Whistles chirped, lacrosse balls flew, and dozens of children competed well into the night. The first annual Cullen Keffer Lacrosse Festival, Rob Gartner knew, had been a rousing success. Still, there was one piece Gartner had to table. The lacrosse coach wanted to present Keffer's parents that June day with a jersey honoring their son, one of three Bucks County teens killed in an SUV crash last summer. But the Keffers asked Gartner to demur; the pain still too fresh.

The consensus in court Friday was that Lionel Perez and Loidy Irrizarri were madly in love and not very good for each other. There was the Dec. 3, 2013, incident, when Irrizarri said Perez attacked her with a stick and injured her stomach. But when Perez went to trial in February 2014, court records show, Irrizarri failed to appear and charges were withdrawn. Then there was the morning of March 30, 2014, when Perez showed up uninvited at Irrizarri's Olney house, allegedly drunk and belligerent, and she plunged a 4-inch blade into his neck.

THE BASKETBALL courts at Connell Park in Southwest Philly were packed last night, the thwack of rubber on macadam filling the air. On another night, in another life, Corey Tunnell would have been there, popping off jump shots with his friends. But Tunnell, 16, is gone, claimed by an Aug. 9 shooting that his family describes as an "unfortunate accident" at his aunt's house, up the block from those courts. "I'm still in a cloud. I still can't believe it," Tunnell's paternal grandmother, Caroline Armstrong, told the Daily News last night in her home in Sharon Hill, Delaware County.

A young Cinnaminson man, facing gun charges locally, broke into a gun shop in rural Pennsylvania early Monday and then, authorities said, was shot dead in a soybean field as he confronted police. Authorities are still investigating why Joshua Malave, 18, stole a cache of weapons from the Horseshoe Pike Gunshop in Campbelltown. Lebanon County District Attorney David Arnold said Wednesday that authorities were piecing together what had been going on in Malave's life that led up to the deadly shooting and "what his motivation was" that morning.

PHILLY DAN had his finger on the trigger of a gun, authorities said, when police in Winslow Township, Camden County, shot him in the head during a confrontation last year. It took just under a year for the investigation into the shooting death of Daniel "Philly Dan" St. Pierre, 42, to end and his mother, Linda Auwarter, wasn't exactly surprised by the results. A grand jury last week cleared the six officers involved in the shooting in a trailer on Auwarter's property in rural Winslow on Aug. 1, 2014.
