Two brothers in Philadelphia have been charged with gunning down a 17-year-old at close range as the young woman left a McDonald’s restaurant with her twin sister, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
Jamal and Anthony Wilson, 22, were charged by police Thursday with murder in the death of 17-year-old Khadijah Morrison-Scott, according to an affidavit filed by Detective Ashleigh Strickler.
According to police, Morrison-Scott was eating a bowl of cereal when a car pulled up beside her. Jamal Wilson exited the vehicle and asked Morrison-Scott if she had a boyfriend.
“No, but they’re making it official soon,” Morrison-Scott replied, according to the affidavit. Jamal Wilson returned to the car and left, with his brother Anthony, who opened fire, striking Morrison-Scott with five bullets, before driving away.
The statement lists the officers as “Accomplices to Murder Number 1.” Jamal Wilson told police he did not know his brother was out shooting, according to the Inquirer. The men, accompanied by two other people, “kept driving and changed cars.” According to police, they abandoned the car on the 2800 block of Cedar Crest Boulevard, where they were arrested.
Jamal Wilson told police he “wanted to go out and get something to eat” and was unhappy about Morrison-Scott, according to the Inquirer. But there was no connection between the 19-year-olds, who lived in a different part of the city, the newspaper reported.
