Philly's Indoor Mask Mandate Returns 4/18; 4 Suspects Carjack Mercedes; $5k Reward in KOP Shooting

The City of Philadelphia announced on Monday, April 11, that it will be moving back to Level 2: Mask Precautions in the COVID-19 response system due to rising case counts. It will go into effect on Monday, April 18, to give businesses a one-week educational period. Level 2 is when average new cases per day are between 100 and 225. It only requires individuals to wear a mask when indoors in public places. If an individual establishment requires proof of vaccination to enter then they are exempt from the mask mandate. Philadelphia is the only city to return to a mask mandate. The city had dropped the mandate on March 2. Philadelphia schools will once again require masks after spring break.

"Philadelphia’s COVID-19 response levels allow us to be clear, transparent and predictable in our response to local COVID-19 conditions," said Mayor Jim Kenney. "Given the recent rise in cases, we are moving to Level 2 in hopes of preventing higher case rates and stricter measures. Our city remains open; we can still go about our daily lives and visit the people and places we love while masking in indoor public spaces. I'm optimistic that this step will help us control the case rate."

Philadelphia Police are looking for four suspects who dragged a man out his Mercedes and shot him in Northeast Philadelphia on Sunday morning, 4/10. It happened around 4:45 a.m. on the 1400 block of East Cheltenham Ave near Oxford Circle. Four suspects approached the 2015 silver Mercedes Benz and pulled the 27-year-old driver from the vehicle. One of the suspects pulled out a gun and shot the victim in the stomach. The suspects then fled in the car. The man, identified by a friend as Raheem Bell, was taken to Temple University Hospital in critical condition. The stolen vehicle has license plate number LFD-2466. If you have any information, call Philadelphia Police at 215-686-TIPS (8477) or 215-686-8720.

There is now a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a man who shot and killed his ex-girlfriend at a gas station in King of Prussia on Friday night, 4/8. 38-year-old Rafiq Thompson is accused of killing 31-year-old Tamara Cornelius. It happened around 10:30 p.m. at the Exxon Station at 113 North Gulph Road in Upper Merion Township across from the KOP Mall. Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said on Monday, 4/11, that an autopsy revealed that Cornelius had been pregnant. Steele plans to file an additional murder charge against Thompson for the unborn baby. "This was a chilling murder of a young woman and her unborn child," Steele said. "We will be filing an additional homicide charge against the defendant - Murder of an Unborn Child."

On Friday, the two met up briefly around 9 p.m. Cornelius then went out to dinner. When she left the restaurant an hour later, she was followed by Thompson to the gas station. Once at the station, he got out of the car and began shooting. If you have any information, call Upper Merion Township Police at 610-265-3232 or the Montgomery County Detectives' Tip Line at 610-278-DOIT (3638).

Matisse Thybulle will not be eligible to play games in Toronto against the Raptors in Round 1 of the NBA Playoffs because he is not fully vaccinated. Canada requires travelers to be fully vaccinated to enter the country. Thybulle said he received the first dose last year, but changed his mind and decided not to get the second dose. Even if he changed his mind again and got a second dose now, he would not be considered fully vaccinated for another two weeks. Game 1 in Philadelphia is Saturday, April 16 at 6 p.m.
