2 Philadelphia Shootings Spark 2 More Deaths

POSTED: 6:19 am EST January 8, 2007
UPDATED: 9:57 am EST January 8, 2007

Police said two people were shot and killed in Philadelphia overnight.

A man in his mid-20s was shot multiple times around 2:30 a.m. on the 5900 block of Warrington Avenue in Southwest Philadelphia, according to homicide investigators. They did not release the victim’s name, but said he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Just a little more than an hour earlier, an unidentified man died from wounds he suffered in a late Sunday night shooting that took place in North Philadelphia underneath a railroad overpass, police said.

The victim, a man in his 40s, was shot at 25th and Dauphin streets around 11:30 p.m. Sunday and was pronounced dead at Temple University Hospital about an hour before the Southwest Philadelphia fatal shooting.

Police said they have not made arrests in either homicide case. The two overnight shootings push the number of homicides in Philadelphia to 11 in 2007, according to NBC 10 records.

Philly Murder Rate "Disturbing"

By Dann Cuellar

March 12, 2007 - Many believe the murder rate in Philadelphia is spiraling out of control. And the big question is what can be done to stem the tide?

Action News has been reporting on the homicide problem in the city, but a number of us were taken aback when we compared Philadelphia Police homicide numbers with those of NYPD, LAPD and Chicago PD. The crisis is clearly on the radar screen at City Hall where, amongst members of Mayor John Street's administration, the homicide rate has been the topic of the day.

John Street told those in attendance Monday, "It's a real tragedy, I mean it is a real tragedy!"

Mayor John Street was showing his frustration Monday night as he summoned key members of his administration including the police commissioner and others to discuss the continuing rise in homicides.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Sylvester Johnson said, "The numbers are disturbing, and we will try everything we can to stop it."

An Action News survey found that Philadelphia has a significantly higher number of homicides this year than America's three largest cities. As of 5pm, Philadelphia had recorded 76 homicides for the year, compared with 66 in New York City, 59 in Los Angeles and 53 in Chicago.

"It is very disturbing to myself obviously, to other police officers who serve the City of Philadelphia, and we will continue to go out there and do everything we can to improve the quality of life in this city," said Johnson.

A recent study by the Police Executive Research Forum, a Washington-based law enforcement think tank, found that Philadelphia - like many other major cities - has seen a continuing rise in homicides since 2004. In that year, Philadelphia recorded 330 homicides, 377 in 2005, and 404 in 2006. Mayor Street's critics contend that hiring more cops is part of the answer.

Street commented by saying, "Trust me, if we could hire another 300 or 400, 500 officers and if we thought that would end it, we would have hired them years ago, unfortunately it's not quite so simple."

Instead, the mayor contends it's a social problem that needs the involvement of all. He agrees with others, like Phil Goldsmith who last week became President of Cease-Fire Pennsylvania, that we desperately need tougher gun laws.

Goldsmith is quoted as saying, "Until we start to minimize the easy availability of hand guns, we're (going to) continue down this road. I don't think it's the only answer but frankly, I think it's the cheapest answer." In an extraordinary move, Goldsmith says he joined the NRA last week to emphasize that people of different mindsets have to come together to solve this problem.

What's clear is this: two years' worth of double digit increases in homicides demonstrates an unmistakable pattern in the extent and nature of crime.

Shootings leave trail of blood across city
By REGINA MEDINA

One of the dead, Juan Rosa, 32, of Feltonville, was shot multiple times in Philadelphia on Wednesday, probably died Thursday, and his body was found in Trenton the next day, police said. It was wrapped in plastic and discovered behind a home on Hampton Avenue in Trenton. Police had no other details.

Shortly after 9:30 p.m. Friday, Andrew Strimel, 19, was shot once in the head and twice in the right hand inside his vehicle parked at Jasper and Lippincott streets, said Homicide Sgt. William Gallagher.

Investigators believe that Strimel had argued with someone before he got into the car. He was pronounced dead at Temple University Hospital at 11:50 a.m. Saturday.

Hours earlier, James Alford was shot multiple times in the chest on Yewdall Street in West Philadelphia and died at 12:37 a.m.

About 9 a.m. Saturday, police found Terrence Eddings, 28, shot to death in an apartment building on Chestnut Street near 12th in Center City. He had been shot in the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene, said Sgt. Ron McClane.

Another man was wounded in the incident, he said.

Police charged Solomon Esangbedo, 22, with murder and related crimes, McClane said. Esangbedo lives in the apartment and the two struggled before the shot was fired, he said. (Update: Esangbedo was acquitted of all charges on Dec. 18, 2008, court records show.)

Just before 1 p.m., a 31-year-old man was killed while watching a pickup basketball game on a court at Kenderton Elementary School, 15th Street near Tioga, McClane said.

Police said Demond Brown was found on the ground shortly after 1 p.m. with gunshot wounds to the back.

Brown was taken to Temple University Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 1:13 p.m.

By the time police arrived at the basketball court, "most people had fled the area," McClane said.

Later in the day, police found Fatima Whitfield, of Toronto Street near Broad, dead inside an apartment on Allegheny Avenue near 15th Street. She had been shot in the face about 4:45 p.m., said Gallagher.

Hours later, a 42-year-old man was shot multiple times in the back on McKean Street near 48th. The man, not immediately identified, was pronounced dead about 10:20 p.m. Saturday, police said.

The city's 125th homicide was Kevin Morton, 42, who was found dead at 10:25 p.m. Saturday on Harley Terrace near 56th Street, shot multiple times in the torso, Gallagher said. *

Default Weekend Murder Toll Hits 7

http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/story?se...cal&id=5233900

Weekend Murder Toll Hits 7

PHILADELPHIA - April 22, 2007 - Philadelphia's murder rate continues to climb.

