A 16-year-old Pennsylvania teen has been shot multiple times while exiting a Lyft car along with his twin sister.  

Ahajaon Jackson and his twin sister arrived home around 11 p.m. Tuesday after getting off work at a McDonald's about a mile away. As they were exiting a Lyft car in the East Oak Lane section of Philadelphia, two males approached Jackson and fired 15 shots. Jackson was shot at least 10 times.

His sister managed to run into the house and was unharmed in the attack, reported WCAU. 

Jackson was rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 
 
Police believe Jackson was the main target of the shooting.

"Due to the fact that this 16-year-old was hit multiple times, over 10 times, in his head, chest and his back, it appears he was clearly the intended target due to the fact that he was struck so many times by gunfire and the ballistic evidence was just feet — and some was just inches away — from where he had collapsed," Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said as per WPVI

The two assailants left the gun used in the shooting on the ground. However, the police were unable to determine who the gun belonged to.  

Police visited Jackson's workplace but found there was no report of any argument or issues at the McDonald's joint.

"This is the first shooting I know of on this block in 40 years," Robert Zimmerman, a neighbor told WCAU.

The motive behind the shooting is unclear. Police are investigating the incident. 

Community members held a vigil Wednesday night to celebrate the life and mourn the death of Jackson. Some of them also spoke up, calling out authorities to "do something" about the tragic incident.

"Politicians, the police commissioner, everybody, we're calling out for you to do something. Make a stand for us at this time!" Angela M. Smith said, according to WPVI. "I've talked to a couple people, they're tired of meetings. They want to see solutions, action and change. If that means we have to bring in the National Guard, so what if it's an embarrassment. What's more embarrassing is someone's child is dead?"
