Two suspects have been arrested in connection with the SEPTA bus stop shooting in Philadelphia.


On Monday, police identified the 18-year-old suspects as Jamaal Tucker and Ahnile Buggs.

Officers said Tucker turned himself into authorities last week after they served several search warrants. 

Buggs was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals on Saturday.

Deputy Commissioner of Investigations, Frank Vanore, said they recovered a weapon from Buggs residence that was used during the shooting.

“Our firearms identification unit was brought in, they took a look at that gun and were preliminarily able to tell us that that gun matched multiple casings at the scene,” Vanore said.

Both of the suspects face several charges including attempted murder and aggravated assault.

The shooting took place last week, after three masked suspects got out of their vehicle and fired over 30 rounds at students while they were waiting to take the bus after school. 

Eight teens between the ages of 15 and 17-years-old were shot. A 16-year-old boy who was shot nine times remains in critical condition.

Based on the video surveillance officers released of the vehicle, they’re still searching for two more suspects.

“We’re not done,” Vanore said. “We have other people we need to contact, we know who they are and we’re gonna continually move with our investigation towards not only those individuals but this group. Anyone who may have aided and assisted them, we’re coming for them too.”
