Philadelphia officials are hoping a $70,000 reward helps motivate someone to come forward with information about a quadruple shooting that left three people dead this week.

On Tuesday, the Philadelphia Police Department posted a $60,000 while the Philadelphia Housing Authority contributed $10,000 for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.

The shooting occurred Monday around 3:30 p.m. on the 1100 block of Stiles Street in North Philly near PHA apartments and Saint Malachy Catholic School. Three people were killed and another hospitalized in stable condition after the shooting.

“Anything that threatens the safety of our residents or their neighbors cannot be tolerated," said Kelvin Jeremiah, PHA president and CEO. "PHA is calling on the community to help put these cowards behind bars.”

Authorities said two men fired at least 20 shots at the victims before possibly jumping in a gray SUV and fleeing the scene.

Police identified the three men who died as 20-year-old Tyair Jabbar, of Southwest Philly; 32-year-old Ronald Fenwick, of North Philly; and 27-year-old Marcello Robertson, of Hunting Park. The fourth victim, an unidentified 26-year-old man, was shot in the stomach and is currently in stable condition at a local hospital.

Anyone with information is urged to call the PPD at (215) 686-8477 or PHA officials at (215) 684-3350.
