Update: Early Morning Shooting Ruled Homicide
WILKES-BARRE — Wilkes-Barre Police have released the name of a shooting victim killed in the city.
Renold Julien, 26, was shot early Saturday morning in the parking lot of Local 88′s, a bar on Poplar Street.
He later died at the hospital.
The gunman took off after the shooting.
Police said they believe the homicide was not a random act, but that is little comfort for people living nearby.
“They try their best to keep the violence down to a minimum, so I trust what they’re doing, but sometimes it’s a little too close to home, you know,” said Ted Randolph, a neighbor.
Investigators are looking for a blue Nissan Altima in connection with the deadly shooting.
