The 21-year-old city man who sustained multiple gunshot wounds to the torso during an early Tuesday morning shooting on 12th Avenue and East 22nd Street was pronounced dead at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center on Tuesday evening.
Marc Eason was pronounced dead at the hospital early Tuesday evening. His cousin Donna Nelson-Ivy, the city’s health director, was distraught when she revealed Eason’s passing at the city council meeting last night.
Eason was found lying in the intersection at about 2:04 a.m. yesterday. Police responded to the scene and rushed him to the hospital where he was in critical condition.
Police director Jerry Speziale confirmed Eason’s passing on Wednesday morning. “His family is in our thoughts and prayers,” said the director.
