Vehicles parked on Millbank Road in the Stonehurst Hills section were riddled with bullet holes after a shootout late Monday night.

Police responded to reports of shots fired at 11:30 p.m. on the 500 block of Millbank Road and continue to investigate the incident.

DeVaughn Jigaboo-Tucker-Knight, 21, of the 6100 block of North 11th Street, Philadelphia, was found shot and was transported to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and pronounced dead at 12:20 a.m. Tuesday.

He suffered two gunshot wounds to the chest and arm.

“It was a shootout between Tucker-Knight and the individual he was robbing in a drug deal,” Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said.“A total of nine shots were fired from both semiautomatic weapons. Apparently, Tucker-Knight’s gun jammed when he pulled it out for the holdup. It was like the Wild, Wild West. There are bullet holes in cars parked on the street and one car has a flat tire from one of the shots.”

The other person involved in the gunfire, a 24-year-old male from Upper Darby, ran for cover behind a car and was not shot.

According to Chitwood, the robbery victim is a person of interest in the investigation into the fatal shooting involving a drug sale of prescription medication.

“The 24-year-old has no arrest record and has a permit to carry a gun,” Chitwood said.“He was taking Percocet for an arm injury and a woman told him she knew someone who would buy them. He decided to sell them and when he went outside to meet the guy, Tucker-Knight pulls out a gun and says,‘Give me all you got.’

“We may not be charging him. We obtained a search warrant for the house of the person of interest and are working with the district attorney. We gave the (district attorney’s) office the evidence we have.”
