Police say a man has been charged in a stabbing rampage along a Philadelphia street in which police said he randomly attacked people at a cellphone store and inside a car and then killed a man at a mechanic shop.

The death was one of six killings on a violent Tuesday in the city.

Police said the man entered a Cricket Wireless store and stabbed a man in the chest who was paying his bill, then climbed into a car and stabbed the driver in each hand before heading to a nearby mechanic and stabbing 30-year-old Nathan Ackison in the chest as he was watching repairs on his car. Ackson was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital minutes later. The two other victims drove themselves to a hospital and were in stable condition.

Fifty-five-year-old Ronald Stanley is charged with murder, criminal homicide, aggravated and simple assault and related offenses. Court documents don't list an attorney and a listed number for him couldn't be found Wednesday.
