Police investigate murder and arson at the same address

(WMC-TV) – Police are now investigating arson and a murder that happened at the same house.

A 33-year-old man was murdered on the 1,000 block of Eldridge Avenue over the weekend. Early Monday morning, fire crews were called to knock down flames at the same home.

Police say Marco Gilmore was simply answering a knock at his door when he was shot several times. He was rushed to The MED, but died a short time later.

Monday morning, just after 7 a.m., fire crews were called to the same home to battle a fire they say was set intentionally.

Police are still trying to get to the bottom of these two crimes that both happened at the same address.

If you have any information, you are asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 528-CASH.
