Teen charged in killing of just-released inmate, 3 others

Regional News

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia teenager has been charged in four homicides, including a Christmas Eve slaying caught live on social media and what authorities believe was the mistaken-identity killing of a man gunned down on prison grounds shortly after his release.

Police say the 16-year-old had been arrested earlier and charged with the Dec. 24 killing and a March quadruple shooting that killed a man and another teenager and critically wounded two men.

Last week, the 16-year-old defendant was charged with the early morning slaying of the just-released inmate March 18. Messages seeking comment were left Sunday with two attorneys representing the defendant.
