PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia police have arrested a man they say shot two people - killing one - before shooting a third person who planned to call 911 after the suspect crashed his getaway vehicle.

Chief Inspector Scott Small says the chain of events began about 2 a.m. when the suspect shot a 31-year-old woman and 24-year-old man standing on a corner. The man died and the woman was in stable condition at Temple University Hospital.

The suspect then drove away, but crashed into a light signal pole and a home. When neighbors came out to investigate and offered to call 911, police say the suspect shot one of them - a 55-year-old man - in the head.

Police stopped and arrested the suspect a few blocks away. His name and charges weren’t immediately announced.
