(Israel Laboy, father of Robel Laboy who was shot and killed Friday night, is com-

forted by family members at candlelight vigil at Fourth and Ward streets, Saturday,

April 9, 2011, in Chester, Pa. – above)

As a vigil took place for 2 victims killed in a Chester shooting, 3 suspects were taken

into police custody.  Police say they still have more people to find after nine people

were shot inside Minaret Temple 174, at Fourth and Ward streets late Friday night in

Chester.  “Innocent bystander,” said Donna Fisher, a family member of one of the

victims who was killed. “Just kids out, you know, at a birthday party. I just don’t

understand it.”  Robel Laboy,17, and David Johnson, 19, were both killed in the gunfire.

All of the other victims are teens, sources say. They are hospitalized at Crozer Chester

Medical Center. Police say the survirors are all listed in stable condition.  Police have

one juvenile in custody charged with weapons offfenses. Chester Police say ballistic

tests will determine if he’s charged with homicide. Two others, including Carlisha

Coleman, 19, are charged with resisting arrest, risking a catastrophy and other related

charges. The party was being held for Coleman’s birthday.  The victims were cele-

brating when the shots rang out around 11:25 Friday night.  Dozens of purported

witnesses have been bussed to police headquarters to be interviewed by detectives.

Police have not released a motive for the shooting.  Police say witnesses are not

cooperating. With more than 100 people packing the temple, investigators believe

people know who opend fire. But officers fear the “Don’t Snitch” mentality still has

too strong a hold on this community.
