Police are now investigating a double shooting that took place in the Frankford section of Philadelphia Tuesday night. The shooting took place on the 5000 block of Frankford Avenue at around 7:30 pm. Police arrived on scene to find a man in his 30's shot in the back and chest, he was taken to Aria Health Torresdale where he was later pronounced dead. A second man approximately 35, was found upon arrival and taken to Temple University Hospital where he is listed in critical condition. Police are still searching for the suspects and are investigating the motive for the shooting.

Police are investigating into a series of odd robberies that have taken place in Philadelphia since September. Two suspects, believed to be a man and a woman, have gone along a few blocks in the Kensington section of Philadelphia stealing the 1's and 0's off of the home's addresses. The neighborhood has nicknamed the duo "The Binary Bandits." Many residents believe the numbers were stolen as part of an art project. It seems though that the "bandits" had a change of heart. Overnight on Monday, a home on the 2200 block of Amber Street caught a video of an unmasked man dropping off a garbage bag on the front step of the home, then walking away. The homeowner found the bag the next morning containing the 1's and 0's stolen from the street. The man reported it to police right away and investigators are inspecting them to try and track down the suspects. There were 83 numbers total, 56 1's and 27 0's. The bandit(s) face charges including theft and criminal trespassing if caught. You can see video of the person returning the numbers below.

Actor Alan Thicke, best known for his role in the 80's sitcom "Growing Pains," has now died at the age of 69. His publicist stated that the actor died of a heart attack in Los Angeles. The Canadian-born actor was playing hockey with one of his sons at the time. Thicke's career in Hollywood was very vast, from acting, writing, producing, and even hosting a game show in the 70's and 80's. Thicke will be best remembered for playing psychiatrist Dr. Jason Seaver in the ABC 80's sitcom "Growing Pains." Thicke also produced a few television theme songs, including "Diff'rent Strokes" and "The Facts of Life," as well as the theme for "Wheel of Fortune." Thicke is survived by his wife and three children, one of them being Singer Robin Thicke.
