Coroner: Homicide victim killed with 2 guns

A Harrisburg man shot to death this week was struck by multiple bullets fired from two guns, according to the Dauphin County coroner.

Coroner Graham Hetrick said an autopsy Thursday found that 20-year-old Cortney Jackson suffered bullet wounds to his chest, abdomen and back, including a critical wound that went through his heart.

Hetrick said that while two different types of bullets were recovered from Jackson's body, he could not be sure whether the killing was committed by two shooters or by one shooter with two guns.

Jackson was found dead by officers who responded to the shooting incident in the 900 block of Long Street at around 8:15 p.m. Monday.

Police have announced no arrests or suspects in the homicide, the city's fourth of 2013.
