When individuals are charged with murder charges in Philadelphia, they often face other charges as well. Firearm charges and drug charges are often associated with murder charges. This article will discuss how these charges are related.
Philadelphia Murder and Firearm Charges
Many murder charges go hand in hand with firearms charges in Philadelphia criminal cases. In a recent Philadelphia murder case, a man, Samir Price turned himself in to the Philadelphia police for the killing of a 14 year old victim. Price, 19, was charged with murder, robbery and firearms charges.
The victim was hanging out with a friend, who is 16 years old, in Northeast Philly when two men ambushed the victim and his friend around 9pm. When the teens tried to run, one of the men shot the 14 year old victim in the chest with a semiautomatic handgun. One of the bullets pierced the victim’s heart. The victim’s friend was unharmed.
Investigators at the time were not aware of any motive for the murder. However, a source later said the two boys may have been targeted because they saw the two men selling marijuana to someone.
Philadelphia Murder and Drug Charges
Another criminal charge associated with murder charge is a drug charge. For instance, a drug dealer sells heroin to a buyer. The heroin is laced with something else, and the buyer dies as a result after use. The buyer would face drug charges and drug induced homicide charges.
Philadelphia Murder, Guns and Drug Charges
Sometimes murder charges also come with both drug and firearm charges. Consider the following: A dealer arranges a deal with a buyer to buy a large amount of heroin. During the transaction, the buyer and dealer get into a heated argument. The dealer shoots the buyer with an unlicensed gun. In such a case, the buyer may face murder charges, as well as drugs and firearm charges.
