The motive remains unclear, but the shooter allegedly responsible for opening fire on a vehicle that contained two children in Gray Ferry, remains in jail without bail.

Demarcus Tucker, 26, of North Philly, turned himself in at South Detective Division, 2301 S. 24th St., Friday, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. 

He was charged with four counts of attempted murder, aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person; a count of possession of an instrument of crime; and various firearm violations, according to court records. 

Tucker allegedly shot at a 1996 turquoise Chevrolet Lumina, wounding a 30-year-old man and his 4-year-old son at 7:21 p.m. on the 2700 block of Daly Terrace, Tolliver said. The boy was wounded in the abdomen while his father was struck in his head, arm and back. The man’s 29-year-old girlfriend and her 8-year-old daughter were unharmed.
