Friday Shooting Victim Does Not Survive

This time there is no confusion about the status of this victim of a shooting around 1a.m. last Friday at the Boulevard Townhomes on South Welles Street in Wilkes-Barre. One early report stated a man had died, but at that time he was still fighting for his life. Today it's confirmed that Christopher Narain-asami died Saturday afternoon from a gunshot wound of the head. A second victim was released after being treated for a bullet wound in the hip. The city's eighth homicide this year has police hunting for a "person of interest" identified as 27 year old Jordan Stevens, who the Times Leader reports has ties to Brooklyn. Last Friday Wilkes-Barre Police Chief Gerard Dessoye told WILK three men were walking through the housing complex and the gunman opened fire, hitting two of them.
