Very sad news coming out of Philadelphia…
18-year-old high school football star Fayaad Gilliard is accused of fatally shooting his twin brother, Suhail Gilliard, a three-time All-Public League running back at Mastery Charter North.
Philadelphia police found Suhail with a gunshot wound to the chest inside their father’s apartment on Sunday around 5:20 p.m.
A source told NBC10 that the brothers were playing with a firearm inside their father’s apartment at Liberty Towers in the neighborhood of Overbrook when the gun accidentally went off.
The source added that Fayaad Gillard initially told authorities his brother was shot by a gunman at a store.
Fayaad Gillard was arrested a day later on charges of murder, possession of a weapon, lying to officials, and obstruction of justice.
My heart breaks for this family.
