17-year old Allentown boy shot to death in his bed

Kareem Fedd, age 17
17-year old Kareem Fedd was asleep in his Allentown, Pennsylvania home when an intruder apparently entered through an open window and shot him multiple times, killing Kareem, before escaping.

From an article:
"It seemed to me he was shot sleeping," Sabbagh said this morning, still appearing slightly dazed. "It was a shock." 
Kareem Fedd, 17, was pronounced dead 4:23 a.m. at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Salisbury Township, according to Allentown police Assistant Chief Joe Hanna
Police have not identified any suspects or a motive. Hanna said Friday night police are confident the incident was not random.
Sabbagh said Fedd's bed was next a window, which the boy's mother told him had been left open. He believes the shooter accessed it via a fire escape.

Gang involvement is suspected by the police, as also suggested by the photo (hand signals and the necklace).
