Homicide detectives are questioning two men in connection with a carjacking

that ended with the running down of a crowd of five people along a Philadelphia

street. Three children, all siblings, who were in the group were killed.

The persons of interest, one 19-years-old and the other in his 20s, were taken

into police custody on Sunday. The younger man, identified by his attorney as

Jonathan Rosa, turned himself into detectives alongside his mother and their

pastor. U.S. Marshals and city police took the older man into custody later that

evening, officials said.

Rosa’s attorney, Christopher Warren, says his client was in the stolen vehicle that

crashed into the group on Friday morning. Rosa is cooperating with detectives to

try and “atone” for the crash, the attorney said.

“He turned himself in and he is doing everything in his power to try and atone for

what happened last Friday,” Warren said. “Quite frankly, he’s having an extremely

difficult time getting over the image of that 15-year-old girl coming over the hood

of the car.”

It was around 11:15 a.m. on Friday when a speeding white Toyota 4Runner lost

control at Germantown and Allegheny avenues in the Tioga section of North Phila-

delphia and ran into the sidewalk. The large SUV, which had been stolen at gun-

point a short time earlier, plowed into five people selling fruit on the corner, police

said. They were helping their church raise money to build a playground at the site.

Thomas Reed, 10, his 15-year-old sister, Keiearra Williams, and their 7-year-old

brother Terrence Moore were killed, according to police. Their mother, 34-year-

old Keisha Williams, and their 65-year-old neighbor Thelma Brown were also hurt.

Keisha Williams has remained in extremely critical condition since the crash.

Family and neighbors say she has not been told that her three children are dead.

She has two other children who were not at the crash scene. Brown suffered a

broken ankle, but should be released from the hospital on Monday.

After running down the group, the SUV then slammed into a tree. The two suspects

ran from the scene, but inside the car was its owner. That woman, who police haven’t

identified, is a realtor who was carjacked at 6th and Cumberland streets before the

crash, officials said.

The carjacking victim was also critically hurt, but has been able to speak with police.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said she has been a great help to

the investigation.

Sources say detectives have also been relying on forensic evidence — fingerprints on

the the stolen vehicle and a bloody shirt located nearby — to help narrow down their


Rosa told detectives the driver of the stolen SUV swerved to avoid hitting a police

officer and lost control, according to Warren.

A post on Rosa’s Facebook page from 8:15 a.m. on Friday said “Good and evil two

sides fighting for dominance.” Later that evening, at 9:42 p.m., Rosa’s mother

Amanda wrote on his page: “Please pray for Jonathan my son.”

Josue Rosa, the man’s uncle, tells his nephew is a good kid, without a

criminal record, who had just taken a test to join the U.S. Marines. He believes the

19-year-old was pressured by the other suspect to take part in the carjacking.

“I don’t want my nephew to do life in prison. If he was involved, alright. Don’t give

my nephew life in prison. He’s not a bad kid. He’s not the one who was driving,”

he said.

Despite Rosa’s attorney and family identifying him, police have yet to name either

man since they have not been charged. Warren, however, says he expects both men

to be charged with second-degree murder.

Ramsey said his investigators are speaking with the Philadelphia District Attorney’s

Office about filing charges and expect to deliver an announcement at 3:30 p.m. on

Nicki Minaj

I think Nicki Minaj would have been better off releasing the cover art for her next single “Anaconda” and not saying shit when the backlash hit, but that’s just me. The YMCB rapper fired shots at critics who had something negative to say about her album cover; which showed Minaj in a pink sports bra, pink thong, and Jordans, squatting with her ass facing the front as she looked back.

Nicki posted pictures on Instagram of Sports Illustrated models with their ass front and center, to compare her cover art to their spread, with the caption: “Angelic. Acceptable. LOL”

Nicki Minaj, Instagram

Most of her fans supported the message, even going so far as attacking super model Chrissy Teigen on Twitter (which, was stupid, but okay). Since then, Minaj has pushed back her single release date to August 4th, explaining on IG that her fans will “understand” the reason soon enough.
My thoughts on the whole situation: stop explaining yourselves!
Every time a rapper does something that goes against the grain, there has to be this long winded, media explanation or apology made, like people are going to suddenly change their minds based on what the artist said after the fact.
Not going to happen.

