Second Bristol Twp. shooting victim has died
Posted: Thursday, July 10, 2014
A second man has died as a result of Tuesday’s triple shooting in Bristol Township’s Winder Village section, police confirm.
Joshua Johnson, 29, who had been hospitalized following the shooting, died Wednesday night, Bristol Township Police Lt. Terry Hughes said.
Johnson lived in the home in the 900 block of Winder Drive where the shooting occurred. He sustained a gunshot wound to the head and was on life support at Aria Health’s Torresdale campus.
Tyrone Moss, 31, of Fleetwing Drive, was found dead at the scene of the shooting, which occurred around 1 a.m. on Tuesday. He was shot in the head, police said.
A third man, Lamel Duffy, 24, of Veterans Highway in Middletown, remains in critical condition. He was shot in the back, but managed to get to a neighbor’s home after the shooting.
Bristol Township police have released no new information on the case, though detectives continued to search through the Winder Drive home Thursday collecting evidence. No murder weapon has been found or identified, though shell casings were found at the scene, police said.
Police have called the shooting part of a possible home invasion, though there was no sign of forced entry to the home where the shooting occurred, police said.
About 150 people, mostly family, friends and neighbors, gathered along Winder Drive on Wednesday night for a vigil for the victims.
After the shooting Tuesday, Bristol Township resident Kendra Jones said she knew Johnson, a father of two. She said he had been shot in Philadelphia years ago and the injuries left him needing to use a wheelchair, she said. Jones said the person who shot Johnson was never arrested.
“He was a good guy,” Jones added.
The shooting occurred on the same street where a 19-year-old Bristol Township man was killed six years ago; that murder remains unsolved.
Jimmy Dennis Moore was shot to death in front of his Winder Drive home around 3:30 a.m. Sept. 16, 2007. At the time of his death, Moore had an 18-month-old daughter and was studying electronics at Pennco Tech, a family member had said at the time.
