Devin Weeden Death, PA – On Wednesday, the investigators were able to positively identify the victim as 15-year-old Devin Weeden. This past week, on their way to Mastery Charter’s Simon Gratz High School, two students were struck by a vehicle and killed as they walked to school. He was one of those students. The robbery served as the incentive for the shooting that took place on Tuesday just after 7:30 in the morning, according to new comments that were made by police on Wednesday. These remarks were made public today.
According to statements made by investigators to reporters in the immediate aftermath of the teen’s death, Weeden, who lived in West Philadelphia and was in the tenth grade, had gotten into a fight with three young men dressed in black before one of the suspects pulled out a gun and shot him in the chest. The statements were made by investigators who were looking into the teen’s death. After that, he was no longer able to defend himself against the effects of his wounds, and he passed tragically shortly after that.
In Nicetown, the homicide occurred at the intersection of 16th Street and Hunting Park Avenue, which is only a couple of blocks away from the Gratz campus. On Wednesday, the school administration at Mastery stated that grief counselors would be available on campus in honor of the “day of healing” that had been established for that day. There will not be any classes. Classes will resume on Thursday, according to a representative for the charter school network. There will be additional staff members there to assist with the arrival and release of pupils, she said. The inquiry into the incident did not lead to the arrest of anyone as a result of the probe.
