Philadelphia Police provided an update into last weekend's separate shootings of an 11-month-old boy and a 2-year-old girl. 11-month-old Yaseem Munir Jenkins was shot and critically injured while riding in the back of his step mother's car on Saturday, Oct. 19 on the 700 block of W. Luzerne Street. 2-year-old Nikolette Rivera was shot and killed when a gunman opened fire on her home on Sunday, Oct. 20 on the 3300 block of N. Water Street. Police announced that 30-year-old Freddie Perez and Tavon Thomas have been arrested and charged with murder, attempted murder, and related charges in the death of Rivera. They say the shooting was motivated by narcotics. Fransisco Ortiz was arrested will be charged with attempted murder for the shooting of Jenkins. Perez has 17 prior arrests and was arrested on Tuesday in Chester. Thomas has 9 prior arrests and was arrested in Philadelphia on Wednesday. Ortiz was released from prison in January after serving 10 years. He was arrested on Thursday after appearing in court for an unrelated gun charge.
