A 26-year-old man was arrested in the shooting of a 4-year-old boy and his father in South Philadelphia earlier this week, police said Friday.
Demarcas Tucker, 26, of the 300 block of West Godfrey Avenue in Olney, is accused of firing at least nine shots Monday night at a minivan in the 2700 block of Daly Terrace, police said.
The boy was shot in the stomach and the father was shot in the back and grazed in the neck. The father was believed to be the intended target. A 9-year-old girl in the minivan was not hurt. - Robert Moran
