    Philadelphia Police Officer Shot and Killed

    A police officer has been shot to death in North Philadelphia. It happened this morning near 20th and Turner Streets not far from Cecil B. Moore Avenue.

    Police Commissioner Sylvester Johnson identifies the officer as 50-year-old Terrence Flomo, a nine-year veteran of the force. He was married and had four children.

    Johnson says Flomo was assigned to an undercover narcotics unit and had gone off-duty about 10pm Thursday night. It's not known why he was in the area where he was shot.

    Police say Flomo was shot several times and found sitting in an unmarked city-owned car that had rolled about a block before coming to rest against some bushes.

    The officer was conscious and talking when taken to Temple University Hospital. He died about 3:05am in the emergency room.

    Police have been questioning several people in connection with the shooting. Police say one man was taken into custody after about an hour barricaded inside a nearby house.

    Johnson says the reason for the shooting is unknown.

    God bless P/O Flomo and his family.

      P/O Flomo is the third brother we've lost this summer, including one in Iraq. Our mourning crepes are getting too much use. We just buried Gerry Pellegrini on Sat. Rest in Peace, P/O Flomo.

            Before being slain, cop argued with hooker

            By G.W. MILLER III & SIMONE WEICHSELBAUM

            After off-duty, undercover narcotics officer Terence V. Flomo argued with a prostitute in North Philadelphia, the woman sought help from a pair of men familiar to the Philadelphia judicial system, police said.

            The two men, William Johnson, 24, and Mumin Slaughter, 23, were arrested last week and charged with the shooting death of Flomo, 50, a nine-year veteran of the police force and father of four.

            Flomo was shot three times while in his car near 20th Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue about 2:19 a.m. on Aug. 26, police said.

            After Flomo was shot, the car rolled south for another block, stopping at Turner Street.

            Flomo, a native of Liberia who immigrated to the United States at age 27, was found slumped over the steering wheel of his unmarked 1996 Ford Taurus.

            He was pronounced dead shortly after 3 a.m. at Temple University Hospital.

            His gun was in its holster, his police radio was on the seat and he had cash in his pocket. Police officials told the Daily News that he also had a box of condoms with him.

            Flomo was dressed in civilian clothes, but he had his badge on a chain around his neck. His shift had ended more than four hours earlier and he was driving a un-marked police vehicle.

            "What I'm hearing is that the cop was out there doing something he wasn't supposed to be doing," said a cousin of Slaughter's who declined to give his name.

            Commissioner Johnson said Flomo's picture will not join those of other slain police officers that is prominent in the police administration headquarters.

            Johnson said the wall was for cops who die in the line of duty and for those who die while off duty but engaged in police action.

            Slaughter and Wiliiam Johnson will face a preliminary hearing on Sept. 21.

            The two suspects, according to court records, have other pending cases against them.

            Slaughter, known as "Mook," faces charges of dealing drugs and of reckless endangerment. He has court dates in October and November.

            William Johnson stands accused of drug dealing and is scheduled to go to court in October.

            In July, Johnson was convicted of possession of marijuana and sentenced to one month in prison.

            The connection between the two suspects and the woman with whom Flomo argued is uncertain.

            On Wednesday, Commissioner Johnson declined to say whether the woman was a prostitute.

            But yesterday, police officials confirmed that detail for the Daily News.

            "You never know what could go on in this area," said Slaughter's cousin, who lives near the scene of the murder.
