A 32-year-old Philadelphia man was shot in the head and killed early Sunday morning in City Hall Park in what Burlington police described as a targeted attack.
The homicide occurred before 1 a.m., acting Police Chief Jon Murad said in a brief press release. Police have not identified or apprehended a suspect. But the release said "it currently appears that the suspect directly and specifically targeted the victim."
The man killed was identified as Bryan C. Rogers II of Philadelphia.
It's the third murder in Burlington this year; a young man was shot dead on Luck Street in the Old North End in July, while a young woman was fatally shot in a murder-suicide later that same month. Another woman targeted in that shooting survived.
Correction, September 8, 2022. A previous version of this story misstated the location of the shooting that happened on Luck Street.
