2nd Suspect Arrested In Philly Triple Killing

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Police in Philadelphia say they have arrested a second suspect in a triple killing at a corner grocery store.

Police arrested Nalik Shariff Scott on Saturday. They announced the arrest of Ibrahim Muhammed on Friday. It was not immediately clear if either man has a lawyer.

Police say the men fatally shot three people during an attempted robbery at Lorena’s Grocery in the city’s Mill Creek section.

Fifty-year-old bodega owner Porfiro Nunez, his 49-year-old wife, Carmen, and 42-year-old Lina Sanchez were killed on Sept. 6. Homicide Capt. James Clark says nothing was taken from the store.

Officials say the break in the case came by linking Muhammed and Scott to an August robbery at another grocery store. Surveillance video from that crime helped generate tips.

    $35,000.00 per prisoner per year………and all people b^tch about is the cost of educating children! Only in America! Bring back the death penalty now!

    No death penalty possible with Killadelphia peer jury. There will always be one or more holdouts. Then there’s the chance that they’ll be offered a plea bargain. Williams wants to avoid even the possibility of death sentences for blacks at all costs. When all three are tried and jailed it will be free food, shelter, health care, cable, etc., for a combined 150 years at taxpayers’ expense. And that’s just three murderous savages out of the hordes incarcerated throughout the U.S. How can any country afford this ever-worsening expense?
