Two police officers were shot late Friday night in West Philadelphia, police reported, including one Penn Police officer. Both were responsive and taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center.
In total, seven people were shot, including the suspect, who was killed by police. A civilian is also dead. Helicopters buzzed overhead above West Philadelphia, and red and blue police lights painted buildings with color in the area of the crime scene, with streets blocked off from 47th to 53rd streets and Market to Pine streets. Local residents stood on their porches, and police redirected bystanders away from the active crime scene.
