Easton Police Investigating Another Shooting Death

A 44-year-old man was shot and killed late Sunday night in Easton's Southside.

The man, who is from New York City, was reportedly found by police at about 9:30 p.m. at the intersection of Nesquehoning and McKeen streets.

Northampton County Coroner Zachary Lysek has ruled his death a homicide, and the  Easton Police Department, the Northampton County DA’s Office and the Northampton County Coroner’s Office are  all investigating the circumstances of the shooting, police said in a press release.

The victim's name name is being withheld until next of kin is notified.

Investigators are reportedly looking for an unknown vehicle that fled the area after the shooting. The vehicle may have fled west on Nesquehoning Street to west on Canal Street, authorities said.

Police ask that anyone with information about the shooting please call Inspector Daniel Reagan at 610-250-6796 or 610-759-2200. Those submitting tips may remain anonymous.

The homicide is the second in just over a week in Southside, and the fifth this year in the City of Easton.

Police are also still investigating the shooting death of Ervin Holton, who was killed last week. In that incident, no suspects have yet been officially named.
