Arrest in killing of Philly officer's son

Police have arrested a man in the killing of Dennis Gore, the 24-year-old son of a Philadelphia Police officer, sources said.

The suspect, whose name has not yet been released, was taken into custody at a residence this morning. The man is being charged today.

Gore, a father of two, was killed the afternoon of Feb. 6 by a gunman who walked up to him on an Overbrook street and shot him five times. The killing mystified police, who said Gore has had no criminal history.

More information about the arrest is expected to be released later today.
