1 in custody in Philadelphia shooting outside Target store


Police said a person is in custody in the shooting outside a Target store in northeast Philadelphia that wounded a man.

A police spokesman said Saturday that the 29-year-old victim was driving to the store in the Rhawnhurst section of the city at about 3:30 p.m. Friday when he saw a friend involved in a physical altercation.

Police said the suspect pulled out a gun and fired about seven times, hitting the victim in the back, and then fled in a red sedan. The victim was taken to Aria-Jefferson Health Torresdale, where he was in stable condition Saturday.

Police said someone surrendered to police shortly before noon Saturday but wasn't being identified "pending formal charges."

    I catch the subway to Center City in this section of Philly every day. It's pretty much heroin alley anymore. You can't get on or off the train without being panhandled by someone wanting money for "food". When you offer to buy them a sandwich, they decline (I've tried). It's a very sad and violent place.

    Poorly written news report. Better separation and identification of the three people involved needs to be done.

    Must be pretty sure his friend didn't start the fight. Is the victim going to be okay?

    ....Good, punks like this don't value human life. That's the problem. They are culturally conditioned to disvalue human life. They are uneducated.
