Philadelphia cop killing: 2 more suspects arrested in airport garage shooting death

Two more people have been arrested in the shooting death of a Philadelphia police officer who was gunned down last week as he was arriving to work at the Philadelphia International Airport.

Police arrested Alexander Batista-Polanco, 21, from Camden, New Jersey on Tuesday and Hendrick Pena-Fernandez, 21, from Pennsauken, New Jersey on Wednesday. A third suspect, Yobranny Martinez-Fernandez, 18, was taken into police custody on Monday, Fox Philadelphia reported. 

One of the suspects allegedly shot the officers as they attempted to apprehend another suspect. A weapon has not been recovered. 

Authorities don’t believe the officers fired their weapons.
