Reward Offered For Arrest In Reckless Shooting On Crowded Logan Street
By Steve Tawa
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The city of Philadelphia and the Fraternal Order of Police have teamed up to put up $10,000 in reward money to find those responsible for a weekend quadruple shooting in the Logan section. A two-year old girl was among those hit near 12th Street and Wyoming Avenue.
The city is putting up $5,000 for the arrest and conviction of those responsible, and the FOP is adding a similar amount for any arrests made.
Captain Winton Singletary, Commanding Officer of Northwest Detective Division, says two-year-old Saani Evans is recovering from her stomach wound:
“She’s been upgraded out of ICU. She’s in good condition. So, she’s getting better.”
At one point during the house party Saturday night, with music blaring, two men fired handguns, but police aren’t sure whether they were exchanging gunfire, or aiming at someone in the crowd.
Singletary says all of those hit – the little girl and three adults – were innocent victims.
“If you’ve got two individuals out here firing guns with 200 people on the block, they’ve got no concern for anyone’s life. We’re lucky only four people got hit, to be honest.”
The other people wounded in the shooting were treated and released.
