We Didn't Shoot Him Enough Times!
Police have shot and wounded the man they believe took the life of Philadelphia Police Officer Gary Skerski last week in a bar robbery in Frankford.
The shooting came this afternoon in a confrontation in the 5700 block of North 19th Street in the city's Olney section.
The suspect, tentatively indentified as Solomon Montgomery, was fired at twice by a detective and once by a patrol officer, a police official said. The suspect was struck once in the arm. He was transported by police wagon to Albert Einstein Medical Center.
Police said the break in the case came last night when a relative of the suspect went to police headquarters with a picture of him wearing clothing that fit the description of the man wanted in the Skerski shooting. Police subsequently obtained at least two other tips identifying the same man as the gunman.
