Anger over Pa. police shooting near playground

Three undercover officers opened fire on a wanted suspect in front of children


Philadelphia Daily News

PHILADELPHIA — Down the street from the Germantown playground where Vincent Parsons was fatally shot Friday by police, the men who gathered at a barbershop yesterday were still simmering over the way the cops chasing Parsons handled the situation.

"The way those police cars came flying down [a ramp in the park], there could have been children playing there," said Raymond Alexander, who said he had just arrived at the park with his 5-year-old son when the shooting started about noon Friday.
