Teenage gunman Jamel Barnwell has turned himself into the authorities. He turned himself in on Sunday night at approximately 11 pm, according to CBS Philadelphia.
He allegedly got into an argument with Frank Wade. Moments later, Wade was shot.
The authorities have said that they believe Barnwell pulled a weapon from his jacket then shot Wade.
Four others were also injured in the shooting. These people were related to Wade.
The police have said that Barnwell was at the bowling alley with three additional men. At this time, those two have not been identified.
They may have leads on who the men are. However, that information has not been released yet.
The authorities recovered cell phones that they said were from several people they believe were the suspects. On one of the cell phones, there was a picture of Barnwell with a gun in his hand.
“He can’t have a gun and he did. You’ve seen it in the pictures,” Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said during a video news conference Sunday. “We saw it in the surveillance video last night. This is an ongoing problem. This is the mechanism of death. Far too many weapons out there right now.”
Barnwell allegedly shot 15 times, Steele said. Once Wade was on the ground, he was also allegedly shot by the alleged suspect.
It’s not clear if Barnwell and Wade knew each other.
“The weapon used in this homicide was 45 caliber with an extended mag,” Steele said.
Also, Steele said that none of those involved in this incident were from the area. Wade and his family were from the Philadelphia area.
The last known address for Barnwell was in Upper Darby.
“None of these folks are local to this establishment,” Steele said. “What I will say too, I hope that people at some point get the message not to commit murders in Montgomery County because we solve our murders, and we’re going to hold people accountable for their actions and things that they do here.”
