Community College of Philadelphia Lockdown/Arrest; Transgender Attack/Murder; Assault After Accident
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

The Community College of Philadelphia was put on lockdown and students told to shelter in place around 9:30 a.m. as Philadelphia Police searched for a man seen with a gun near campus at 17th and Spring Garden Streets. Two men were having an argument outside the Winnet Student Life Building when one pulled out a gun and then fled into a nearby building. About two hours later, authorities found and caught the 17-year-old suspect hiding in the business school building, but he no longer had the weapon. They say the boy and the other man, who is a student at CCP, knew each other and had a long standing dispute. This was a personal altercation that escalated but still had everyone on alert following yesterday's threat of mass violence on a Philadelphia university. The school was dismissed for the rest of the day as Police searched for a gun.

Philadelphia Police are investigating the murder of a North Philadelphia transgender woman early on Tuesday morning. 22-year-old Kiesha Jenkins was dropped off near 13th and Wingohocking streets around 2:30 a.m. in the city's Logan section. She was approached and attacked by about five males. When she fell to the ground one of the males pulled out a gun and shot her twice in the back as they fled. Jenkins was transported to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. Police are not sure of the motive, whether it was robbery or something else. They say it is too early in the investigation to tell if it was a hate crime. Anyone with information should call Philadelphia Police at 215-686-3334.

A 3-year-old boy is still in critical condition after being struck by a car on Monday evening in the Logan section of Philadelphia. It happened at 5:26 p.m. on the 1200 block of Wagner Avenue. The boy darted out between two parked cars, was hit, and briefly stuck underneath a car. The driver immediately stopped and tried to help the boy, but found himself confronted by a group of men from the neighborhood. The driver was not seriously injured in the assault. The boy was taken to Einstein Medical Center. No charges have been filed.

Partly Cloudy, temperatures falling through the 60s this evening in Center City
