Crime Fighters: Who killed Kenneth Jones?

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — A grieving family is celebrating a somber anniversary this weekend. Authorities hope the public can help solve Kenneth Jones’ murder.

On Thursday, February 17, 2022, 34-year-old Kenneth Jones sat in a black Hyundai Elantra at Block 6000 of Kingsessing Avenue in the Kingsessing neighborhood of Philadelphia.

It was just after 2 p.m. when police were called to the scene of a “person with a gun.”

“Upon their arrival there was a man who did not respond to them and was apparently shot. He had multiple gunshot wounds,” said Santo Montecalvo of the Citizens Crime Commission.

Jones had been shot 11 times and was pronounced dead in hospital half an hour later.

Authorities say shell casings found at the scene led them to believe there was more than one shooter.

“There were shell casings at the scene, 16 to be the number, eight of which were .40 caliber and eight were nine millimeters,” he said. “It indicated that there were two people. That’s number one. The fact that number two was shot often made it sound like a very personal act.”

City of Philadelphia is offering up to $20,000 in reward money for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual responsible. All you have to do is call the Citizens Crime Commission at 215-546-TIPS. All calls remain anonymous.

“By calling the tip hotline, you will receive a seven-digit code number. This code number is then documented that you called with the date and time of your call.”

With this code you would collect the reward money.
