    Philadelphia Police say Kevin Davis, 26, shot and killed 19-year-old Jahmeer Jett outside his Southwest Philadelphia home on Jan. 17. Jett is the son of a Philadelphia Police officer.

    Homicide detectives in Philadelphia say they have arrested the man responsible for murdering an officer's son outside his Southwest Philadelphia home.

    Kevin Davis, 26, has been charged with the murder of 19-year-old Jahmeer Jet along the 6200 block of Grays Avenue on Jan. 17., police said on Monday.

    Jett, an aspiring boxer, was walking into his house along the block just before 6 p.m. when he was suddenly approached from behind and shot at point blank range, police said. He was rushed to the Hospital of The University of Pennsylvania where he later died.

    Philadelphia Police Homicide Capt. James Clark called Jett a good kid who was not known to police and nothing was taken from his person. After the murder, police asked for the public's help in identifying the person responsible.

    Detectives have not yet released a motive for the murder.

    Davis was denied bail. He is being held at the Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility.