If you release a ratchet picture, that’s supposed to be racy and risqué on purpose, then leave it at that. Otherwise you’re just feeding into the media frenzy and it just becomes more publicity stunt for attention as opposed to just being about the music.

Tyrell Styles (father/boyfriend and shooter) above and Shyema Washington (above)

SHYEMA Washington had one person on her mind Saturday night as she stum-

bled back into her 3-year-old niece’s birthday party with blood pouring out of her


“She wanted her son,” said Washington’s sister, Daneesha Hill. “She just kept ask-

ing me about him.”

Hill said yesterday afternoon that she might not have the strength to answer her

little sister’s question if and when she regains consciousness.

Tyrell Styles, Washington’s longtime boyfriend, not only shot Washington in the

mouth, but also shot and killed their 5-year-old son, Cion Styles, according to police.

“She does not know what happened to her son as of yet,” Ridley Township Police

Lt. Scott Willoughby said of Washington, 26, who was in critical condition at Crozer-

Chester Medical Center yesterday, following the shooting at 11 p.m. Saturday outside

Hill’s apartment in the township’s Crum Lynne section.

“I don’t want to be the one to do it,” Hill said. “Me being a mom, I just couldn’t ima


Washington, a certified nursing assistant from West Oak Lane, remained conscious

long enough to tell the first officer on the scene that Styles had shot her. She was

struck in the mouth, buttocks and midsection, police said.

Styles, 26, then turned the 9 mm Ruger handgun on Cion and fired a round into his

forehead, according to police. The boy, also shot in the ankle, dropped to the grass

and was pronounced dead soon afterward at the hospital.

“He went to his cousin’s birthday party and he ended up with two gunshot wounds,”

Willoughby said. “He ended up dead.”

Police say Styles took off in his white Pontiac Gran Prix and blew through red lights

on Chester Pike, heading in the direction of Philadelphia. After striking two vehicles,

he came to a dead end in Sharon Hill, where he put the gun to his head and pulled

the trigger.

“As they exited their patrol cars, they heard a single gunshot from the vehicle,”

Willoughby said of the cops.

Styles is brain-dead and was on life support yesterday at the Hospital of the Univer-

sity of Pennsylvania, Willoughby said.

Meanwhile, Hill, 29, was still trying to make sense of what happened behind her

apartment Saturday night. She said that Styles, who recently had broken up with

Washington, was dropping Cion off at the party after spending a few hours with

him earlier in the evening. She didn’t hear an argument before the shooting.

“It just seems like a nightmare,” Hill said. “That’s my little sister. That was my

nephew. She’s in critical condition. He’s gone.”

Hill said that Styles, a security guard, had “put his hands on” Washington before,

and that Washington had once sprayed him with Mace. But he didn’t seem violent

in person, Hill said. A photo from less than two months ago shows Washington

and Styles smiling and dancing together at Hill’s wedding.

“The stories she told me didn’t match up with what I saw. He had two personal

ities,” Hill said.

“He was a little guy,” she added. “I don’t think she thought he was a threat.”

Saturday’s birthday party was for Hill’s daughter, Summer, who turned 3 years old.

She was still awake when Styles opened fire, and witnessed the aftermath, Hill said.

Summer didn’t mention the shooting yesterday, but has remained close by her

mother, occasionally chiming in on her conversations or requesting a back scratch.

Hill is concerned that what she saw on her 3rd birthday will have psychological

repercussions down the line.

“She’s old enough to know things,” Hill said. “She saw everything. She’s eventually

going to ask something.”

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has been suspended for the first two games of this sea-

son for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy following his offseason arrest for domestic


The suspension, which was announced Thursday by the league, stems from Rice’s altercation

with then-fiancée Janay Palmer at an Atlantic City hotel in February.

Rice also was fined an additional regular-season game check but is eligible to participate in

training camp and all of Baltimore’s preseason games, the NFL announced.

