Philadelphia police are trying to solve a killing that happened this morning, April 6 2014. Authorities are calling it a home invasion and feel the victim, was the intended target.
A 911 call came in to the call center just after 10:00 a,m reporting one man who was shot one time to the chest , inside a second floor apartment at 9418 Fairgreen lane. The call came in from the victim's girlfriend, who was hiding in the closet when the incident happened.

Fairgreen lane sits off the main drag of Ashton Rd. It is not a well traveled street.

Abraham was said to have been planning to vacate the apartment next week.
