What is going on in our democratically controlled cities? Just the other week we had a Congressman’s house broken into in Baltimore.
Now we have a shootout with police in Philadelphia. Multiple media reports are saying five police officers were wounded in a shootout.
The authorities believe there to be two shooters but the situation is still fluid. The situation is still active. Please pray.
From CBS: At least four Philadelphia police officers were shot in Philadelphia’s Nicetown-Tioga section and rushed to the hospital on Wednesday afternoon. Another officer suffered a non-shooting injury during the incident. The officers were taken to Temple University Hospital, where dozens of officers have surrounded the hospital.
Police tell CBS3 that the injuries the officers sustained are believed to be non-life-threatening.
Police say the shooting happened on the 3700 block of North 15th Street, where it’s still an active scene.
Police were first called to the scene for narcotics activity, according to Philadelphia Police Capt. Sekou Kinebrew.
Sources tell CBS3 that the scene is sheer chaos as officers were taking fire. Video from Chopper 3 shows officers with guns drawn at the scene.
