A sad and quiet evening on the 2100 block of West 3rd Street in the city of Chester hours after a 20-year-old man was shot dead.

“I don't know how it happened what happened there's just another young guy gone,” Terry Covington, a neighbor, said.

Police say the young man - identified as Christian Jenkins - was shot in the street and then ran inside his home for help. 

Word of the man's death has spread overnight - friends and family have been stopping by the block to offer condolences.

“I know he never got in trouble - wasn't a bad kid he was very respectful.”
