Kimbrady Carriker, 40, faces numerous charges, including five counts of murder.
The police arrested Kimbrady Carriker, 40, in connection with the shooting of seven people in the city.
The shooter killed five men and injured two children. A mother and her twins suffered injuries from flying glass in her car due to gunshots.
Carriker faces five counts of murder along with “attempted murder, reckless endangerment, aggravated assault and carrying firearm without valid permit.”
Judge Naomi Williams denied Carriker bail: “Public safety is clearly an issue. There are no set conditions to ensure the safety of the community.”
I expect the story to go away soon because it seems that Carriker doesn’t fit the left’s narrative.
I wrote in my title the suspect wears women’s clothing because I have no idea if he is actually transgender or just a cross-dresser:
On his Facebook page, Carriker posted two pictures of himself wearing a bra, a women’s top and earrings with his hair braided long in March, three months before the alleged shooting.
He also regularly posts about supporting Black Lives Matter, including supporting workers who protested in the Strike For Black Lives in July 2020.
Weird, but not surprising. 6abc.com only mentions Carriker’s previous social media posts about guns and gunfire. The network left out the posts about BLM protests. The New York Post didn’t leave it out:
In May 2020, Carriker also posted a video to his Facebook of a burning Philadelphia police car that had been daubed with grafitti including “ACAB” — an acronym for “All coppers are b—–ds” — and captioned it: “I was there; where were you? #we matter.” However, It is unclear if he had filmed the video himself.
The shooting occurred on July 3 around 8:30 PM ET:
It all started around 8:30 p.m. Monday, on the eve of Independence Day, in the area of 56th Street and Chester Avenue in the southwestern part of the city.
Police say people called 911 to report a shooting and others flagged down officers.
Action News obtained security video being used in the investigation believed to show the shooter firing a high-powered rifle toward the Jeep at the intersection.
Police say at least 50 shots were fired at the scene and multiple vehicles were struck.
Arriving officers found gunshot victims at the scene. As officers began to put the victims in their patrol cars to take them to the hospital, they heard more gunfire and ran towards the sound. That’s where they encountered Carriker.
Police say officers were able to chase down and corner Carriker in the rear alley of 1600 Frazier Street. Police say the suspect was wearing a bulletproof vest and had multiple magazines. Carriker also had a police scanner, an AR-style rifle and a handgun, investigators say.
