They found 64-year-old Leopold McKoy shot multiple times in a parking lot at the Sergi Farms apartments, prosecutors said. The Bear, Delaware, man was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police didn’t reveal any details about a potential motive for the shooting or reveal who might be responsible. Investigators could be seen using flashlights to search between parked cars in the lot before daylight.
Barry Sharer, the president of New Jersey-based AAH Management Co., Inc., said that McKoy didn't live at Sergi Farms and that the management company was working with police to ensure the safety of all residents.
"This is the first such incident like this at Sergi Farms," Sharer said Monday. "Sergi Farms is a 23-year old Low Income Tax Credit Housing apartment complex consisting of 120-multi-famly two and three bedroom units. It is a quiet community for residents whose income is 50% or below the median county income. It consists of six apartment buildings and an office/laundry facility building located on 10-acres in Cherry Hill.
