Two separate shootings mark Chester City’s first two homicides of 2018

The first two murders in 2018 for Chester City happened overnight, and it’s a record, of sorts for the city.

Citizens of Chester City mourned the loss of over two-dozen men, women and children who were killed in 2017, a summer of shootings that left 8 people dead in the first 8 weeks of the summer, starting with a 16-year-old boy being gunned down walking to his last day of school.

2018 started off brighter without any homicides in the first 3 weeks. The streak came to a bloody end Tuesday night after 3 shootings left 2 people dead and one other wounded.

The first man was shot and killed while sitting in a white Kia Sportage in the middle of the street after suffering from several gunshot wounds.

Police responding to 911 calls in the area of the 500 block of Mosley Court in Chester City about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday found the man in his car with numerous gunshot wounds, officials told YC.

The male, later identified as Chadease Coleman, was unresponsive when police and paramedics from Crozer-Chester Medical Center arrived on location.
