PHILADELPHIA—A 24-year-old man has been charged for allegedly opening fire into a crowd at a Philadelphia playground during a basketball game, injuring six people.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports ( http://bit.ly/Verdjr) Isiah Davis faces six counts of attempted murder, aggravated assault and other counts in connection with the August 2011 shooting in the city's Kingsessing section.

Investigators say a neighborhood feud sparked the shooting, which happened as 500 people were in the bleachers for an adult league game. Witnesses saw a young man cross the court and fire into the crowd.

Walker says police began to focus on Davis after receiving tips. He says Davis turned himself in Wednesday, accompanied by a lawyer.

The identity of the lawyer could not immediately be determined and a telephone listing for Davis could not be found.
