Edilberto Miguel Palaez Moctezuma killed by stray bullet while eating Thanksgiving dinner at his Pennsylvania home

A Pennsylvania man who ate Thanksgiving dinner at his home was killed by a stray bullet that penetrated a window, officials said Friday.

Edilberto Miguel Palaez Moctezuma, 25, was sitting to eat Thursday night around 9:30 p.m., when a bullet came through the window of his home in Norristown and hit him in the torso, Montgomery County prosecutors said in a press release.

He was flown to Penn Presbyterian Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The deadly shooting happened after alleged trigger Kevon Clarke, 19, was thrown out of a nearby Thanksgiving dinner party where he apparently stole alcohol, according to prosecutors.

Clarke reportedly fired at least seven shots during a dispute over the missing booze.

The first-degree murder suspect – who was considered armed and dangerous – remained in the wind Friday night, officials said.

“Mr Palaez Moctezuma was murdered while eating Thanksgiving dinner inside his home, and to be clear, he and his family were not involved in the dispute between Clarke and others,” District Attorney Kevin Steele said in a statement.

“This is the second innocent spectator killed this year by a senseless fight that turned into gun violence by someone who is not even legally capable of owning a gun.”
