Suspect in Haverford Twp. killing, Overbrook Park shooting arrested in Georgia

This all began around 5 p.m. Saturday, July 29th, in the 1600 block of North 77th Street.

Police say they found the car, and the driver, at 77th and Sherwood and the homeowner confronted him. It led to an argument, and Rollins allegedly pulled out a gun and fired 17 shots at the two men. They flee the area, leaving the city and enter Haverford Township.

    So Long, Summer: Philly Pools Are Already Closing
    It feels like just yesterday we told you Philly public pools were open. And now, two months after swimming season kicked off, we're lamenting its end. It might seem early (it always does,) but Parks and Rec started shutting down public pools on August 11th, and by Friday, they'll all be closed.
