PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A judge has ordered a psychiatric evaluation to be done on a man accused of killing one Philadelphia shelter worker and wounding another a day after he was evicted.

The Philadelphia Inquirer (http://bit.ly/1Xyn19J ) reports that the evaluation of 32-year-old John Brock was requested by defense attorney Debra Rainey. Judge Patrick Dugan scheduled a March 1 status hearing to review the evaluation.

Brock is charged in the Jan. 17 shooting at Station House Homeless Facility in north Philadelphia that killed 43-year-old Edward Barksdale and wounded another man who was shot in the hip.

Authorities said the suspect had been thrown out of the shelter for suspected intoxication and breaking curfew. The shelter is run by an organization called SELF Inc., led by former Mayor W. Wilson Goode.
