Philadelphia police have arrested Pedro Redding for the brutal murder of transgender woman, Kiesha Jenkins, ABC 6 reports.
Jenkins was beaten and fatally shot in Philadelphia last week. She is the 18th transgender woman of color killed in the United States this year and the second transgender woman of color killed in Philly in the last five months.
Despite the wave of murders of transgender people across America, police are not calling Jenkins' death a hate crime. They say robbery was the assumed motive.
Police still looking for the other men involved in the Jenkins' death.
