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


On Monday, police identified the 18-year-old suspects as Jamaal Tucker and Ahnile Buggs. Authorities said that Tucker had turned himself in last week after the police served “several” search warrants. 

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

Deputy Commissioner of Investigations Frank Vanore said that they recovered a weapon from Buggs’ residence that was purportedly 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 suspects now face several charges, including attempted murder, and aggravated assault.

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

Eight teens between the ages of 15 and 17-years-old were shot during the incident. One of the victims, a 16-year-old boy who was shot nine times, is now in critical condition.

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

“We’re not done,” Vanore asserted. “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.”
