Philadelphia police: Suspect alive, negotiating with cops

Philadelphia police: Suspect alive, negotiating with cops


COMMISSIONER IS ABOUT TO SPEAK WITH. LET’S GO TO THE PRESS CONFERENCE.>>UPDATE BECAUSE IT IS NOT COMPLETELY RESOLVED, BUT I THINK YOU HAVE BEEN INFORMED THAT SWAT WAS ABLE TO SUCCESSFULLY EXTRACT THE TWO POLICE OFFICERS THAT WERE TRAPPED UPSTAIRS, AS WELL AS THREE PRISONERS. THEY WERE ALL TAKEN OUT SAFELY THUS FAR. HOWEVER, THIS MALE IS STILL HOLED UP INSIDE. WE ARE TALKING TO HIM FOR ONE OF THE FIRST TIME, BASICALLY NO MORE THAN 30 OR 40 MINUTES AGO. MAKING A LITTLE BIT OF PROGRESS. APPEARED HIS ATTORNEY WAS ON A THREE WAY LINE, TRYING TO ASSURE HIM WE WEREN’T HERE TO HARM HIM, BUT AFTER THAT CONVERSATION CEASED, WE DO KNOW AND THAT IS STILL ALIVE, JUST TRYING TO APPEAL TO HIM. HE’S GOT A REASON THAT HE NEEDS TO COME OUT AND SURRENDER. RIGHT NOW, WE HAVE GONE FROM A HOSTAGE SITUATION TO A BARRICADE, BECAUSE ALL OF THE HOSTAGES WERE TAKEN OUT SAFELY. AND I CAN’T SAY ENOUGH, WHAT ALL THE RESPONDERS DATA, BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, WHAT S.W.A.T. DID AND ALL OF THEIR SUPPORT, HOMELAND SECURITY, EVERYONE THAT IS INVOLVED, AS WELL AS EVERYONE THAT ASSISTED IN NEGOTIATIONS. BUT AGAIN, WE STILL HAVE A SITUATION NOT COMPLETELY RESOLVED. WE STILL WANT TO GET THIS MALE OUT UNSCATHED. WE DON’T KNOW IF HE IS INJURED. MY CONVERSATIONS WITH HIM, IT DOESN’T APPEAR THAT HE IS, BUT I’M NOT SURE. SO WE WILL KEEP YOU APPRISED, BUT DIDN’T WANT TO KEEP YOU IN THE DARK ABOUT WHERE WE WEAR, AND HAVE YOU JUST HAVE TO SPECULATE ABOUT THE STATUS REGARDING THE POLICE OFFICERS AND THE HOSTAGES. WE ARE VERY, VERY LUCKY, SIX POLICE OFFICERS SHOT IN ONE INCIDENT, IT IS REMARKABLE THAT — I BELIEVE A COUPLE OF THEM HAVE BEEN RELEASED ALREADY, AND SO IT IS NOTHING SHORT OF ASTOUNDING THAT IN SUCH A CONFINED SPACE, THAT WE DIDN’T HAVE MORE OF A TRAGEDY THEN WE DID. SO WE ARE SO THANKFUL THAT THEY WERE ABLE TO GET OUT, WE ARE ABLE TO GET THE OTHER FOLKS OUT. THE PRISONERS THAT WERE IN THERE ARE ALSO UNHARMED. AND I DON’T EVEN KNOW, OR MIRACULOUSLY, HOW THAT HAPPENED, BECAUSE THERE WERE MULTIPLE GUNSHOTS FIRED. HE FIRED SHOTS WHILE I WAS ON LOCATION. HE HASN’T DONE