Philadelphia and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) are offering a total reward of $30,000 for information leading to the arrest of a person of interest involved in a Saturday night shoot which left three dead and 12 injured.
Two suspects, Quran Garner, 18, and Rashaan Vereen, 34, are currently in custody.
Police describe the person of interest as a tall, burly black man in his late teens with fair to medium skin tone and bushy hair. He was wearing a black sweatshirt with distinctive red markings in security camera footage obtained by police.
“The individual in the photo is wanted in connection with [with] mass casualty shooting incident 6/4/22,” Philadelphia police said in a tweet on Tuesday. “He should be considered armed and dangerous.
Authorities have charged Garner with two counts of aggravated assault and aggravated assault on law enforcement officers, Krasner’s office said.
Video footage apparently shows Garner firing towards the area where the initial conflict between the victims was taking place. That’s when Philadelphia police shot Garner, injuring his hands. He is currently at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital undergoing surgery for his injuries.
Vereen has been charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, common assault, recklessly endangering another person and other related charges, Philadelphia’s Fox 29 reported.
Krasner said earlier Monday that at least four firearms were involved in Saturday night’s shootings on South Street in central Philadelphia, and it’s possible other firearms were involved. Police said evidence indicated five firearms were involved, two of which were recovered. Two of the three original participants had gun licenses, while one did not, Krasner’s office said.

Police said Gregory Jackson, 34, Alexis Quinn, 27, and an unidentified 22-year-old man were killed. Investigators believe one of them was involved in ‘a physical altercation’ with another man, and these two began shooting at each other, both hit by gunfire, one injured and one killed , authorities said.
The other two people killed and a number of injured, ages 17 to 69, were thought to be innocent bystanders, said city police commissioner Danielle Outlaw. Mayor Jim Kenney called the shooting “beyond devastating.”

Surveillance video from local businesses showed a rush of people fleeing when the gunfire broke out. Police were looking for images of businesses to try to identify suspects. Police are also investigating several other shootings, including a fatal one, in or near the same area to see if they could be linked, officials said.
Authorities are asking anyone with information to contact 215-686-TIPS.