“It is disappointing that I will not be with my teammates for the first two games of the season,

but that’s my fault,” Rice said in a statement released by the Ravens. “As I said earlier, I failed

in many ways. But, Janay and I have learned from this. We have become better as a couple and

as parents. I am better because of everything we have experienced since that night. The coun

seling has helped tremendously.

“My goal is to earn back the trust of the people, especially the children, I let down because of

this incident,” Rice said. “I am a role model and I take that responsibility seriously. My actions

going forward will show that.”

Rice was fined a total of $529,411.24 — the combined total of two game checks for this year

and one check from last season.

Speaking about Rice’s punishment after the team’s first full-squad workout of training camp

Thursday in Owings Mills, Maryland, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said: “It’s not a big deal.

It’s just part of the process. We said from the beginning that the circumstances would deter-

mine the consequences. There are consequences when you make a mistake like that. I stand

behind Ray. He’s a heck of a guy. He’s done everything right since. He makes a mistake.

He’s going to have to pay a consequence.”

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell informed Rice of the league’s decision in a letter, saying

that the league expects the three-time Pro Bowler to continue to attend counseling.

“The league is an entity that depends on integrity and in the confidence of the public, and

we simply cannot tolerate conduct that endangers others or reflects negatively on our game,”

Goodell wrote in his letter to Rice. “This is particularly true with respect to domestic violence

and other forms of violence against women.

“You will be expected to continue to take advantage of the counseling and other professional

services you identified during our meeting,” Goodell wrote. “As you noted, this additional

assistance has been of significant benefit to you and your wife, and it should remain a part

of your practice as appropriate.”

Rice allegedly struck Palmer unconscious on Feb. 15 while in a casino elevator in Atlantic

City. Video surfaced online showing Rice dragging an apparently unconscious Palmer out

of the elevator. The couple has since married.

Rice pleaded not guilty to a third-degree charge of aggravated assault and avoided trial by

being accepted into a pretrial intervention program in May.

“We appreciate the thorough process the league office used to evaluate the incident with

Ray Rice,” Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement. “The time the

commissioner spent with Ray and Janay is typical of the extra steps the NFL takes when

making decisions regarding discipline issues. While not having Ray for the first two games

is significant to our team, we respect the league’s decision and believe it is fair.

“We also respect the efforts Ray has made to become the best partner and father he can be.”

Newsome said. “That night was not typical of the Ray Rice we know and respect. We believe

that he will not let that one night define who he is, and he is determined to make sure some-

thing like this never happens again.”

Under the personal conduct policy, the NFL can suspend a player even if he isn’t charged

or convicted of a crime. Rice met with Goodell on June 16.

“I believe that you are sincere in your desire to learn from this matter and move forward

toward a healthy relationship and successful career,” Goodell wrote to Rice. “I am now

focused on your actions and expect you to demonstrate by those actions that you are pre-

pared to fulfill those expectations.”

Rice will begin serving his suspension Aug. 30, and he will be eligible for reinstatement

Sept. 12, the day after Baltimore plays a Thursday night game in Week 2 against the rival

Pittsburgh Steelers.

Rice also will miss the Ravens’ season opener against another division rival, the Cincinnati


There is no proven starter on the Ravens’ roster to replace Rice. Baltimore’s top backup

running backs — Bernard Pierce, Justin Forsett and rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro — have a

combined eight career starts. Pierce is expected to fill in for Rice, but he’s been limited

this offseason while recovering from shoulder surgery.

First-time offenders, such as Rice, typically are suspended a month or less by the league.

In the past three years, only 12 players have received more than four-game suspensions,

and all were repeat offenders.

The amount of the additional fine is $58,823, which specifically represents one-seventeenth

of Rice’s $1 million base salary from 2013, a league source confirmed to ESPN. The two

game checks from this season equal $470,588.

A league official told ESPN that the decision on the sum of the additional game check was

based on the idea that the incident occurred during the 2013 season.

Rice was one of five Ravens players arrested this offseason. The latest was cornerback Jimmy

Smith, who was arrested and charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct July 12.
