$70,000 reward in shooting of 4 men near school; 3 dead

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A $70,000 reward is being offered for information in a shooting near a Roman Catholic school in Philadelphia that killed three men and wounded a fourth.

Authorities say an argument appears to have been behind the 25 shots fired at a group standing on the block Monday afternoon.

Tyair Jabbar and Ronald Fenwick died within minutes. Marcello Robertson died later at a hospital. A man shot in the stomach is hospitalized in stable condition.

Police Homicide Capt. James Clark said Tuesday investigators are collecting surveillance video. He says stepped-up patrols in the area are planned.

The shooting occurred near St. Malachy Catholic School, which has students in kindergarten through eighth grade and was locked down.
