Police have arrested an Olney man wanted in the May shooting of a woman outside a Southwest Philadelphia bar.

Jhileel Burton, 18, of Rubicam Street near 2nd, was charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and related offenses for the May 19 attack outside the Baileys Bar at Bailey and Dickinson streets. The victim, 28, had just left the bar and was in a car when Burton allegedly stopped her to talk, police said. During that conversation, he allegedly pulled out a gun and fired several shots at her car as she tried to drive away. She was hit once in her right shoulder.

South Detectives got an anonymous phone tip Nov. 22 that Burton was on his block. They arrested him without incident.
