A Philadelphia man pleaded guilty to shooting and killing a victim in a quiet Delaware County community less than an hour after firing 17 shots at two men.
Derrick Rollins, 25, was convicted Thursday of murder, attempted homicide and aggravated assault.
On July 29, 2017, Rollins shot John Le, 29, in the chest and hand outside a building on the 2300 block of Haverford Road in Haverford Township. Le was taken to Lankenau Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
About a half hour before Le’s murder, Rollins tried to kill two men in Philadelphia’s Overbrook Park section. He fired 17 shots before fleeing the scene.
Rollins spent weeks on the run after Le’s death before being captured in Georgia in August, 2017.
Rollins’ sentencing will take place on April 12.
