He wasn’t known by that name

When Kevin Jean-Jacques was wheeled into the hospital, his skin was cold to the touch, his eyes were dilated and he had a bullet in his side.

The cause of death was homicide, but everything else about the 20-year-old’s death remains a mystery a day after he was pronounced dead at Southern Regional Medical Center.

Police responded to the hospital on Upper Riverdale Road at about 9:30 p.m., Wednesday, to a 911 call reporting a person shot and dead, according to a police report. Jean-Jacques was brought to the hospital by Alfred Wheeler, a 20-year-old who worked with him at Frito Lay.

Wheeler told police that Jean-Jacques was shot outside a convenience store after being mistaken for his brother.
