Overbrook High School
Two men have been charged in connection with the murder of Bernard Scott, a 17-year-old Overbrook High School student who was shot and killed in a playground right across the street from the school.
At Overbrook High School, students and faculty gathered for an after school vigil today in memory of Bernard Scott, the popular sophomore who was shot and killed last week after gunfire erupted during a fistfight.
“I’m angry anytime anyone gets hurt in this city, whether it be by guns or any other method. You know, it’s about violence. It’s about the culture of violence, and a mindset in that regard,” the mayor said.

Video of a junior at Overbrook High School being brutally attacked is making the rounds on social media sites. Police are now looking to identify the attackers and charge them with aggravated assault.
Ninety-one school police officers will lose their jobs in the School District of Philadelphia. Because of that, 25 schools in the district will no longer have an officer stationed inside the building.
