Philadelphia Police sources have informed Channel3 NOW that homicide detectives possess an arrest warrant for 19-year-old Robert Edmond Davis in connection with the murder of Philadelphia journalist Josh Kruger.
Kruger, a prominent advocate and journalist, was fatally shot in the chest earlier this week at his South Philadelphia residence.
He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Philadelphia police identified a person of interest a day and a half later. However, they have not disclosed additional details.
City officials have scheduled a press conference at 12:30 p.m. to give an update. Prior to reentering journalism in 2021, Kruger had spent five years in local government, serving as a City Hall content director, communications director, and spokesperson, as indicated on his website.
His articles had been published in several local publications, including the Philadelphia Inquirer.
This is a developing story that will be updated when more information is available.