SO IN A WHILE, SO WE ARE OPTIMISTIC THAT THAT MEANS HE IS STARTING TO UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS SOME BENEFIT TO HIM COMING OUT AND SURRENDERING, BUT WE STILL DON’T KNOW IF THAT IS GOING TO BE THE CASE. SO I’M IN A BETTER POSITION TO TAKE SOME MORE QUESTIONS RIGHT NOW THAN I WAS BEFORE. BECAUSE OUR PEOPLE ARE AROUND THERE AND WILL KEEP ME UPDATED AS WE GO FORTH.>>Reporter: HOW MANY OFFICERS HAVE BEEN DISCHARGED?>>Sean: LET ME STEP IN HERE. THAT IS COMMISSIONER RICHARD ROSS JR., PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT. HE HAS JUST CONFIRMED IS UP UNTIL ABOUT 15, 20 MINUTES AGO, RICK LEVENTHAL, BREAKING IT FIRST HERE ON FOX, IN THIS SITUATION WAS FAR WORSE AND FAR MORE PRECARIOUS THAN ANYONE IN THE PUBLIC KNEW. AS, IN FACT, SOME POLICE OFFICERS AND SUSPECTS THAT THEY HAD IN CUSTODY WHO ARE IN THE BUILDING UP UNTIL ABOUT, WELL, 20 MINUTES AGO. AND NOW THE POLICE COMMISSIONER HAS CONFIRMED THEY HAVE BEEN REMOVED. HE ALSO CONFIRMED THAT CONTACT HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED WITH THE ONE REMAINING SUSPECT, AND THEY ARE HOPEFUL TO HAVE A PEACEFUL RESOLUTION AT SOME POINT. AND THE OTHER GOOD NEWS TO COME OUT OF ALL OF THIS, IN SPITE OF SIX OFFICERS CONFIRMED SHOT TODAY, WE EXPECT ALL OF THEM TO SURVIVE. IF TWO ALREADY HAVE BEEN RELEASED. LET’S GO BACK TO THE PRESS CONFERENCE.>>PROTOCOL, THE WAY THEY SEARCHED, THEY CAN SECURE EVERY PART OF THE HOUSE AS QUICKLY AS THEY CAN. AND UNFORTUNATELY, SOME GOT TRAPPED UPSTAIRS. THOSE WERE THE ONES WE WERE TALKING ABOUT, I THINK THEY WERE TAKING GUNFIRE UPSTAIRS, AS WELL, SO AGAIN, A MIRACLE THAT WE DON’T HAVE MULTIPLE OFFICERS KILLED TODAY. BUT WE ARE SO THANKFUL.>>Reporter: [INDISTINCT QUESTION]>>S.W.A.T. WERE SO ADEPT AT DOING THAT. THEY HAVE A SKILL SET THAT THEY WERE ABLE TO UTILIZE TONIGHT, THEY WERE ABLE TO USE STEALTH TO DO IT. AND IT WAS ABSOLUTELY REMARKABLE, THE WAY — TO WATCH THAT UNFOLD. TO DO SO IN LARGE PART WITHOUT HIM BEING AWARE, OR AT LEAST WE DON’T THINK HE WAS AWARE. THEIR BRAVERY, AS WELL AS THE BRAVERY OF EVERY OTHER OFFICER BUT TOOK FIRED TODAY, BECAUSE THEY TOOK FIRED TODAY, AS WELL. JUST ABOUT EVERYBODY AT THAT SCENE DID AT SOME POINT IN TIME.

