Posted by: Matt McKinney Updated: June 27, 2014 - 5:06 PM

Hoping to offset the costs that his family will face in the weeks ahead, friends of homicide victim Steve Martin, 37, established a fund in his name this week. 

Martin, a father of nine, was shot to death Monday night during a street fight on Penn Avenue North that his friends said he was trying to break up. The construction worker was hit in the neck by a bullet and died about half an hour later at the hospital. He lived with his wife, Nicole, and their children a few blocks away.

His death remains under investigation. No immediate arrests were made.

Funeral arrangements have not yet been announced.
