Killadelphia: 2 Killed, One Injured (No Word From Black Lives Matter)

By Matthew Nussbaum, Sep 22, 2015 Philly

Two Philadelphia brothers, both with lengthy criminal records, allegedly engaged in a deadly argument Monday evening.

Police responded to reports of a person with a gun at 6:35 p.m. Monday, on the 5100 block of Kershaw St. in Parkside. On arrival, police found Jacquell Roundtree, 31, on his front porch with gunshot wounds to his back and side. He was transported to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center where he died shortly after 9 p.m. A suspect, identified only as Roundtree's brother, was in police custody Tuesday morning, a police spokesperson said.

That suspect, according to police sources, is Dominic Roundtree, 29.

Both brothers were in the news within months of each other in 2005. In January, Dominic Roundtree was arrested by Cherry Hill police after allegedly attempting to cash a suspected forged check. He was carrying a loaded handgun and 17 grams of crack cocaine when he was arrested, according to police at the time. He was 18.
