Police spokeswoman Rose Anne Brown said police got an indication that shots had been fired in the 1600 block of West 28th Street a few minutes after 11 p.m. Price was found dead at the scene with a single gunshot wound.

Lavonnte O. Jerry is charged with first degree murder, armed robbery with a firearm and grand theft in connection with the incident, according to a news release.
