A warrant has been issued in an April shooting in Kingsessing that left a 22-year-old man dead.
Shirkey Warthen was in a house on Florence Avenue near 54th Street that cops described as a known location for drug use and prostitution with several other adults the night of April 17 when gunfire erupted inside.
Warthen was hit five times, including twice in the chest, and later died at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. A 34-year-old woman was also hurt in the shooting.

He goes by the nickname "Nephew," according to authorities.
