Teen Gunman Died From Police Gunfire, Not Suicide; Acquittal in FDR Tailgate Murder; Fran Dunphy LaS

Philadelphia Police say that a teen gunman, who shot a SEPTA police officer and three others in the Frankford neighborhood this past week, died from police gunfire and not a self-inflicted gunshot as earlier reported. 18-year-old Zyhiem Hartman was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head inside a unit of the Renehan House Apartments on the 4700 block of Leiper Street. Investigators initially believed Hartman's death was a suicide and that he had shot himself while barricaded inside, but the medical examiner's office determined that the fatal shot had come from police gunfire during the shootout. It started around 7 p.m. when patrolling officers heard gunshots near Arrott and Griscom Streets. Officers chased Hartman until he barricaded himself in an apartment. Hartman exchanged gunfire with police from that apartment. During the incident, SEPTA Officer Ervis Onuzi was shot. Two women and a man were also shot. All four are expected to be ok.

"As part of the ongoing investigation, it is currently believed that the decedent's gunshot wound to the head was not self-inflicted, and was caused by shots fired from discharging officers at some point during the exchange of gunfire between the decedent and discharging officers," police said in a statement.

A man accused of killing the son of a Philadelphia Police chief inspector in FDR Park following a Phillies game in 2019 was found not guilty by a jury on Thursday, 4/6. Tyquan Atkinson, now 22, was acquitted of all counts including murder. It happened on March 29, 2019, in FDR Park in South Philly. Two groups of people got involved in altercations while tailgating after the game. Flacco, who was not involved, was shot in the chest by a man. Prosecutors presented video of the brawl, cell phone location evidence, and numerous witness that identified Atkinson as the shooter. Atkinson took the stand in his own defense and said that he was not at the park at the time of the shooting. He said he did drive by at some point that night and saw the police activity which would account for his cell phone ping. The defense pointed out inconsistencies in the witnesses' testimony. A power outage at the CDC delayed the reading of the verdict on Thursday afternoon.
