Judge denies request from parents of S. Ewing Avenue murder suspect
Vincent Dooley will stay behind bars on a $100,000 cash bond. He's charged in Wednesday morning's shooting on South Ewing Avenue near Payne Street.
A man in his late 20's was found dead at the scene, shot in the head, according to an arrest report. Police say Dooley called a family member before calling 911. When he did call 911, police say he told dispatchers that someone tried to punch him.
Initially, Dooley told police he had invited the victim and another man into his home, but he was reluctant to give officers any further information, according to police.
When detectives spoke with one of Dooley's family members, she allegedly informed the detectives that, before he called 911, Dooley had admitted to her that he had shot someone. She said she had to encourage him to call 911, according to the arrest report.
Police say a forensic examination revealed no evidence of a struggle, as Dooley suggested.
Dooley also faces drug charges.
The name of the man killed has not been released.
