PHILADELPHIA — Police are offering a $20,000 reward as they search for two suspects following the shooting death of a 7-year-old boy in Philadelphia.
Police arrested Christopher Linder, 27, on charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault and reckless endangerment, WTXF reported. Authorities upgraded the attempted murder charge to murder after the child died, according to the news outlet.
Police said Linder was driving a Chevy Silverado down North Simpson Street when he began shooting at people outside a home. Police believe two men returned fire at the vehicle, which crashed into a GMC Yukon, WTXF reported. Linder then got into the Yukon and fled, police said, adding that they arrested him later when he came back for the Silverado.
If you have information about the case, call Philadelphia police at 215-686-8477.
