A suspect has been arrested in connection with the killing of a journalist and activist inside his Philadelphia home.

On Wednesday night, Philadelphia police announced the arrest of 19-year-old Robert Edmond Davis in the murder of Josh Kruger.

Kruger was a 39-year-old freelance journalist and former city employee. He was shot seven times in the chest and abdomen on the morning of October 2.

Lt. Hamilton Marshmond of the Philadephia Police Department said Kruger and Davis were acquaintances and Kruger was trying to help Davis.

“He was just trying to help him get through life,” Marshmond said during a news conference earlier this month.

Sources say Kruger had extensive text messages with Davis. Those sources also told 6abc that drugs were found in Kruger’s home.
