3 Killed in Execution-Style Shooting

Authorities have released the names of three men killed earlier this month in what police have called an execution-style slaying in a northeast Philadelphia home.

The Philadelphia Daily News reports that the victims were 24-year-old Keurlin Charles, 34-year-old Vander Freemont and 25-year-old Brian Williams.

Investigators say Charles and Freemont were found tied up and shot in the head on the first-floor of a house on the 6300 block of Martin Mills Road in the Lawncrest section of the city on Feb. 13.

Officers discovered Williams, who was also shot in the head, in a second-floor bedroom.

Police believe a semi-automatic weapon was used and say the house was ransacked, according to reports.

Authorities received a call about the victims around 3:15 p.m. after a woman was heard screaming in the driveway.

Officer Leeloni Palmiero, a police spokeswoman, said no arrests have been made in the case and there was no information available on a motive in the slayings.

Anyone with information on the killings is asked to contact Philadelphia Police.
