Kingsessing man to be tried in killing outside West Phila. nightclub


A Philadelphia judge Tuesday ordered a Kingsessing man to stand trial on a first-degree murder charge in the April 14 shooting of a man outside a nightclub near the University of Pennsylvania campus after an argument.

Municipal Court Judge Patrick F. Dugan ruled that there was enough evidence to try Corey Gaynor, 26, of 1200 block of South 54th Street, in the killing of Timothy Cary, 31, of West Philadelphia, outside the Copabanana at 40th and Spruce Streets.

Penn police responding to a 1:30 a.m. report of a person with a gun inside the nightclub apprehended Gaynor two blocks away. Police found Cary on the sidewalk, shot in the head, chest, a leg and both hands.

Assistant District Attorney Brendan O'Malley said Gaynor was identified by multiple witnesses, including Cary's girlfriend, as the shooter who fled and threw away the .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol used in the shooting. - Joseph A. Slobodzian
