Why wasn’t the victim identified? Now that’s two who’ve died in gun violence in the same area within weeks.

Hi Hmmm,
The Coroner’s Office determines the identity and releases the victim’s name after next of kin have been notified. At times, although rarely, a police department asks the coroner to hold off on public release of the identity if they deem it would impair the investigation.
