Police are looking for the shooter responsible for the death of a teenager on the SEPTA bus – NBC10 Philadelphia

Philadelphia Police Department on Friday published video the unnamed suspect and another person implicated in the murder of 15-year-old Randy Mills.

Police allege the suspect shot and killed on a moving SEPTA bus late Wednesday night.

The shooting occurred around 10:50 p.m. on a 23 bus in the 5200 block of Germantown Avenue, near East Bringhurst Street in the Germantown neighborhood, Philadelphia police and SEPTA police said.

Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said the shooter was a man wearing a hoodie with a jacket over it and a mask over his face. He got off the bus through the front door and was last seen walking south on Germantown Avenue.

It’s not clear to authorities whether the suspect and Mills knew each other or had just had an argument on the bus. However, sources say they know the two argued, there was verbal abuse and one person drew a gun.

Police released images of the suspect and the individual in question, hoping someone would come forward and identify them.

Mills was a student at Roxborough High School. The school district has deployed a crisis response team and will provide grief and mental health services to all students.

“But I didn’t know he was on that bus,” said Alma Dorman, a neighbor of Mills. She knew a teenager had been shot dead on a SEPTA bus not far from where she lived, but she didn’t find out who it was until Friday.

“But he was a good little kid,” Dorman said. “He was a respectful little boy and I will really miss him.”

Saturday, May 27th will be held at the Khadijah Alderman Funeral Service Inc. at 1924 W. Hunting Park Ave. a memorial service was held for Mills.

The viewing will take place at 10:00 am followed by prayer at 10:30 am. Burial will take place at Chelten Hill Cemetery.

This was the second shooting on a live SEPTA bus in as many weeks as two teenagers were shot dead on a bus last week. Lawson said he is conducting a study to see if crime is increasing in the SEPTA system.

SEPTA Police Chief Chuck Lawson warned anyone committing a crime on public transit.

He said that anyone who rides SEPTA gets caught on camera many times. He also said that going forward, so-called “shiesty” masks, popular with young people, will no longer be allowed in the SEPTA system. As of Thursday, at least 165 homicides have been reported in Philadelphia in 2023. according to the Philadelphia Police Department. That’s down 12% from the same period last year, but it’s on track to become one of the deadliest years in recent history.
