A Pennsylvania man consuming Thanksgiving dinner inside his house was killed by a stray bullet that pierced by a window, officers stated Friday.
Edilberto Miguel Palaez Moctezuma, 25, was sitting all the way down to eat Thursday evening round 9:30 p.m. when a bullet got here by the window of his Norristown house and struck him within the torso, Montgomery County prosecutors stated in a press launch.
He was flown to Penn Presbyterian Hospital, the place he was pronounced useless.
The lethal capturing occurred after alleged triggerman Kevon Clarke, 19, was kicked out of a close-by Thanksgiving feast the place he apparently stole alcohol, in line with prosecutors.
Clarke allegedly fired off at the very least seven photographs throughout a dispute over the lacking booze.
The first-degree homicide suspect — who was thought-about armed and harmful –remained within the wind Friday evening, officers stated.
“Mr. Palaez Moctezuma was murdered while eating Thanksgiving dinner inside his home, and to be clear, he and his family were not involved in the dispute between Clarke and others,” District Attorney Kevin Steele stated in a press release.
“This is the second innocent bystander killed this year by a senseless dispute that turned to gun violence by someone who is not even legally able to own a gun.”
