Down Philly's Mean Streets: One Dead In Philadelphia Shooting Involving Murder and Robbery Suspects, the FBI and The Philadelphia Police
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported yesterday on the shooting in Philadelphia that involved murder and robbery suspects, the FBI and the Philadelphia Police Department.
The men were apparently related, but they shared more than a family tie.
Police said they were a tag-team of crime and violence, responsible for murder and robberies across the city. And they had vowed to resist arrest.
As officers and FBI agents swarmed their East Mount Airy hangout early Monday afternoon, the suspects stormed from a back door with weapons drawn, police said. The ensuing gunfight near Musgrave Street seemed to last 10 minutes, a neighbor said.
When it ended, 21-year-old Tevin Hammond was dead and 19-year-old Justin Mackie was severely wounded.
