A fatal accident involving a pedestrian, a fatal shooting and a stabbing were among violent incidents reported over the weekend by Philadelphia police:
A man believed to have stabbed another man in the back was arrested in South Philadelphia after his alleged victim spotted him, police said.
The unidentified victim was knifed at 2:28 a.m. at 6th Street near Tasker and, after police arrived, was taken to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.
Soon after the man was released, he saw his attacker and called cops, police said.
A 37-year-old Germantown man was killed when he was shot several times in a brawl outside a Nicetown bar, police said.
Dwayne Palmer, of Keyser Street near Manheim, was inside Buffy's Lounge, at Clarissa and Dennie streets, when a fight broke out and moved outside, police said.
Authorities were called to the scene at 1:15 a.m. and Palmer was taken to Temple University Hospital, where he died at 1:30 a.m. Investigators are unsure if Palmer was part of the fight or a bystander, but they believe that one person shot him several times "up close and personal," law-enforcement sources said.
A 54-year-old man was struck and killed by an SUV while crossing State Road a block from his Torresdale home, police said.
Balwant Singh, of State Road near Arendell Avenue, walked across the road mid-block about 11 p.m. and was hit by a southbound Cadillac Escalade, said Philadelphia police spokeswoman Officer Jill Russell. Singh was pronounced dead at the scene, and no charges were filed against the driver, Russell said.
