A teenage woman is dead and a man was critically injured, in a quadruple shooting in broad daylight on Wednesday afternoon, 2/19, in North Philadelphia. It happened around 3:40 p.m. at 11th and Thompson Streets across the street from St. Malachy Catholic School. School had already let out for the day. Two men came around the corner and started shooting. A 23-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman were both shot in the head. A 23-year-old man was shot in the left leg and a 25-year-old man was shot in the right arm. Those two are in stable condition. All four arrived at Temple University Hospital. Police say that around 20 shots were fired. 19-year-old Yaniyah Foster was rushed to the hospital by police but died after arrival. The three injured men were taken to the hospital in civilian vehicles. Those cars were searched by police upon arrival and two guns were found that matched the type of rounds fired at the scene. "Too many guns, too many people willing to use them. At the end of the day, police can't stop," Philadelphia City Council President Darrell Clarke said.

UPDATE: Yaniyah Foster was sitting on her front steps when she was shot. The 23-year-old man shot in his head was a bystander sitting in his car. He is in critical condition. Police believe that some of the victims shot back while they were running away. They think that the 25-year-old injured man shot in the arm may have been one of the initial shooters. Police have two in custody for questioning.

The Burlington County Prosecutor's Office announced that the father of a 4-year-old boy who shot and killed himself has been charged in the boy's death. 31-year-old Andrew Mack of Browns Mills is charged with endangering the welfare of a child and improperly storing a weapon with minors nearby. It happened on Friday, 2/7, around 7 p.m. in their home on Maricopa Trail. Prosecutors say that Mack was asleep in a bedroom with a loaded 9mm handgun next to him. 4-year-old Lincoln Mack came into the room and took the gun into another room where he was playing with a younger sister. That is where he shot himself in the face. The boy was rushed to the hospital where he later died. Both parents and two siblings were in the home at the time of the shooting.

The man who was acquitted in the fatal stabbing of a real estate developer in Rittenhouse Square was sentenced in another case on Wednesday, 2/19. Michael White pled guilty to stealing a University of Pennsylvania police bicycle. He was sentenced to two years probation. White was previously sentenced to probation after being convicted for tampering with evidence in the stabbing of Sean Schellenger. Both probation sentences will run concurrently.
