Sharon Hill Voted to Fire 3 Officers; Restaurant to Reopen After Hep A Scare; Philly Fire Ladder Law

The Sharon Hill Borough Council voted 6-1 to fire three police officers charged in the shooting death of an 8-year-old girl outside of a high school football game last summer. Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer announced manslaughter charges against 41-year-old Brian James Devaney, 25-year-old Sean Patrick Dolan, and 34-year-old Devon E. Smith earlier this week along with other offenses. 8-year-old Fanta Bility was struck and killed by gunfire as she exited the Academy Park high school stadium following a game on August 27. Three others were also injured. In September, Stollsteimer announced that officials "now concluded beyond a reasonable doubt that it was, in fact, shots from the officers that struck and killed Fanta Bility and injured three others." This week he said, "These officers made a split-second decision to return fire. We trust them to get that decision right and they got it horribly wrong." They were taken into custody on Tuesday, 1/18, on $500,000 bail.

The Montgomery County Office of Public Health has lifted a closure order on a West Norriton restaurant following a fatal Hepatitis A outbreak. Gino's Ristorante & Pizzeria was closed on January 7 as health officials conducted their investigation. The restaurant was thoroughly inspected on Thursday, 1/20, and allowed to reopen. The county says that Hepatitis A was traced back to the restaurant in late November when the outbreak started. They do not know if it was from a sick person or contaminated food. There is no trace of it now and the staff has been tested and vaccinated. Thirteen cases of Hepatitis A were under investigation. 10 of those were confirmed. Seven people had to be hospitalized and three people died.

Philadelphia City Council President Darrell Clarke introduced new legislation on Thursday, 1/20, to encourage landlords in the city to install life saving upgrades. The new bill would give property owners a tax credit for installing fire escapes or window-based fire ladders. Twelve people were killed in a fire in Fairmount earlier this month in a Philadelphia Housing Authority home. Philadelphia code only requires one means of egress or path outside in a 1-2 family property, usually the front door. Most of the victims in the Fairmount fire were trapped on the third floor. A fire ladder out the window could have helped them escape.
