Fatal South Philadelphia shooting death of Masir Williams – Obituary
In South Philadelphia, tragedy struck as Masir Williams, a 21-year-old streets department worker, lost his life in a fatal shooting at approximately 8:45 a.m. on Thursday.
The incident unfolded on the 2300 block of Oakford Street, and police have since issued an arrest warrant for the alleged perpetrator, Senaaj Jackson, aged 21.
The unfortunate episode transpired when three streets department employees arrived to perform their duties in the area. One of the workers had stepped out of the vehicle to purchase some water from a nearby corner store and, unexpectedly, found themselves embroiled in a confrontation within the store’s confines.
According to law enforcement, it was within the store that Jackson allegedly shot Masir Williams before hastily fleeing the scene. Williams, critically wounded, was swiftly transported to Jefferson Hospital, but regrettably succumbed to his injuries shortly thereafter.
Authorities have declared Senaaj Jackson as armed and dangerous. They urge anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts to promptly contact the homicide unit at 215-686-3334.
As is customary with all homicide cases, a reward of $20,000 awaits individuals who provide information leading to Jackson’s arrest and subsequent conviction.
