unknown passenger in a Black Nissan Rogue prior to the shooting, and they arrived together at the residence where the shooting occurred. Investigators are releasing an image of the passenger in the hopes of locating them, as police believe they may have critical information that can help advance this investigation.
