McGillin's Heat Lamps Stolen on Video; Man Shot West Chester Barricade; Teen Charged as Adult

A thief was caught on surveillance video stealing a number of heat lamps from a Center City restaurant overnight on Friday, 2/12. It happened at McGillin's Olde Ale House in the alleyway on Drury Street in Midtown Village. The thief cut the locks on four lamps and loaded them in the back of a white pickup truck. McGillin's owner Christopher Mullins said that they knew what they were doing. The lamps cost around $300 each and are very hard to find due to demand for outdoor dining. Philadelphia just released ventilation requirements for restaurants to increase indoor capacity from 25% to 50%, but no request has been approved as of Friday. McGillins, the oldest pub in Philadelphia, has been open since 1860. "We'll get through it. We survived prohibition, we'll survive COVID," Mullins said. "But it does make the job extra hard."

A man was shot and critically injured by police during a barricade situation in West Chester on Thursday evening, 2/11. It happened around 6 p.m. on the 900 block of Cornwallis Drive. Police were called after the man was having a mental health crisis and threatening to shoot his mother and sister. They were able to flee the home and call police. West Chester Regional Emergency Response Team responded to the scene. The suspect fired at least 15 shots at the WCRERT members. One WCRERT member returned two rounds, striking the man once. He was taken to Paoli Memorial Hospital in critical condition.

A 17-year-old girl will be tried as adult in the beating death of a homeless man in Camden, NJ, last year. Tresjure Knight of Pennsville is charged with murder, conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and desecration of human remains. Four other juveniles are also charged in the case including a 12, 13, 14, a 15-year-old. 63-year-old Bobby Hill Jr. was found dead from blunt force trauma in an alleyway near the 1100 block of Kaighn Avenue. One of the teens filmed the attack on a cell phone.
