Jerry Correa was a prankster.
When he was talking on the phone, some of his parting words were: "Did you hear about clink?"
Before the person on the other end had a chance to ask who or what clink was, he'd hang up, his sister, Cathy Correa said on Sunday.
"He always had to get the last word in before he hung up," she said.
Jerry Correa was killed in an early Saturday morning shooting in York City. He was 33. He was a 1996 graduate of Glen Mills School near Philadelphia.
Shooting: Jerry Correa was a passenger in a car driving in the 200 block of Walnut Street shortly after 3 a.m. Saturday when several shots were fired, police had said.
One of the bullets struck Correa in the head.
The driver of the car continued toward York Hospital until flagging down a police officer for assistance. Correa was pronounced dead at the hospital, police said.
City police have obtained an arrest warrant for the alleged shooter, Ronald Lake, 29, who has a last known address in the 200 block of North Pine Street, police said.
An autopsy has been scheduled for Monday morning at Lehigh Valley Medical Center, York County Deputy Coroner Steve Cosey said.
Cathy Correa said her brother's death doesn't make sense.
"He wasn't a drug dealer or anything," she said. "He had no enemies."
Baby: Jerry Correa was born in Lancaster and was the youngest of 10 children.
"He was the baby of the family," Cathy Correa said.
His older brothers and sisters looked out for him and, as he grew older, Jerry Correa returned the favor.
Jerry Correa enjoyed playing pool and was a good player, Cathy Correa said.
"He had his own pool stick and everything," she said.
Since the shooting Cathy Correa said friends and family have been in an out of his home in the 300 block of Lindberg Avenue in York.
Family and friends from as far away as California, New Jersey and Florida stopped by pay their respects and talk about the Jerry Correa.
"It's been going on all day," his sister said.
