ATF Helping Philly Police Analyze Ballistic Evidence to Help Solve Crimes

For decades, the Philadelphia Police Department only analyzed ballistic evidence needed for trials. Other shell casings collected at crime scenes sat in evidence lockers across the city, reports NBC 10 in Philly.

Two years ago, the department collaborated with ATF to collect and analyze all casing. Now in Philly investigators analyze roughly 65,000 bullets and shell casings every year.

Authorities says it has paid off and helped solve crime.

A woman trying to board a flight was stopped when security found bullet-lined platform shoes with revolvers for heels.

The incident happened at Baltimore-Washington International Airport on Monday, when an unidentified passenger was stopped by the TSA for having the shoes and a bracelet lined with bullets, Time reports. 

“Shoes and bracelets that are less than ideal to wear or bring to a @TSA checkpoint. These delayed a traveler at BWI,” the agency’s spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein posted on Twitter Monday.

The platform shoes were in the traveler’s carry-on bag.

Instead of abandoning her flight, the woman abandoned the shoe and bracelet.

Farbstein reminded travelers, “Realistic replica firearms and ammunition are not permitted past TSA checkpoints.”

In 2015, the TSA found an average of seven firearms a day at airport checkpoints.

WASHINGTON — Though it may not be nearly as perplexing as the D.C. sniper case of 2002, authorities are trying to figure out who has been shooting at buildings in Northern Virginia. All the shootings have happened overnight.

FBI's John Perren

On Thursday, the FBI confirmed that a shooting this week at a vacant Marine Corps recruiting office in Fairfax County is linked to shootings earlier this month at the Pentagon and the National Museum of the Marine Corps, the Washington Post reports. Unlike the sniper case, no one has been hurt.

The Post reported that ballistic tests of bullets found at the scene point to the same weapon.
