It happened around 9:12 p.m. on March 24 when 15-year-old Sean Toomey stepped outside on the 6200 block of Mulberry Street in the Wissinoming neighborhood.
According to police, the teenager died the next day.
It’s still unclear who shot Toomey, but police say two male suspects were seen moments before pulling on the car door of a woman across the street.
This woman called her boyfriend for help, and when he came out, police say the two suspects ran away.
At some point during the incident, shots were fired. The police excluded the friend.
“I heard the two pops and thought they were firecrackers,” Sean’s father, John, said in a previous interview with Action News. “But it only takes a second to get some water and go inside and he didn’t come back. So I got curious. I put on my sweatshirt and went outside and saw him lying on my neighbor’s lawn. “
Officials told Action News that 17-year-old Saahir Teagle was recently arrested in New Jersey for murder. He will soon be extradited to Philadelphia.
A second suspect, identified as 17-year-old Daniel Gardee, turned himself in to police Wednesday afternoon. He is also facing murder charges.
The Toomeys said Sean loved sports, especially the Eagles, and kept to himself.
