Philadelphia Police now say that a suspect is being charged in Friday night's shooting that killed a 3-year-old girl and injured three adults in Grays Ferry. 22-year-old Douglas Woods of Point Breeze is being charged with Murder, 3 counts of Attempted Murder, Aggravated Assault, Violation of Uniform Firearms Act and related offenses. The shooting occurred at 9:40 pm Friday on the 1500 block of South Etting Street. An argument between Woods and 24-year-old man led to Woods pulling a gun and firing. That man was shot in the head and is in critical condition at Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania where he underwent surgery on Saturday. Stray bullets hit three other victims. 3-year-old Tamika Borum was sitting on a porch having her hair braided by 28-year-old Sherita Dickens when she was hit in the chest. She died at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Dickens was shot in the arm and a 21-year-old man was shot in the leg. The neighborhood rallied today asking for a stop to the violence calling for everyone to put the guns down. A memorial has been growing at the porch were Tamika was shot.

A Philadelphia was sentenced today to 3-6 years in state prison for a cable scam that cost Comcast $2.4 million in lost revenue. 30-year-old Alston Buchanan pled guilty back in April to his role as the ringleader in the scheme or as he described himself 'Robin Hood.' Buchanan had over two dozen people working for his enterprise. They would offer current Comcast customers a chance to pay a one-time fee to have their bills reduced. Buchanan, a former Comcast employee, would hack into the Comcast system and apply a discount code to the customer's account so they would get reduced rates. They would charge customers $100-200 upfront for the reduction. The whole scheme grew to involve 5,795 Comcast cable subscribers from Philadelphia and the suburbs and made them $400,000 to $600,000. They were eventually caught in August 2012 when they approached a Comcast employee with the scam.

Delaware County authorities were out searching in a Springfield park again Saturday after a murder suspect confessed to killing two other people and led police to where he allegedly buried them. 30-year-old John Gonce, already behind bars on a variety of other charges, contacted Upper Darby Police on Friday to confess to the February 2012 murders. He says he stabbed a female prostitute and a male pimp inside his Secane apartment, dismembered their bodies, and buried them in Springfield's 20-acre Indian Rock Park. Authorities searched Friday night and again on Saturday but have not found anything yet. Gonce was already in custody awaiting trial for the July 2012 murders of brothers 13-year-old Rohan Bennett and 17-year-old Christopher Malcom in Overbrook. He is also awaiting trial for the rape of a teenage girl in Maryland and a home invasion in Upper Darby. Upper Darby Superintendent Michael Chitwood said that Gonce just wanted to clear his conscious.
