Fight in basement ends with shooting victim found on porch

- A man was shot several times in his head, chest and arms at his Tioga home, and later died at the hospital.

Police say there was a report of a shooting just after 10pm Tuesday and they found Garfield Adams, 37, on his front porch, unconscious and unresponsive.

This was in the 2300 block of W. Atlantic Street.

Detectives found six spent shell casings: five in the basement, which the victim used as a bedroom, and another outside.

They also found signs of a fight in the basement, like overturned furniture.

Police interviewed several people who were inside the house at the time, but have not released a motive or description of the gunman.
