Man Shot/Killed At Pat's Steaks Over Dispute; Seagull Flies in Teen's Face; Philly Recommends Masks

A man was shot and killed while in line at Pat's King of Steaks in South Philadelphia early Thursday morning, 7/22. It happened around 1 a.m. outside the landmark cheesesteak shop bound by 9th Street, Wharton Street, and Passayunk Avenue. Police say that 6 or 7 people were waiting in line on the sidewalk to order when an argument and fight broke out between two customers. One person pulled out a gun and shot the other. The shooter jumped into a van, driven by a woman, and fled the scene. He is described as having red hair and wearing a Philadelphia Eagles jersey. The 23-year-old male victim was taken to Jefferson University Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The shooter turned himself in to police near 5th and Market a short time later. He matched the description given by multiple witnesses. Police are still looking for the female driver and the van. Pat's was closed while police investigated. It has since reopened. The identities of the shooter and the victim have not been released. The nature of the disagreement is also unknown, but it may have been a dispute between an Eagles fan and a Giants fan.

UPDATE: 36-year-old Paul Burkert of Reading, PA, has been charged with the murder of 23-year-old David Padro of Camden, NJ.

Two teen girls celebrating a birthday on the boardwalk in Wildwood earlier this month got a feathered surprise when riding one of the high flying rides. 13-year-old Kiley Holman of Weatherly, PA, was with Georgia Reed for her 14th birthday on July 6th. They decided to ride the Springshot at Morey's Piers Adventure Pier. The two seat ride shoots you straight up in the air on bungee cords up to 75 mph. As seen in the video, just as the ride launches, a seagull flies right into the face of Kiley. She is able to pull the bird off of herself and it flies away unharmed. Georgia, focused on surviving the ride, didn't believe when her friend told her about the bird until they watched the video.

The Philadelphia Health Department updated coronavirus COVID-19 recommendations on Thursday, 7/22, hoping to help stop the spread of the new Delta variant. The best way to stop the virus is to get vaccinated. "As of this week, over one million people have been vaccinated in Philadelphia," said Mayor Kenney. "The numbers make it clear: vaccinations are the best way to combat COVID-19 by protecting ourselves and the people around us." After months of steadily declining case counts, officials say that the numbers are trending back up slightly. The Health Department now "strongly recommends that everyone, including fully vaccinated people, wear masks in all public indoor places." This is not a mask mandate.

"We are seeing a small but disturbing increase in hospitalizations due to COVID-19 among children in Philadelphia, along with more than a doubling of cases in the city," said Acting Health Commissioner Dr. Cheryl Bettigole. "It's time for all of us to do what we need to do to protect our city's kids. That means getting fully vaccinated if you haven't yet, and it means all of us going back to wearing masks in public. Kids under 12 cannot yet be vaccinated. They need you to step up. If you still have questions you need answered, call your doctor or our health department staff and get the information you need. And then get it done."
