    Long-awaited Rail Park opens first phase
    The opening of Philadelphia 's long-awaited Rail Park means more than just a public green space. To many, it means residential development, it means commercial growth, and-possibly most importantly-it means a heightened sense of community in Philly's Center City. At least that's the takeaway city officials stressed Thursday morning during the opening of the park's first phase.

The shooting was one of two that occurred in Philly Friday night. Only 15 minutes before the shooting that took Walker's life, a gunman opened fire on the 3800 block of N. Percy Street.

Police say two male suspects wearing ski masks and dark clothing fled south on Percy Street toward Butler Street after the shooting.

    Allissa Jackson painfully recounted the last call she made to her son, 16-year-old Symir Walker. "The last call I made to my son was to tell him to come home because I had heard two pops," Jackson said. "But it didn't sound like gunfire but I just wanted him on the block, in my company where I could see him.
