Philadelphia police arrested 23 year old Brandon Cavanaugh for allegedly shooting at several people inside a Chinese takeout restaurant in West Oak Lane back in March.

Philadelphia Police believe Cavanaugh is the man who opened fire into a Chinese food store late evening on the 19th of March.  In the end, three men were shot and the suspect fled into the night.
