Man exonerated for 2012 murder in Philadelphia being sought in recent deadly shooting

PHILADELPHIA - Authorities say a man who is being sought in connection to a recent deadly shooting was exonerated last year from a 2012 murder conviction.Police on Thursday shared a mugshot of 32-year-old Jahmir Harris who is linked to a deadly shooting that happened Sept. 5 on the 1700 block of North 56th Street. Prosecutors say Harris was identified by security footage as the driver of a vehicle that two gunman exited before shooting 50-year-old Charles Gossett in the back of the head around 2 a.m.Harris was previously convicted in the shooting death of 45-year-old Louis Porter just two days before Christmas 2012 in the parking lot of a Walgreens on Oregon Avenue.Porter's son was in the backseat of the car when investigators say more than a dozen shot were fired, but the 5-year-old was not injured.

Harris was later arrested and convicted in the murder of Porter.Harris' lawyer appealed to Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner to re-examine the case, which lead to his sentence being vacated. In a statement to FOX 29 News, the DA's Office said it found "Harris' constitutional rights had been violated at the time of his prosecution because information implicating another individual as the likely shooter had not been turned over to the defense council."Court transcripts from last year's combative hearing show Judge Rose Marie de Fino Nastasi was highly critical of the way the DA's Conviction Integrity Unit handled the case and was not confident in their investigation."This court wonders how the commonwealth felt confident in releasing a murder suspect from prison when the commonwealth said one page earlier that the criminal investigation in this matter was still ongoing," Judge de Fino Nastasi said.MORE LOCAL

IMF Chief urges creditor countries to show leadership to enable debt relief
COLOMBO (News 1st); The Chief of International Monetary Fund (IMF), Kristalina Georgieva urged for large creditor nations such as China to show leadership and move rapidly to enable debt relief to countries such as Sri Lanka.Speaking to CNBC during her visit India, the IMF Chief said that about 25% of emerging market economies in distress, and Sri Lanka has been such a case for a long time. Pointing out that over 60% of low-income countries are at distress due to this, and even middle-income countries with strong fundamentals have fallen into a dire situation. What happened to these countries was that the frequency of shocks they faced increased, the IMF Chief said; "shock, upon shock, upon shock. Even countries with strong fundamentals, are becoming vulnerable," she said.Therefore, the lesson which should be learned is prudent fiscal policies, sound buffers and building resilience to shocks, Georgieva said.Referring to countries such as Malawi, IMF Chief Georgieva said that the country is experiencing a food shortage, a fuel shortage, and a debt crisis, which makes the entry of IMF even harder. "My message to the creditors, especially large creditors such sa China; 57% of loans to low-income countries is from China, or the private sector, which is even a bigger creditor, is that you have done a needy job to provide financial resources for growth, that is not necessarily bad.

Vehicles pelted with rocks, debris thrown from train overpass onto Philadelphia highway
PHILADELPHIA - Authorities are investigating after motorists reported being pelted with rocks and other debris while driving down a Philadelphia highway on Tuesday night. A driver who asked to remain anonymous told FOX 29 that he was driving on I-76 eastbound near the Passyunk and Oregon Avenue exit around 7 p.m. when his car was struck by a large rock. He described the sound of the rock shattering his windshield as an "explosion" that sent glass fragments scattered across the inside of his brand-new car. "When the car got his I thought I got shot, the car got shot, that's how much of an explosion it was," he said. MORE LOCAL HEADLINESThe unnamed driver pulled his vehicle to the side of the road where several other cars had stopped after also being struck by thrown debris."There was a guy about 5-10 cars up from me that said a rock had gone through the windshield and struck a woman in the face that she needed emergency services," he said. Another driver who was in the shoulder of the highway claimed that her car was struck by a fire extinguisher, according to the anonymous driver. Officers from the Delaware River Port Authority said one person was throwing debris from the CSX Railroad overpass, but they ran away before police arrived. Dozens of cars were damaged when police say someone hurled rocks and other debris onto a busy Philadelphia highway.
