15.8.2019

Gunman who shot and wounded 6 Philadelphia police officers arrested after hourslong standoff, authorities say

“Police, put your hands on your head and come out front," police yelled repeatedly through a bullhorn.

All six officers who were shot were transported to local hospitals but later released, Philadelphia police Sgt. Eric Gripp tweeted. Another officer was admitted for injuries"sustained in a vehicle crash related to the incident," Gripp said.

Residents were lingering in the early evening around the perimeter of the crime scene, an area that is typically busy with shoppers, diners and people returning home from work.

On her way home from work, Kiersten Gray saw helicopters and police cars and decided to stop at the scene.

“The sickness of some of the individuals in the world we live in,” she said. “The world is a sad place.”

“Why is this still happening?” she asked. “That was so many years ago."

“We are pinned down in the second floor with three individuals handcuffed,” one officer said calmly amidst the chaotic calls. “You can hear the male moving down stairs on the first floor.”

This is the second major police shooting this week. Three California Highway Patrol officers were shot, one fatally, on Monday after a motorist opened fire during a traffic stop near Interstate 215 in Riverside, California.
