- It was another violent weekend in Philadelphia. There were three deadly shootings but first, police say Marisol Garcia-Infante was found dead with "a large laceration to the back of her head" in her Kensington bedroom. The 41-year-old lived in the 3000 block of Ruth Street and was found "on the floor next to the bed, with a pool of blood around her head."

Then, according to police, "While police were outside of the location, a 43-year-old male approached the scene and said that he struck the victim on the head with a hammer. He was then transported to the Homicide Unit for further investigation." Juan Valerio, from the same block or possibly home, is now charged with murder and possession of an instrument of crime.

After 5pm Sunday in Tacony, 19-year-old Tymir Outlaw was shot in the 6900 block of Hegerman Street. He was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his torso and pronounced dead at the scene.  

Earlier Sunday afternoon, at about 2:30, there was a deadly shooting in the 5700 block of McMahon Street in East Germantown. Officers found the unresponsive victim "suffering from apparent multiple gunshot wounds to the head and body." He was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead before 3pm. Police say there is no motive or arrest. 

The latest deadly shooting also happened in East Germantown. Police say it started with an argument at about midnight.

Officers arrived at an apartment on E. Penn Street and say they found two men arguing on the third floor when one shot the other. The 22-year-old victim was hit multiple times in his chest and arms, and pronounced dead at the scene. Neighbors heard the shots and called police. They say they were met "by a 28-year-old male who said that he had just shot someone in an apartment inside of Unit block of E. Penn Street." The victim was identified as Boris Kimber Jr., 22.
