Thursday, November 02, 2006 Hitman Hunt


Philadelphia police are seeking the public's help in finding a 19-year-old "hired gun" wanted in two drug-related killings.

Chief of Detectives Joseph Fox said Malik Collins should be considered armed and "extremely dangerous" and should not be approached.

Without offering any specifics, Fox indicated that there was a certain urgency to getting Collins off the street now.

He said a manhunt also involving state and federal law enforcement officials was under way to find Collins, whose last known address was 3014 W. Thompson St. in Brewerytown.

Collins is wanted in two fatal shootings. The first, in October 2005, left one man dead on the 1200 block of 29th Street. The second, in June, left one man dead and two others wounded on the 1600 block of Wingohocking Street in Nicetown.

He also is a suspect in a number of other shootings, Fox said.

Police ask that anyone who sees Collins call 911, and that anyone with information about his whereabouts call the Homicide Squad at 215-686-3334.
