Alleged Pathmark shooter caught

Jermaine Goodman, who was wanted for shooting an unarmed Pathmark security guard on March 22, was captured last night in South Philadelphia by the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force.  Tips led investigators to a rowhouse on Christian Street near 16th, where they found Goodman – who turned 30 yesterday – hiding on the third floor, said Lt. John Walker of Southwest Detectives. After a brief struggle, he was arrested and charged with attempted murder and related offenses. Walker said surveillance footage had shown Goodman, who also goes by the name Zahid Abdul-Muqeet, stealing cologne and dental floss from a Wynnefield Heights Pathmark last Sunday. He then shot the 44-year-old guard twice during a confrontation, Walker said. The guard is now recovering at home.
