Group Armed With Guns (Fake?) Films at Rec Center; Fatal Hit-And-Run Arrest; Car Falls/Kills Man

Philadelphia Police released surveillance video showing a group of people apparently armed with guns breaking into the Sturgis Recreation Center to film a video. It happened around 11:30 a.m. Thursday, 1/30, at the rec center in East Oak Lane. A woman first gained access to the building. A short time later, a white minivan and a dark sedan arrived with more suspects. Video shows them inside and outside the building with alleged semi-automatic rifles. They stayed at the location for approximately two hours possibly filming music video. On Tuesday afternoon, 2/4, some of the men in the video have come forward saying that the guns seen in the police video were fake. The men showed off two toy guns, but they were missing the orange tips that usually make it easy to distinguish them as toys. They did acknowledge they did not have permission to use the recreation center to film their video and that was a mistake.

Philadelphia Police have arrested a man in connection to a deadly hit-and-run accident on North Broad Street that killed a woman last month. 21-year-old Todd Burton of Philadelphia is charged with accident involving death, homicide by vehicle, involuntary manslaughter, tampering with evidence, and recklessly endangering another person. It happened before 4 a.m. January 12th at the intersection of Broad Street and Lehigh Avenue. 27-year-old Tiffany Reed was crossing Broad Street when she was struck by Burton. Burton fled the scene. Reed was taken to Albert Einstein Medical Center where she was later pronounced dead.

A Bucks County man was killed when a vehicle he was working on suddenly fell on him on Monday evening, 2/3. It happened around 7 p.m. on the 4600 block of Newportville Road in Bristol Township. The 28-year-old man was working under his car in his driveway when the jack failed and the vehicle dropped on top of him. Emergency responders removed him from under the vehicle but were not able to revive him. He was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity has not been released. The accident is under investigation.

The Philadelphia Phillies announced that they will retire the late Roy Halladay's number 34. The ceremony will take place before the May 29th game at Citizens Bank Park against the Washington Nationals. That date is the 10th anniversary of Halladay's perfect game. He joins a select group of other Phillies greats with their number displayed in Asburn Alley including Richie Asburn (1), Robin Roberts (36), Steve Carlton (32), Mike Schmidt (20), and Jim Bunning (14). Major League Baseball retired Jackie Robinson (42). A six foot high No. 34 statue will be displayed in the Third Base Plaza like the other retired number statues that were added to the Left Field Plaza. As a Phillie, Halladay was a 2x All-Star, won a Cy Young Award, pitched a perfect game and a post season no-hitter. He was posthumously inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame last summer.
