Alleged Philadelphia Mass Shooter Suspect Identified as  Kimbrady Carriker; Arraigned on 5 Counts of Murder

Law enforcement arrested and charged Kimbrady Carriker, (40), with five counts of murder 10 counts of assault, 10 counts of recklessly endangering another person and four counts of weapons charges in the mass shooting in Philadelphia, PA, that left five people dead.

The shooting killed 15-year-old Daujan Brown, 20-year-old Lashyd Merritt, 29-year-old Dymir Stanton, 31-year-old Joseph Wamah, Jr. and 59-year-old Ralph Moralis.

Police said Carriker was found with an AR-style rifle, a 9mm handgun, a bulletproof vest that held multiple magazines and a police scanner. 

There is a good reason to believe the AR-15 and the ghost gun “may have been obtained illegally,” Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said. The investigation into the legality of the gun will take time, he said, “partly … because the NRA has done a hell of a job trying to make it difficult for people to investigate the source of a weapon.”

Carriker appeared to be just aimlessly shooting at people; at least 50 shots were fired.

Police have not said where Carriker got the rifle used in the shooting.
