IT WAS LATE SATURDAY, about 9 p.m., when James Hall double-parked in front of his home in West Philly. He had just gotten back from a shopping trip with his two daughters, his fiancee, Lakisha Robinson, and Robinson's daughter, Aniyah Curry. The group was getting ready to go back out, Robinson said yesterday, so Hall left the car's hazard lights on as he ran inside to grab something. He'd only be gone for a few minutes, he told the others. But in that short span, the family was nearly torn apart by a careless punk in a black sedan.

IRIS MONTANEZ hasn't slept since Friday. The image of Antonio Pedraza, her next-door neighbor and good friend, being shot to death at point-blank range just in front of her doorstep keeps playing over and over again in her mind. "The guy had no reason" to shoot him, Montanez, 41, cried yesterday afternoon at her home on 5th Street near Cambria. "I remember everything. Two days, I don't sleep or nothing, because I've got everything in my head. " In Spanglish and with translation help from her 10-year-old daughter, who also witnessed part of Pedraza's brutal slaying Friday night, Montanez recounted the harrowing ordeal that unfolded on the busy Fairhill block, leaving the 32-year-old man dead on the sidewalk: Pedraza had been out to see the new "Transformers" movie with an ex-girlfriend earlier in the evening, Montanez said.

"IT'S NOT WORTH IT," Theodore Johnson said. He couldn't understand why a New Jersey man allegedly killed his cousin over something as petty as a traffic dispute. "It's silly," he said last night at the Logan house where his cousin, Todd Riley, lived. "It's not worth him dying, and it's not worth that man sitting in prison for the rest of his life. " Riley, 43, whom Johnson described as a kindhearted family man who treated him like a brother, died early Sunday at Temple University Hospital, police said.
