The Pennsylvania Department of Corrections is now quarantining the over 44,000 inmates throughout the state prison system after an inmate at SCI Phoenix in Montgomery County tested positive for coronavirus COVID-19 on Sunday, 3/29. Inmates will forced to practice social distancing and movment will be controlled. They will be fed in their cells and get in-cell programming. They will be allowed out for video visits, phone calls, and access to the law library. There are almost 44,600 inmates in 25 facilities statewide. County prisons are not affected.

Philadelphia police responded to the report of a shooting and a man with a gun in Holmesburg on Sunday night, 3/29. It happened just before 11 p.m. at the Kendrick Court Apartments on the 4400 block of Kendrick Street. When police tried to make contact with the man inside his apartment he would not come out. He started firing at police who then returned fire. Eventually the standoff ended and officers were able to make it in side. "The male was struck in both arms and in the chest," Philadelphia Police Staff Inspector Sekou Kinebrew said. "What we don’t know is if the discharge by the SWAT officers were what struck the male. Because, again, the call came out as a person already shot. What we know at this point, is that three SWAT officers discharged at least one time." He was taken to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital in critical condition.

A man was found shot and killed on the the Market-Frankford line in Kensington early Monday morning, 3/30. It happened around 12:50 a.m. on a westbound train near the station at Kensington and Allegheny avenues. SEPTA Police found the 41-year-old man dead from a single gun shot wound to the head lying on the floor of the train. There was no one else on the train. Police are looking for a group of four or five that got off the train at a previous station. They are reviewing surveillance footage.

The Tokyo Olympics have now been rescheduled for July 23 - August 8, 2021. The Paralympics will be held from August 24 September 5, 2021.
