When they arrived, they were told that a male was shot in the leg and had been taken by private auto to nearby Jefferson Hospital, in Philadelphia. Once officers got there,they found a male who was shot once in the leg. The male told cops the shooting was over a drug transaction. He told the cops who did it and cops quickly made an arrest.
There were two teenagers allegedly involved in this incident. One male who did the shooting, Trejean Smith remains free, running from the cops.He lives in the complex so cops know where he may be returning to. Another male who was with Smith at the time of the shooting, Emmanuel Rodrigeuz was quickly arrested. Both males are being charged as adults. They face charges of Aggravated assault, robbery, and weapons offenses.
Do not let the picture of Smith smiling fool you. He is armed and considered dangerous. Rodriguez was jailed under $1,000,000 bail.
