Philadelphia police responded to an ATM explosion in Mayfair Saturday morning, the latest in a rash of similar occurrences over the past week. Officers were called to a reported explosion inside a Wawa along the 7000 block of Roosevelt Boulevard just before 7 a.m. The Wawa had been boarded up after the looting and civil unrest following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr. Police said the suspect broke into the convenience store through a rear door.
