A 14-year-old boy who was handcuffed for allegedly dealing drugs at Fifth and Indiana Streets was shot in the thigh yesterday afternoon when a narcotics officer's gun discharged while in the officer's holster, police said. Police said they had not determined how the 9mm Glock semiautomatic went off - whether the officer fired, the gun discharged accidentally or someone from a surrounding crowd grabbed at the gun in the holster. The boy, Juan "Tito" Gonzalez, of the 3000 block of North Mascher Street, suffered a bullet wound to the thigh shortly after 1:30 p.m. He was taken to Temple University Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.

At first glance, the aprons look just like something Betty Crocker might wear while whipping up a batch of brownie mix. Some have floral patterns. Some are edged with lace. And all have holster pockets in case their owners want to pack pistols as they make dinner. "You might call it a fashion statement," said Carris Kocher, their inventor. "It is something that the American woman now flees from because an apron means you're going to be somebody's servant. " But according to Kocher, a Concordville resident, the beauty of America is that even servants have a constitutional right to defend themselves.

Jon Hauptman started an unusual business — holster making — about a year ago in a most unorthodox way: He disclosed virtually all his trade secrets in one YouTube video after another, after another. In some, he did something else seemingly self-destructive: He encouraged viewers to make their own holsters, if they were so inclined. What followed was not a crash-and-burn of Hauptman's start-up, but a groundswell of support from those who watched his videos and were moved to help him get PHLSTER off the ground.

An FBI expert in firearms tool marks testified yesterday that a holster owned by Guy Sileo, former General Wayne Inn co-owner, bore markings consistent with two handguns. "I see a lot of evidence in this particular holster of other firearms being in there," said Special Agent Paul Tangren. The marks are consistent with a .25-caliber Phoenix Arms semiautomatic handgun and a Model 20 Beretta of the same caliber, Tangren said. Sileo, 31, is on trial before Montgomery County Court Judge Marjorie C. Lawrence on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice.

Juror No. 10 was not convinced. Sure, Guy Sileo was a liar and a philanderer. But did that make him a murderer? Then, halfway through deliberations, Max Helo picked up a Beretta .25-caliber handgun. He slid it into a holster once owned by Sileo. And his doubts blew away. "It was a revelation," Helo said yesterday, "like a sign from above. " When the seven women and five men took their first poll about an hour into deliberations Wednesday morning at the Montgomery County Courthouse, Helo was one of two to vote "not guilty.

After rejecting motions for a new trial, Common Pleas Judge Juanita Kidd Stout today sentenced Nathan Long to life in prison for the fatal shooting of Police Officer Daniel Gleason on June 5, 1986. Long, 39, who was convicted of first-degree murder by a jury last November, shot Gleason six times on Sedgley Avenue near 13th Street, near Long's home, where the officer had been called to investigate a disturbance. Since the jury could reach no decision on the death penalty or life imprisonment, Stout, under the law, had to impose life.

After hearing impassioned closing arguments by the prosecutor and defense attorney, jurors began considering the fate of murder suspect Charles "Shovel" Staples yesterday.

Sheriff's deputies who guard prisoners at the Philadelphia Criminal Justice Center use special gun holsters to help ensure their weapons are kept safe. After yesterday's fatal courthouse shootings in Atlanta, in which the assailant grabbed a deputy's gun, the sheriff's chief training officer in Philadelphia, Paris Washington, said local deputies used retention holsters for their loaded Glock 9mm semiautomatics. "A person who has not been trained on how to disengage the safeties would not be able to access those weapons," Washington said.

Every year since then, he and his parents have attended news conferences and pleaded for people to stop firing guns to bring in the new year.

Tony La Russa has a not-so-secret weapon waiting to be deployed. The problem has been that the St. Louis Cardinals' manager has been unable so far to get Mark McGwire to the plate at a point in the game in which he could make an impact on the outcome. The mightiest slugger in baseball today, unable to play in the field because of a sore left knee, has been reduced to a television visual, gazing intently at the field and twisting a bat in his hands while waiting for an opportunity that never seems to come.
