PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police say a second man being sought in the death of a 3-year-old girl killed by a stray bullet on the porch of a south Philadelphia home has been arrested.
A police spokeswoman said 22-year-old Brandon Ruffin was taken into custody without incident Monday evening by homicide detectives.
Police allege that Ruffin was the triggerman in a quadruple shooting Friday night that left Tynirah Borum dead. She was shot as she was getting her hair braided on a porch in the Gray’s Ferry neighborhood. Three other people, including the intended target, also were hit.
Twenty-two-year-old Douglas Woods was arrested earlier. Police allege that Ruffin was riding on the handlebars of a bike pedaled by Woods when they argued with another man, and Ruffin shot and critically injuring him.
