Man, 21, Shot Dead Outside Bethlehem Club

The man killed in a Bethlehem shooting early Saturday has been identified at Tyree Wimberly, 21, of Allentown.

The victim of Bethlehem's first 2013 homicide has been identified as Tyree Wilberly, 21, of 2341 S. Alice St., Allentown, according to the Lehigh County coroner.

Wimberly was shot Saturday at 1:36 a.m. outside Scoobies Gentlemen's Club at W. Broad Street near Club Avenue, which is near the Bethlehem-Allentown border.

Neighbors who live near the club told Lehigh Valley Live that they weren't surpised by the shooting. They said it's common to hear loud arguments outside the club on weekends.

Wimberly was pronounced dead at 3:40 a.m. at St. Luke's University Hospital, Fountain Hill.

Bethlehem police and the Lehigh County coroner are investigating with assistance from Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin.
