My division had the first homicide of the year, a mere five hours after 2015 arrived.
A 19-year-old was killed Thursday morning during a shooting in the Olney section of Northwest Philadelphia.
The victim was shot in the head around 5:15 a.m. inside a home on the 5800 block of North Philip Street. Medics pronounced him dead on the scene. His identity was not immediately released.
This is on top of the hundreds of gunshots fired when the clock struck twelve, because why bang pots and pans when you can just let off a few rounds into the air?
