A 38-year-old man died of multiple gunshot wounds Friday night along the 700 block of Highland Avenue in Chester, the city’s police department said.
When police arrived at the scene shortly before 11 p.m., a woman was leaning over the man, identified as Ricardo Burnett, urging him to “stay awake” and “stay with us,” police said. He was shot multiple times in the upper torso.
Burnett was taken to Crozer Chester Medical Center, where he died, becoming Chester’s 13th homicide victim this year.
No arrest was reported.
