The 16-year-old stayed at the house, on the 5300 block of Lindbergh Boulevard, and is likely to face charges of aggravated assault and related counts, Walker said. Police were still trying to figure out how he got a gun.

Earlier violence began around 2:31 a.m. Sunday, when police responded to the 3000 block of Ruth Street in Kensington and found Marisol Garcia-Infante, 41, dead next to her bed in a pool of blood.

About 12 hours later, on the 5700 block of McMahon Avenue in East Germantown, police found a man with gunshot wounds to the head and body. Authorities did not identify the victim, but they said he was pronounced dead at 2:57 p.m. Police announced no arrest or motive.

    There are now more than 35 options that aren't the state store. Well, that escalated quickly. Although there was a bit of a lag between when groceries actually implemented wine sales and when Gov. Tom Wolf put his stamp on Act 39 back in June 2016, things have ramped up immensely over the past six months.

    On Wednesday the sex positive community center proposed for the Tacony Music Hall was slated to go before the Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA). Instead it asked for a continuance, pushing the case back to May. Representatives of the Tacony Civic Association were in attendance at the hearing and muttered darkly about what the club's owners might be up to.
