NEW CASTLE, Pa. (WYTV) – A man was hit by gunfire and a woman was grazed by a bullet during a shooting in New Castle Thursday morning.
The shooting happened about 4:15 a.m. at a home on East Meyer Avenue.
New Castle Police said that Lloyd Johnson, 21, was killed after being shot once in the chest. A 21-year-old woman was shot in the wrist.
Police said they believe JuJuan “Mook” Jackson, 33, was targeting the woman, who is his ex-girlfriend.
Both victims were taken to Jameson Hospital. Johnson was later flown to St. Elizabeth Health Center, where he was pronounced dead around 9:45 a.m. Thursday. The female has been released.
