Guest kills Jailene Holton at Northeast Philadelphia bar

Guest kills Jailene Holton at Northeast Philadelphia bar
Family members identify the 21-year-old woman killed after an angry patron opened fire at a Northeast Philadelphia bar as Jailene Holton

At least five of the 15 shots fired by an angry patron pierced the front of the Philly Bar and Restaurant in Northeast Philadelphia, and one of those bullets took the life of a 21-year-old woman named Jailene Holton.

“I was on my way home from work when I got the call, and I thought, ‘What do you mean she got shot?”‘ said Jailene’s uncle, James Holton.

The woman killed in the shooting was his niece, 21-year-old Jailene Holton.

“She was a good kid,” Holton said. “She worked and was home a lot. She wasn’t a street person and didn’t go out much. She kept to herself.”

He says she was an innocent bystander ending an evening with friends, unaware she would become the city’s latest victim of gun violence.

Police were called to the Philly Bar and Restaurant in the 2400 block of Welsh Road near Bluegrass Road shortly after 11:30 p.m. Monday. When officers arrived, they found two victims.

A 21-year-old woman was unconscious on the bar floor with a gunshot wound to the head, and a man in his 30s suffered a cut to the face from broken glass.

According to investigators, the incident began when three men entered the bar and caused some sort of disturbance. One of these three men was the ringleader and was described by police as the main perpetrator of the riot.

According to police, it was a struggle for the bar to kick the man out, but when they did, the man walked about 200 feet away to his vehicle and fired 15 shots back into the bar before driving away in a dark pickup truck.

    I hope the family and friends catch this piece of garbage and his buddies that were with him !! Freaking piece of sh*t animals raised by wolves that don’t have a thought in their head because they’re less than maggots. To shoot up a bar and murder a 21 year old girl because you couldn’t play pool because there was a pool league there. Then cry racism. I would say because he cried racism before he shot up the place he should be charged with a hate crime. He claimed that the bar wouldn’t let him play pool because he was black. They tried to tell him it was because there was a police shooting there. So basically he’s the murdering racist.
