Teen Girl Charged in Beating Death; Man Shot at Center City SEPTA Station; ATV Law Signed
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

A teenage girl has also been arrested in the beating death of an elderly man in North Philadelphia last month. 14-year-old Gamara Mosley is charged as an adult with third-degree murder and criminal conspiracy in the death of 73-year-old James Lambert. Mosley surrendered to police Wednesday, 7/13. 14-year-old Richard Jones was charged in the murder earlier this week. A 13-year-old old and a 10-year-old also surrendered, but were released without charges. It all happened on June 24 around 2:45 a.m. A group of teenagers attacked Lambert, hitting him in the head with a traffic cone and other objects. He died the next day. The incident was captured on surveillance video. There were 7 teens seen in the video, four boys and three girls.

The District Attorney's Office released this statement, "A 14-year-old boy and 14-year-old girl have been charged with Third Degree Murder and Conspiracy. No one else in connection to this crime has been charged at this time. DA Krasner and everyone at the DAO express our deepest condolences to Mr. Lambert's family, friends, and community regarding his shocking and tragic death."

A 19-year-old man is in critical condition after being shot several times on a subway platform in Center City near City Hall on Thursday afternoon, 7/14. It happened at 12:24 p.m. at the 15th Street Station. The man was shot in the chest, stomach, and hand. SEPTA Transit officers were on patrol and responded quickly to the scene. He was taken to Jefferson Hospital in critical condition. The shooter fled the scene. A weapon was recovered. 15th Street Station has since been reopened.

UPDATE: A 14-year-old boy has surrendered in connection to the shooting. Police say that two teens exited the train and began to have words with the 19-year-old on the platform. The suspect then pulled a gun and shot the victim. The victim may also have had a gun. The other teen was questioned and released.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed a bill into law on Wednesday, 7/13, that cracks down on illegal all-terrain vehicles riding in cities around the commonwealth. This new law will allow police departments to confiscate and then either sell or destroy off-road vehicles that were caught riding illegally on roads. Specifically the bill states, "a dirt bike or all-terrain vehicle operated on any public street, highway or right-of-way in a city of the first class, second class, second class A or third class or a borough in violation of this section shall be designated as prima facie contraband subject to forfeiture." The bill will go into effect in 60 days.

"This bill's swift passage and enactment into law recognizes the growing danger illegal dirt bike and ATV usage is presenting on our roadways," state Sen. Pat Browne, who authored the bill, said. "We have seen countless incidences of the property being destroyed, injuries to pedestrians and the tragic loss of life of innocent bystanders due to these reckless actions. I want to thank my colleagues in the General Assembly and the Governor for their support to give law enforcement the tools necessary to keep these vehicles off the streets."
