No one was injured in a shooting incident at a West Beacon Street convenience store last week that stemmed from another shooting, Philadelphia police said.
Willie Parker, 61, of 9165 Jenni Circle, Jonesboro, Ga., has been charged with aggravated assault over the attempted shooting of Chavis Davis, 19, of 327 Bay St., Philadelphia Police Investigator Fredesz Moore said.
The incident occurred at the Quick Shop on West Beacon Street at about 9:45 a.m. on Nov. 27.
Davis was allegedly shot at once by Parker but was uninjured, Moore said.
Moore added that the incident stems from the Oct. 14 shooting where one of six bullets fired during an assault landed in a classroom at the Exhibit Hall Head Start Center on Carver Avenue.
Wilshaun McAfee, 31, of 222 Martin Luther King Dr., was charged with aggravated assault and shooting into an occupied dwelling in that incident.
Moore said that Parker, the alleged shooter, who is McAfee's uncle, confronted Davis, whom McAfee had allegedly fired at during the October incident.
This is the 16th shooting incident in Philadelphia since early summer.
