A 16-YEAR-OLD male picked the wrong street to go for a walk with his rifle yesterday.
The teen was carrying a pump-action rifle on Corlies Street near Tasker in South Philadelphia about 4 p.m. when he was spotted by two detectives - one from the Attorney General's Office, the other from the Police Department - who happened to be serving an unrelated warrant on a nearby home, Chief Inspector Scott Small said.
The police detective told the teen to drop his weapon. He didn't, instead pointing the gun at the two law-enforcement officers. In response, the police detective fired his weapon at the teen, pumping off three shots.
