U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah vowed Wednesday to seek a 12th term in office next year, not long after he was indicted on federal charges of racketeering, bank fraud, bribery, money laundering, and other crimes. "The voters have to make that decision, but I will be on the ballot in my district, and I will offer myself, and we'll have to live with the judgment that they make," Fattah said in the Capitol. Back home in Philadelphia, the subtle scramble for political positioning to possibly succeed Fattah in the Second District was well underway.

Plans are in motion to transform a historic warehouse on the Camden waterfront into a modern office building with retail space on the ground floor, a project the developer hopes to start by the end of the year. The building at 300 N. Delaware Ave., across the street from Campbell's Field and near the foot of the Ben Franklin Bridge, was built in the late 1800s as the site of the Ruby Match factory. Campbell's Soup later turned it into a food storage warehouse, but it has sat empty for years.

YEAH, DONALD POWERS said, he can still remember everything from that wretched morning last fall when he watched a bullet run into his pregnant neighbor's face. Megan Doto was eight months along in her pregnancy. She had parked herself in a lawn chair in front of the stucco-covered walls of another neighbor's house in Frankford when the stray bullet found her. The 25-year-old died a few hours after she was wounded on Sept. 14. Doctors delivered her baby, but the infant girl survived for only 12 hours.

For nearly a year, Maryann Doto waited for police to catch the man who killed her daughter. In September, Megan Doto, 25, a pregnant mother of two, was hit in the head by a stray bullet as she sat outside her house in Frankford. The bullet also claimed the life of her infant daughter, Nicoletta, who was delivered by C-section and died the next morning. For months, the suspect in the killings remained at large - until Wednesday morning, when he was killed in a Northeast Philadelphia apartment in a shootout with SWAT officers who were there to arrest him. "I don't wish death on anyone," Doto said Wednesday, but she said she had been "praying for this day. " A $40,000 reward was offered in Megan Doto's death, and police identified a suspect within days: Devon Guisherd, 27, a neighborhood man who went on the run soon after the shooting.

A NEW JERSEY probation officer has been suspended without pay after an alleged altercation in Camden with the naked and dripping-wet mother of a man on probation. Police said Arlena Cook was taking a shower on July 7 when Romero Lundy, an officer with the state's Intensive Supervision Program, visited her home on Collings Road to check on her son Ladobe May-Garber, 21, who was on probation for a drug-possession arrest last year. After Cook and Lundy argued about whether he was allowed in the house, the officer allegedly pushed Cook, who was still dripping wet and holding a towel around herself.
