On Friday night 16 Shots were fired in Cherry Hill, killing a 16-month old day. Police arrested Eddie Tarver in connection with Rashaw Scott’s attempted murder and the murder of his son, Carter. Witnesses were scared and in disbelief.
One local said, “I grew up in the city. I know it’s hard, but this kind of stuff just has to stop. It’s about our future. It’s about our kids, man.”
On Saturday, the violence continued in Pigtown. A man was shot outside a store on Cross Street, and blocks away officers caught up with the suspect a few blocks over where police fired at the armed suspect.
Deputy Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez said, “The officers are OK. The suspect was injured multiple times as a result of that.”
