Police have arrested a man in the killing of Dennis Gore, the 24-year-old son of a Philadelphia Police officer, sources said.
The suspect, whose name has not yet been released, was taken into custody at a residence this morning. The man is being charged today.
Gore, a father of two, was killed the afternoon of Feb. 6 by a gunman who walked up to him on an Overbrook street and shot him five times. The killing mystified police, who said Gore has had no criminal history.
Police are asking for help identifying two suspects who robbed a Southwest Philadelphia corner store in August.
Footage released last week shows three suspects entering the Jaquez Grocery Store on South 62nd Street around noon.
One of the robbers pulls a Tec-9 from his waistband and shoves it in the face of a woman working the counter, while another suspect trains a handgun on two employees.
