A man sought on a pair of warrants was shot by U.S. marshals Thursday in the parking lot of a restaurant along the Delaware River, authorities said.
Eugene Dykes Jr. was wanted in connection with a stabbing in South Philadelphia and a violation of his parole on an aggravated-assault conviction, said Tom Smith, assistant chief of the U.S. Marshals Service in Philadelphia.
Marshals and state parole officers on a fugitive task force had received a tip that Dykes would drop off his girlfriend for work at the Chart House restaurant on Columbus Boulevard, Smith said.
About 10 members of the fugitive task force were staking out the restaurant parking lot Thursday afternoon, said Smith.
