Palm print led to arrest in Pa. drugstore slaying

September 22, 2013

CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Police say the palm print of a convicted felon who was on probation led to his arrest in the shooting death of a southeastern Pennsylvania drugstore manager during an apparent robbery attempt.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 24-year-old David Wiggins, who faces a preliminary hearing Wednesday on first-degree murder and other charges in the killing of 40-year-old Jason Scott McClay, of Broomall.

Authorities say Wiggins and an unknown woman who is still being sought by police walked into a Rite Aid in Chester just before 10 p.m. Thursday and asked McClay, a Navy veteran, for help with a product.

Police say a scuffle ensued and McClay was shot in the head.

Chester police say they identified Wiggins as a suspect within four hours of the shooting, who was arrested Saturday at his Philadelphia home.
