Philadelphia Police have identified three suspects who have been arrested in connection to a shooting outside a rec center on Tuesday night, 8/16, in West Philadelphia. 24-year-old Tahmir Pickney, 22-year-old Marlon Spurell, and 22-year-old Azyear Sutton-Walker have all been charged with attempted murder, conspiracy, firearm carried without a license, aggravated assault, and related offenses. It happened just before 7 p.m. outside the Shepard Recreation Center at 57th Street and Haverford Avenue in the Haddington neighborhood. The suspects opened fire from a 2018 white Dodge Durango SUV. Police say that 96 shots were fired. 5 men were injured by the gunfire. A 21-year-old and another man were shot in the head and are in extremely critical condition. A 22-year-old man shot once in the right hand, a 25-year-old man with a graze wound to the right shoulder, and a 17-year-old male with a graze wound are in stable condition. The three suspects were arrested after crashing their vehicle a short distance from the shooting. Multiple rifles and handguns were recovered.

A block captain was shot and injured after confronting a group of thieves attempting to steal a catalytic converter from a parked van in Germantown early Wednesday morning, 8/17. It happened around 5 a.m. on the 6300 block of Germantown Avenue. The block captain and the owner of the van approached three thieves while the trio was actively cutting the part from under the vehicle. They ran away and the block captain chased after them. One of the thieves turned and fired. The captain, a man in his 50s, was struck in the chest. He was taken to Einstein Medical Center in critical condition. He is expected to survive. Police recovered a saw and other tools from around the van. They hope to pull fingerprint and/or DNA evidence from those items. Catalytic converter theft has risen sharply in the past few year due to the value of certain metals inside the component.

A woman was struck and killed by a SEPTA bus in Germantown on Wednesday night, 8/17. It happened around 9:30 p.m. on the 100 block of West Walnut Lane near Greene Street. The 71-year-old woman was in the crosswalk walking southbound across Greene Street. The bus had stopped to drop off passengers and proceeded to drive eastbound on Walnut Lane. The woman was hit by the front passenger corner of the bus and fell onto the roadway. She was then dragged 50-60 feet from the intersection. The 63-year-old bus driver stopped the bus and remained at the scene. She was severely injured and was unresponsive when fire and medics arrived. The woman was taken to Einstein Medical Center where she was pronounced dead. Investigators say that reports that the victim may have be struck by a hit-and-run driver and left in the road before the bus have been ruled out. Her identity has not been released, but police say she lived only a block from the accident location. Police are looking into video from the SEPTA bus, no word on possible charges on the driver.
