Philadelphia Police are investigating after a shooting involving two taxi cab drivers outside of Frankford Transportation Center in broad daylight Saturday afternoon. It happened around 2 p.m. at SEPTA's Frankford Station on the 5200 block of Frankford Ave in Northeast Philadelphia. Two drivers got into an argument over a fare and an altercation broke out. One cab driver pulled out a knife and the other taxi driver pulled out a gun. The one driver then shot three times, hitting the other driver in the head, neck, and stomach. SEPTA police arrested the shooter. The victim was taken to Aria-Torresdale Hospital. The driver with the gun has a permit to carry.

Authorities in Montgomery County are looking for a driver who left the scene after a 2-year-old was struck Saturday afternoon. The hit-and-run happened just before 5:00 p.m. at Spring Garden and Bannockburn Avenue in Ambler. The boy was playing in Knights Park and ran out into the street. He was hit by a dark gray Toyota 4Runner or other SUV which continued southbound on North Main Street. The boy was flown to Children's Hospital of Pennsylvania with serious but non life-threatening injuries.

The NBA announced the 14 finalists for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2017. The list includes legendary Villanova head coach Rollie Massimino, who led the Wildcats to the NCAA National Championship in 1985. The 82-year-old has had a long coaching career amassing 800 wins.
