Man arrested in shooting at police

Posted: November 17, 2011

A West Philadelphia man was arrested this morning by police looking for the gunmen who fired at police when they caught him breaking into a car in North Philadelphia's Longan section Wednesday morning.

James Ceaser, 30, of the 5000 block of Girard Avenue, is expected to be charged with aggravated assault and related charges in the shooting on the 300 block of East Elwood Street.

No one was injured in the shooting, which triggered a major manhunt.

A man taken into custody during the manhunt was released Wednesday evening.
