Undercover Officer Who Shot 12-yo Fired; Co-Worker Charged in Triple Stabbing; Philly School Masks

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw announced on Tuesday, 3/8, that the plainclothes officer that fatally shot a 12-year-old boy last week in South Philadelphia will be fired. The four officers involved in the incident have not been identified. It happened around 7:24 on March 1 in the area of 18th and Barbara Streets. "Based off the evidence I reviewed, it's clear that the use of force policy was violated," Outlaw said. "All use of force has to be proportionate to the resistance they are trying to overcome. I will also tell you that our policy states excessive force will not be tolerated. That's the gist of what we're talking about." Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said, "The death of a child is always a tragedy, and in this instance, a factually complex and deeply troubling one based on preliminary investigative information," Krasner said in a statement. "As prosecutors, we have a duty to seek justice by following the facts and law, wherever they lead us. Philadelphians are owed a comprehensive and transparent accounting of all activity surrounding the circumstances of young Thomas Siderio’s death and an unbiased and thorough investigation. When it is appropriate for us to do so, we will disclose findings of our currently active investigation and decision on whether or not to pursue any criminal charges."

A New York man, identified as a co-worker, has been charged in the stabbing of a woman and her two sons in their Mayfair home on Sunday afternoon, 3/6. 39-year-old Hengjian Ni is charged with simple assault, aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person, attempted murder, attempted rape, possessing instruments of crime, and burglary. It happened around 2 p.m. on the 3200 block of Knorr Street. Ni is accused of stabbing a 37-year-old multiple times, a 15-year-old boy twice in the back of his head, and a 10-year-old boy in the back of his head and once in his left leg. They were all taken to Frankford-Torresdale Hospital. The mother is in critical condition while the boys were placed in stable condition. Ni turned himself into police later that afternoon. No word on a possible motive.

Starting Wednesday March 9, masks will be optional in all Philadelphia schools. Students and staff at all public and archdiocesan schools will not longer have to wear mask unless they chose, except those in PreK Head Start programs. Masks will have to be worn again for one week after spring break to to avoid a post break surge in cases.