Police say the city is up to 127 homicides as of late Sunday night. That includes seven fatal shootings since midnight Friday, and at least seven other people have been injured in shootings or stabbings this weekend.

Homicide detective Ron McClane says the spike in killings could be partially due to the warm weather, which brings out more people.

Police have only charged one suspect in just one of the cases.

Last year, the city had a total of 406 homicides -- the highest number in nearly a decade.

Philadelphia will exceed that number this year if the current pace continues.

Default 10 Dead After Warm Weekend

10 Dead After Warm Weekend
Police Say Higher Temps Could Spark Higher Homicide Numbers


POSTED: 7:00 am EDT April 23, 2007
UPDATED: 5:48 pm EDT April 23, 2007

After a violent weekend in Philadelphia, homicide detectives have 10 new cases to work on, with one investigator saying the warm weather could have something to do with the spike in city killings.

A 20-year-old man was shot and killed around 10:30 p.m. in the Northeast section of Philadelphia Sunday, according to investigators.

Rafael Valez, of the 4800 block of North Fourth Street, was shot and killed on the 100 block of West Roosevelt Boulevard.





The fatal shooting rounded out a weekend of violence in Philadelphia, during which 10 people were killed; five of the homicides occurred within 24 hours, police said.

Fatimah Whitfield, 28, was killed on Saturday in an abandoned apartment in the 1500 block of West Allegheny Avenue. She was from the 1300 block of West Toronto Street.

Ida Pittman said she would raise Whitfield’s two children. Pittman said that she and Whitfield were friends.

"We need this to stop," Pittman said. "People getting killed, people not saying anything. Somebody knows who did this."

Andrew Strimel, 19, of the 1800 block of East Lippencott Street, was killed on Saturday on the 3100 block of Jasper Street.

"These murders have to stop," said Janice Striemel, the mother of the victim. "He was just getting out of a car when someone rode up on a bike and shot him in the head."

There was also another homicide Sunday night in a different part of the city.

Sterling Almond, 18, was shot and killed during a shooting spree in the Logan section of Philadelphia on Sunday night, about a half hour before the Northeast Philadelphia homicide.

Almond lived on the 1900 block of West Haines Street and was killed on the 200 block of East Bringhurst Street, police said.

Authorities said a bullet struck two other people during the Logan shooting, but they didn't release their names or ages. Both were listed in stable condition on Monday.

Before the Northeast and Logan shootings, homicide detectives already had their hands full.

By Sunday afternoon, they were investigating five fatal shootings in a span of less than 24 hours. Homicide detective Ron McClane said the spike in killings could be partially due to the warm weather, which brings more people out.

The recent spate of seven homicides began at about 10 p.m. Friday and continued until late Sunday night. Police have charged a suspect in one of the cases, and blamed community silence as the stifling force behind a lack of charges.

Authorities said they also now believe the killing of 32-year-old Juan Rosa of Hunting Park occurred in Philadelphia. He was shot several times, and his body was found Thursday night wrapped in plastic and dumped behind a Hampton Avenue home in Trenton.

Last year, the city had a total of 406 homicides -- the highest number in nearly a decade, but Philadelphia will exceed that number this year if the current pace continues, detectives said.

There were also multiple other violent incidents that left citizens injured during the weekend.

Four teenagers were in the hospital after investigators said they were stabbed at a carnival Sunday night in Wissinoming. Police said they have one person in custody and the injured teens, between the ages of 13 and 15, were all stabbed in the back. They were listed in stable condition.

Four more teenagers -- ranging in age from 13 to 17 -- were shot just before 10 p.m. in North Philadelphia near the intersection of North 28th and Huntingdon streets. The gunman was not captured.

Police shot a teenager they said they believed was involved in a stealing spree. The teen allegedly pointed a gun at officers Sunday night in West Philadelphia on North Alden Street. He was hospitalized in critical condition with two bullet wounds.

Here are the other recent homicide victims:

Victor Dash, 29, of the 900 block of Carver Street, was shot and killed Friday on the 3100 block of Euclid Avenue.

James Alford, 29, of the 800 block of West 69th Street, was killed Saturday on the 600 block of South Yewall Street.

Demond Brown, 31, of the 3500 block of North 18th Street, was killed on the 3400 block of North 15th Street on Saturday.

Terrence Eddings, 28, of North Carlisle Street, was also killed on Saturday. He was slain on the 1200 block of Chestnut Street.

An unidentified man was killed on the 4800 block of McKean Avenue on Saturday, and Kevin Morton, 30, of the 4700 block of Tackawanna Street, was killed on the 5400 block of Harley Terrace.

7 Murders in Phila. During Weekend

PHILADELPHIA - May 21, 2007 - Philadelphia homicide detectives are dealing with the aftermath, of a violent weekend. At least seven people have been murdered since Friday.

Seventeen-year-old Reginald Ford was killed in North Philadelphia, Sunday morning just before noon. Someone shot him on the 1500 block of York Street. He had converted to Islam after his brother was shot to death eight months ago.

Hours later, and just a block away, more shots rang out. Bullets hit and killed a man who was visiting his family and a woman waiting at a bus stop. The man didn't survive. The woman is listed in stable condition.

Police are investigating whether the two shootings on York Street are connected.

A few hours later, two innocent victims - a
woman waiting for a bus stop, and a 54 year old man - were caught in the cross fire of a gun battle.

The man, Ronald Canell, died from a bullet wound to the head. He was in the neighborhood visiting relatives.

The woman survived with a leg wound.

So far, police don't have any suspects or motives in any of the shootings.
