Who Killed Troy Polonio Jr. and Why?

Troy Polonio Jr.

Twenty-year-old Troy Polonio was shot and killed while holding his infant son at his mother-in-law’s residence on Raccoon Street on Monday night.  He was shot twice by an assailant who reportedly fled the scene on foot.  Polonio’s father happened upon the shooting while on his way home that night and saw his son’s attacker as he was running away from the area.  Tonight, another killer is on the loose as police are no closer to making an arrest in Polonio’s murder.  The execution of the young father has left his family distraught and in speaking with News Five, Troy Polonio Senior simply wants closure for the senseless murder of his son.
