We now know the name of a man killed Wednesday morning in Fairfield Township.

Officers were called to the 7800 block of Jessie's Way around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Investigators say Robert McCracken, 62, was shot in the chest at the Jessie's Landing apartment complex.

Police say the victim told his two roommates he heard someone outside. It's still unclear if the victim then went outside to check on his car and was shot outside or in his apartment entryway.
