Anyone know anything about this? I live nearby but was out of town & didn't have a chance to talk to my neighbors. Philly.com basically says a 28 year old guy from North Philly (800 block of North 11th Street) was shot in the head while he sat in a minivan parked on Sartain at around 7pm on Saturday. That seems incredibly bizarre for this area, plus, it still would have been fairly light out. (We did have a murder a block away on New Year's Eve, but that was 2 guys on the block fighting over a spot, and the poor older guy who was the victim was trying to break it up & got stabbed. The guy who did the killing was a problem on the block for years)
By contrast, this victim, identified as Anthony Ginns, was from nowhere around here, and if he is the same Anthony Ginns, has a criminal record for drugs & theft. Sartain seems to be a really quiet block. WTF? Drug-related hit? Just wondering if anyone has heard anything. Thanks.
