The suspect who allegedly shot six Philadelphia police officers and holed up inside a building for hours has been taken into custody. Authorities say all six officers who were shot have been released from area hospitals.
There's a large police presence and residents are urged to avoid the area.
The officers were struck in various parts of their bodies and one had a graze wound to the head. All six officers who were shot have now been released from area hospitals, police said.
Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross spoke at press conference from the scene of the standoff late Wednesday, pleading for the shooter to turn himself in.
"Despite several attempts to talk to him -- both on the loudspeaker and on telephone -- we have been not been able to make contact with them thus far," Ross said."This is a very volatile situation that is still unfolding, so as a result there's only so much I can tell you about what's going on inside of that property."
Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are at the scene to assist, a spokesperson said.
"Seek shelter. Secure doors. Be silent. Be still. Police are responding," the university tweeted.Read more: ABC News
The black perpetrator. The Suspect of COLOR. The black dude arrested for over 25 violent felonies and who was not prosecuted by a Soros owned prosecutor was allowed to roam the highly GUN CONTROLLED streets of Philly shot 6 LEO's and endangered countless other lives... So the NRA takes money from Russia and does not allow their puppet politicians to create gun control, but allows weapons of war in the streets and unlimited ammunition to the point that makes it almost impossible for police to control the situation. They want to create Chaos.
