Syracuse, NY — A Syracuse property manager has been identified as the person who shot and killed a 28-year-old man Tuesday after the man allegedly fired a gun of his own at multiple people.
The property manager, Richard Morose, was at 1808 Lodi St. when he pulled a legally possessed 9mm handgun and killed Demetris Jackson, the Onondaga County District Attorney’s Office said Thursday in a news release.
Jackson had just fired a 9mm handgun of his own at several people before Morose returned fire around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, the DA’s office said, based on a preliminary investigation.
While Syracuse police and prosecutors continue to investigate, “it appears that Mr. Morose saved the lives of several individuals,” the DA’s office wrote.
