Saturday, August 25, 2012

Authorities in eastern Pennsylvania have classified as a homicide the death of a youth found shot several times in the bedroom of his Allentown home.

City officials said police and paramedics were called to the row house after 17-year-old Kareem Fedd was found shortly before 4 a.m. Friday.

He was rushed to Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest, where he was pronounced dead about a half-hour later.

The county coroner ruled the death of the youth, who would have been a senior a William Allen High School, a homicide due to multiple gunshot wounds.

Investigators could be seen Friday dusting a fire escape and window for fingerprints.

Authorities haven't talked about suspects or a motive, but assistant police chief Joe Hanna said investigators are confident that the shooting wasn't random.
