God Speed NEFERTITI JAQUEZ XOXO UPDATE: I just got off the phone with NEFERTITI JAQUEZ explains to me that Houston is close to Miami, where she is caring for an ailing relative and the weather is warmer.
Her report also made it onto Twitter, where she wrote the following: “We have learned the Philadelphia Police officer who was shot earlier at 22/Lehigh has died.” That tweet was retweeted at p.m., 48 minutes before Wilson was pronounced. Around the same time that Jaquez’s tweet went out, someone tweeted “Police officer shot dead in Philadelphia” and linked to an NBC10 story online.
It’s unclear what that story said at the time, because it has been updated.
