Sharon Hill Borough Council Statement on Filing of Murder Charges in Death of Fanta Bility

November 10, 2021

Sharon Hill Borough Council hopes that justice will be served for Fanta Bility with the filing of First Degree Murder charges against AJ Ford and Hasein Strand by District Attorney Stollsteimer.

Borough Council is aware the District Attorney’s Grand Jury investigation is ongoing and awaits the findings of that investigation into the criminal culpability of Sharon Hill Police Officers. The Grand Jury will determine whether the Police Officers’ use of deadly force was justified in response to AJ Ford and Hasein Strand firing their weapons at each other.

To further accountability of all those involved, at its public Council meeting on September 16th the Borough engaged former Philadelphia District Attorney Kelley Hodge of Fox-Rothschild, LLP to conduct an administrative investigation into our Police Department’s policies and procedures to include the conduct of the Officers involved in the incident. Ms. Hodge’s administrative investigation is ongoing.
