Hill is charged in the shooting death of Alexis Quin (no age given), and Whittington is charged in the shooting death of 22-year old, Kristopher Minners.

Officials from the Philadelphia Police Department said, the two were nabbed by federal marshals, and will be extradited back to Philadelphia to face the charges. The unnamed official also said there will be no bail for the pair.

Police said the two men did not appear to be aiming at any specific target as they fired shots into the crowd on South Street on the night June 4th.

“It appears that they had guns, took them out and just started firing randomly”, Homicide Unit Chief, Joanne Pescatore said, after reviewing the surveillance video from the shooting.

Police said they believe the pair heard shooting coming from up the street, and just began firing at anybody in sight. Police said the original fight that night, began when 34-year old, Gregory Jackson began fighting with another man. The two reportedly went from fighting one another, to shooting at one another on busy South Street, in the blink of an eye. Jackson was killed. The other man was wounded. Police said no charges will be filed in that shooting, because both men had permits to carry, and that shooting is reportedly considered self-defense, according to authorities.
