Philadelphia union leader John 'Johnny Doc' Dougherty resigned his position as business manager of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 98 following his conviction of conspiracy and fraud. 61-year-old Dougherty had led IBEW Local 98 for nearly 30 years. The Executive Board elected safety director 35-year-old Mark Lynch to serve as interim Business Manager. "I made this difficult but necessary decision to resign as Business Manager for the good of this union that has been my life's work and passion," Dougherty said in the statement. "I am leaving Local 98 in an incredibly strong position, financially and otherwise." Dougherty will be sentenced in February. He still faces a second trial on charges that he embezzled $600,000 from Local 98. Philadelphia City Councilman Bobby Henon, who was convicted alongside Dougherty, does not have to legally resign until he is sentenced in February.

A teenager was shot and killed by armed robbers while walking with his girlfriend near Temple University's campus early Tuesday morning, 11/16. It happened around 2:15 a.m. Tuesday on the 1700 block of Cecil B. Moore Avenue in North Philadelphia. 18-year-old Ahmir Jones was with his girlfriend when they were approached by two armed men. "They put both the male and female against the wall. They went through their pockets. They took the female's cellphone. And according to the female, for no reason, they fired a shot striking this 18-year-old victim in the chest," Philadelphia Chief Inspector Scott Small said. The suspects then fled. He was taken to Temple Hospital where he died around 4 a.m. Jones was not a Temple student.

Philadelphia Police and PennDOT are investigating after nearly two dozen vehicles crashed on Tuesday morning, 11/16, on the Roosevelt Boulevard. It happened after 5 a.m. in the southbound lanes of the Roosevelt Boulevard Extension near Broad Street. Officials believe that a construction crew sprayed water on the roadway which then froze. The black ice caused 15-20 vehicles to crash. The expressway was closed for several hours creating congested roadways in the surrounding area. There were no reported injuries. The investigation continues.
