Jury deliberations continued for a second full day yesterday in the attempted-murder trial of Zahir Boddy-Johnson, 17, of North Philadelphia, who is charged with shooting a Philadelphia Housing Authority police officer inside a security booth at a Germantown apartment building.

One of the issues being debated in Common Pleas Court is whether Boddy-Johnson should face a charge of attempted murder or aggravated assault.

He is accused of shooting Officer Craig Kelley with an assault rifle Feb. 17, 2008, at the Queen Lane Apartments at Queen Lane and Pulaski Avenue. - Vernon Clark
