Police locate alleged getaway car in shooting of bride and father; registered to ex-wife

Officers were called shortly before 10:30 p.m. Sunday night after gunfire erupted in the 5800 block of Hadfield Street.

Monday night police said they located the getaway car used in the crime just blocks from the scene, at Cobbs Creek and Thomas avenues.

    Police: Getaway car found in shooting of bride and father
    Police are investigating a shooting in Southwest Philadelphia that left a father and his daughter, who is pregnant with twins, seriously wounded. For Fred Waring, Sunday was supposed to be a happy day-- his youngest daughter got married to the father of the twins she is carrying, but the night ended in gunfire.

    Pretzels are part of the cultural fabric of Philadelphia. They are an essential at every office party, Sunday afternoon football spread, and the preferred anytime snack for kids and adults. In this round of Clean Plates' reports on inspections of city eateries, one establishment crossed a line and served up pretzels from an unknown source.
