Philadelphia Police have arrested a man in the fatal shooting of a pregnant woman and death of her unborn child in North Philadelphia last week. 21-year-old Razique Bumpas of the 4000 block of Maywood Street was arrested on Monday, 2/24, and is charged with the murder of both 39-year-old Ishan Charmidah Rahman and her unborn baby boy. The shooting happened on Friday, 2/21, just before 6 p.m. near 9th and Dauphin Streets. Rahman and her fiance were sitting in a minivan when police say Bumpas opened fire on the vehicle. Rahman was shot in the chest and her fiance was shot in the chest and shoulder. Despite being wounded, he drove them to Temple University Hospital. Rahman died shortly after arrival. Doctors performed an emergency C-section but were not able to save the baby. The fiance is being treated for his wounds. Bumpas is charged with criminal conspiracy, possession of an instrument of crime, violations of the firearms act, and two counts of first-degree murder.

UPDATE: According to court documents, Bumpas had just been arraigned on 2/18 for strangulation, aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, and false imprisonment. He was released on 10% of $30,000 bail.

A 27-year-old man was killed in a hit-and-run accident in North Philadelphia near Temple University's campus on Monday evening, 2/24. It happened around 8:30 p.m. on 8th Street near Cecil B. Moore Avenue. The man was hit by a dark colored sedan speeding in the wrong direction on the one way street. He was pronounced dead at the scene. He was a part-time student at Temple. Police found a Hyundai parked just three blocks away at 8th and Berks with heavy front end damage and a smashed windshield. Investigators believe this is the vehicle from the accident. They are looking at surveillance from the area. If you have any information, call police at 215-686-TIPS.

UPDATE: The victim has been identified as 27-year-old Ajay Agnihotri of Reinholds, Lancaster County. He was a fourth-year student in the College of Liberal Arts. He was a double major in political science and economics.

One man is dead and another is critically injured after a double shooting in West Philadelphia on Monday night. It happened around 10:30 p.m. near 52nd and Sansom Streets near a McDonald's restaurant. Police say that 39-year-old man Brent Swearingen was shot in the chest and leg. He was rushed to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center by police were he was pronounced dead at 11 p.m. A 31-year-old man was also rushed to the hospital and remains in critical condition. Real-time crime cameras captured two shooters following the victims. "The cameras recorded the two shooters following the two victims and in area of 52nd and Sansom, at the corner, that's where we know at least seven shots were fired," Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said, "The shooter or shooters walked right up on to these two individuals and fired shots from very close range." No arrests have been made.

A man was arrested on Tuesday morning, 2/25, outside of a Montgomery County school for threatening to shoot children. It happened around 7:30 a.m. at St. Paul's Nursery School and Day Care Center on the 800 block of Church Road in Oreland, Springfield Township. A man, described as homeless, attempted to gain access to the school but was turned away. He then approached a car in the parking lot that was dropping off a child at the school and made some inappropriate remarks and threats. Police arrived and placed him under arrest for making Terroristic Threats. No one was harmed and there is no threat to the school.
