Frankford man charged in killing near movie set


A 21-year-old Frank­ford man sur­rendered May 9 to de­tect­ives in­vest­ig­at­ing a murder that took place a day be­fore an ac­tion movie was to be filmed a block away.

An­dre Lo­gan, of the 4300 block of Tack­awanna St., is not the only one charged in the May 7 murder of 18-year-old Robert Sneed of Ogontz. Po­lice ar­res­ted Mi­chael Dingle, 18, on May 10. Dingle, of the 2000 block of N. 22nd St., was taken in­to cus­tody on the 5900 block of W. Walton St.

Po­lice said a quar­rel had led to the shoot­ing shortly be­fore 4 p.m. on May 7. Of­ficers had been called to the 1900 block of Kin­sey St. to in­vest­ig­ate a re­port of a per­son with a gun when they found Sneed on the side­walk. He had been shot sev­er­al times in the torso. The vic­tim was taken to Temple Uni­versity Hos­pit­al in North Phil­adelphia, where he died at 5:16 p.m.

The very next day, the movie Dead Man Down, began shoot­ing in­side the old Globe Dye Works build­ing at Kin­sey Street and Tor­res­dale Av­en­ue.

Lo­gan and Dingle both are charged with murder, con­spir­acy, fire­arms vi­ol­a­tions and re­lated of­fenses, po­lice said.

They both are be­ing held in the Phil­adelphia De­ten­tion Cen­ter. ••
