Word's coming in that Philly Police have arrested a North Philly man for the murder of police Officer Skerski. More details when they come in, but for now, I'm going to withhold the name.
A spokesperson just confirmed that someone is custody, and shots may have been fired, but they wouldn't confirm whether the person arrested was responsible for the cop killing.
Channel 3's reporting that the suspect was shot in the leg when confronted at 19th and Chew streets in Olney … apparently Channel 6 had cameras nearby and got footage of the man moments after he was shot .
Philly.com is running with the fact that it was Skerski's killer and tipsters had led investigators to serve searc h warrants looking for him today. They say he's wanted for other crimes in California.
