Man Charged in Deadly Shooting Outside HS; Charges Unlikely for Train Bystanders; Ex-SWAT Recharged

A man has been arrested and charged with murder following a deadly shooting outside a Northeast Philadelphia high school on Monday afternoon, 10/18. 21-year-old Aaron K. Scott is charged with with murder, criminal conspiracy, attempt to commit murder, aggravated assault, possessing instruments of crime, simple assault, and recklessly endangering another person. It happened just before 3 p.m. near the intersection of Rowland and Ryan avenues outside Abraham Lincoln High School in Mayfair as students were being let out of school. A group of students was standing outside a pizza shop when a fight broke out. Scott and his 16-year-old brother were in the group. Two shots were fired. 66-year-old Jeffrey Carter was driving by the scene in his SUV when he was shot in the head by a stray bullet. He was pronounced dead at Jefferson Torresdale Hospital. A 16-year-old student from the school was hit in the back of the head as he ran away. He was taken to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital in critical condition. Two plainclothes officers were in an unmarked cruiser and witnessed the shooting. They arrested Scott at the scene.

A spokesperson for the Delaware County District Attorney said that charges are not likely to be filed against passengers on a SEPTA train who witnessed a rape of a woman last week but did nothing to help. Margie McAboy, spokeswoman for the DA, said, "It's still an open investigation, but there is no expectation at this time that we will charge passengers." She did not explain why charges would not be sought. It happened on October 13 on a westbound Market-Frankford El train on it's way into 69th Street Terminal. Police say that the attack lasted 40 minutes. 35-year-old Fiston Ngoy has been arrested and charged with rape and related charges. He sat next to the victim and started by touching and groping her. He eventually tore her pants off and began raping her. Police said it was caught on the train's surveillance video. Other passengers did not step in to stop the attack or call 911 for help. Some held their phones up and may have actually filmed the attack. A SEPTA employee saw that something was wrong and called police who met the train at 69th Street and arrested Ngoy. He is being held on $180,000 bail. The exact number of other riders has not been released but it may be "as many as 10 people" according to SEPTA Police Chief Thomas J. Nestel III.

UPDATE: District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer issued a further statement on Wednesday, 10/20, stating that "Pennsylvania law does not allow for the prosecution of a passenger that witnessed a crime." Any passenger who witnessed this crime should not fear any charges and should contact authorities with any information.

UPDATE: "There is a narrative out there that people sat there on the El train and watched this transpire and took videos of it for their own gratification,” Stollsteimer said on Thursday, 10/21. "That is simply not true. It did not happen. We have security video from SEPTA that shows that is not the true narrative."

Charges have been reinstated against a former Philadelphia SWAT officer who pepper sprayed several protesters on I-676 during demonstrations following the death of George Floyd in 2020. Common Pleas Court Judge Crystal Bryant-Powell reversed a previous judge's order dropping the charges. Richard Paul Nicoletti is facing three counts each of simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and official oppression, as well as one count of possession of an instrument of crime. It happened on June 1, 2020, on the Vine Street Expressway. A large group of protestors had spilled onto the highway and were blocking traffic. Nicoletti was caught on video holding a canister of pepper spray and spraying several protesters in the face. The individuals were kneeling down at the time. Following the incident, Nicoletti was fired from his job. Municipal court Judge William Austin Meehan Jr. had dismissed the charges back in May 2021 citing lack of evidence.
