A 50-year-old man was shot to death in Coatesville Thursday morning, and police are investigating whether the latest homicide is related to a double homicide that occurred in the Chester County city early Wednesday morning.
Shortly after 5 a.m. Thursday, Coatesville police responded to the area of Modena Alley and Willow Alley for a report of shots fired. There, they found a man, Damon Wylie, of Coatesville, suffering from gunshot wounds.
Wylie was taken by ambulance to Paoli Hospital, where he died later Thursday, police said.
In a news release, the Coatesville Police Department said detectives are investigating whether Wylie's shooting death is related to a double homicide at about 3:20 a.m. Wednesday in a rear apartment on the 500 block of East Lincoln Highway. The apartment is about a block away from the alley where Wylie was found.
In Wednesday's double homicide, police have said that David Wayne Fitzsimmons, 56, of Coatesville, and William Chance, 46, of Philadelphia or Coatesville, died after being shot.
