The Philadelphia Inquirer reports John Whitehead likely was not the intended target of gunmen who shot and killed him and wounded a close family friend behind Whitehead’s West Oak Lane home, police said Wednesday. Investigators have identified the other victim as Oemidd Johnson, 20, who they said might have been a nephew of Whitehead’s. “At this time, we do believe that Mr. Whitehead was not the intended target, and that he was just there,” said Police Capt. Richard Ross, commander of the Homicide Unit. “I certainly don’t want to say he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, because he was outside his home.”
