Philadelphia police today are waiting for a second suspect in Friday’s shooting at Delaware Valley Charter High School to turn himself in, officials announced today.
The 15-year old initially arrested was cleared and released. After examining video surveillance and doing interviews, police secured two properties of two suspects. One turned himself in and police are waiting today for the second one to do so.
The District Attorney’s office approved charges of two counts of aggravated assault for the second suspect but charges, at this time, have not yet been approved for the first suspect.
