Two Men Shot Inside Philadelphia Gym

By Wyatt Earp | March 3, 2010

Oh, this is just fantastic, since this gym is only two blocks from my house. I guess I have to wear my gun when I take out the trash now.

Oh, and speaking of trash, you’ll never guess what game the suspects and victims were playing when the gunfight erupted.

Investigators say an argument over a basketball game ended in a double shooting inside a Northeast Philadelphia gym Tuesday evening. The shooting happened at about 7:50 p.m. inside the World Gym in the 11000 block of Roosevelt Boulevard.

According to police, the incident began when two groups began arguing over a score during the basketball game. Investigators say at least one suspect grabbed a gun and began shooting inside the gym. A 26-year-old was shot once in the stomach and a 24-year-old was shot in the chest and face.

Police said one suspect was taken into custody, but they are currently searching for at least four additional suspects.

Animals. Now, in fairness I checked every local news website for information on this story, and not one of them described the suspects. Additionally, there is no mention of the race of the shooters and the victims. Lack of information, or politically-correct reporting? You make the call.

    Just like the story of the jet flight from Heathrow to some destination in the USA, and the lady who tried to get into the cockpit the other day. They had no description of her either. To be fair, if she wasn’t mooselim, but instead white, maybe it was Amy Bishop’s sister?

    Anyways the story above sounds like a job for……
    Techno viking!

    Almost forgot, there are times a gun is needed for taking out the trash Wyatt. Especially if it is still moving.

    I just assume its disabled gay midget Eskimos when there’s no other information available. It’s a big time saver…

    Mujahid Muhammad. No really, that’s his name; shocking.

    News Story

    This shows a picture of Mujahid Muhammad, who looks dark in complexion with a funny beard. Other participants include:
    Zsaron Simpson
    Anthony Ellerbe

    A “new” buick was fetured too.

    I think “Eskimo” is a good guess

    I was thinking maybe it was a woman’s pick up game.

    Jon – No one fires at Techno Viking and gets away with it!

    Sully – I never trusted those Eskimos. Worst kind of people. /snark

    Randal – Are you frakkin’ kidding me? The Religion of Peace strikes again.

    Visitor – I checked 6ABC and it wasn’t posted when I wrote this. Good for them on finally showing a photo.

    Danny – Dang, I was going to go into work searching for Rebecca Lobo.

    I don’t need a picture because I know what the savage animals look like.

    Watuschskie – I was shocked and appalled when I saw who the suspect was. Heh.

    Maybe no one explained the difference between shooting and shooting hoops.

    Sounds like what you have here is a case of inner city Negroes just being inner city Negroes. Just trying to be polite.

    Hmm maybe this explains why Mayor Nutter needs that $300 per home to get rid of all the trash in the city.

    You need to move to my neighborhood. We can go shopping for sopressata!

    Kim – He definitely misread the definition of “shooting guard.”

    Minuteman26 – But I don’t live in the inner city! We need a damned wall. Just sayin’.

    AJ – Yeah, make us pay for trash removal because we are getting so many other terrific services for free . . .

    Mrs. Crankipants – Okay, two things. 1. Do you shop in a miniskirt and thigh-high boots? 2. Does it matter that I have no clue what sopressata is?

    Mrs. Crankipants – Sweet! I’ll be down on Saturday! :)

    Crusty – I’d venture to say that they weren’t too interested in school.
