Man arrested in basketball court shooting

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A 24-year-old man has been charged for allegedly opening fire into a crowd at a Philadelphia playground during a basketball game, injuring six people.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Isiah Davis faces six counts of attempted murder, aggravated assault and other counts in connection with the August 2011 shooting in the city’s Kingsessing section.

Investigators say a neighborhood feud sparked the shooting, which happened as 500 people were in the bleachers for an adult league game. Witnesses saw a young man cross the court and fire into the crowd.

Walker says police began to focus on Davis after receiving tips. He says Davis turned himself in Wednesday, accompanied by a lawyer.