  1. Police snipers covering every window , doorway , etc. , infrared scopes and tech. observing every human body heat signature in the interior , hyper sound recording every breath , movement sound , etc. … when they are certain they can eliminate their original target it will be over … Philly's police original target won't be allowed to survive unless the Feds. are directing the scene to make sure the target survives for interrogation … just a guess …

  2. No mention of Race, can only mean one thing…

    Wakandan…The pet of The Socialist Democratic Party and THEIR Propaganda Machine, The MSM. 👀🇺🇲🤡🔫🐸🤫👌

  3. He's giving a whole lot of NO information, but they will come 2gether with something. They want our guns…

    Isn't this congressman cummings district?!?!?!

  4. he must not be white are we would have definatly heard about it first thing … and why is home land security on this scene

  5. A lot of bad cops out there… things are getting a little unstable.
    I wonder what really happened.
    Cops murdered a couple and their dog in Houston over bad info on a drug raid.

  6. This is a crazy incident for sure. I live in PA so it’s a big thing… but one of the journalists said this is gonna be national coverage. Why though? It’s just a stand off. I find it odd that now this is all over the news and Epstein info is quiet…. just like that. A distraction

  7. My guns are no going anywhere. The media uses this to spin gun control. No one really knows what's going on with this except the police and criminal.

  8. For those pushing gun control, I have two questions: If gun laws worked, why would there be any need to have them on the federal level(state and/or local government’s would make the gun laws)? After all, if a criminal is willing to break the state and/or local government’s gun laws, why would a criminal care about breaking federal gun laws?

  9. ive been watching since the beginning and everything just sounds really set up. idk who else thinks this? gun control. then Epsteins fishy suicide which no one believes he did right when he was about to out a bunch of powerful people including some Dems.

  10. Good. The police took care of it. The way it should be. This is nothing new people, it's been going on for a long time. The police are finally finding ways to respond faster and smarter to these types of situations. Police everywhere are realizing this is a huge problem and will start figuring out better ways to stop it before anyone gets hurt.

  11. This is what the MSM and Demonrats want. They propose anti-freedom laws and pit police against the people. This is their fault.

  12. Hey everyone i live in philly this is the fakest thing ever! I watched all the coverage it was sooo fake and right away they talked about gun control. It was 100% fake noone got shot they wont ever release a picture or name of the imaginary person. Im so shocked how they lied like this

  13. Deported those who are criminals with illegal guns owning no wonder this country won’t never ever stop the violence cause they support owning guns even those who are criminals that have illegal weapons America shouldn’t never ever sold guns against those who break the law it’s gonna continue like this if our government president nor our political leader doesn’t do something about it it’s there fault in they failed us all Americans citizens

  14. We have to stop playstation xbox and Nintendo for causing all this bloodshed I'm sure everybody over 55 believes this and you're right ; )for the record I'm 39, and waiting for last of us 2, it's an interactive movie

  15. Thank God for the lack of mortality.+ and for the MILDNESS i of the injuries sustained💢™®©🇺🇸

  16. I cannot wait to hear how the deep state fake news media is going to spin this into being Donald Trump’s fault somehow… But God bless all the officers think God there OK

  17. Gun are so easy to get . Whether legal or illegally, it's as easy to by a gun as it is to buy a cell phone .

  18. 1 man 300 cops peeing their pants imagine 300 gunman country would be in lock down cops would be shitting their pants.

  19. Fox didn't block comments here. We will see how disgusting, toxic, hateful and cancerous Fox commentors are. Jesus wept.

  20. What is keeping Swat from arresting him or putting him out of his misery? Don't people have to go to sleep and have work in the morning?

  21. Ummmmm
    If the police will shoot an innocent old couple in their beds, because they cannot read an address, WHY WONT THEY SHOOT A CRIMINAL, at the right address????

  22. So gun control would stop this… right? Or would it just turn into, lunatics like this being the only ones who have guns, and normal citizens, like us, are helpless in the corner…

    But hey, AOC has an armed bodyguard, so everyone is safe. Right?

  23. We need to go head and rally for the police! Hope they have a protest around that neighborhood for the police! And protect our gun rights! Understand that strick gun laws will encourage public shootings!

  24. I wonder if his guns were bought legally with existing background checks and current state and county laws being followed? Hmmmm? Hmmmmmm? Hmmmmm?

  25. One good sniper shot and end it FFS! Stop worrying about him not getting hurt and worry about your shot officers and the citizens.

  26. Epstein could've been alive too.

    A barricade? The evil of walls! Point of privelege: this police person keeps assuming gender. At least the misunderstood person now has a safe space. Clearly, their fault for triggering.

    Fact: If the officer speaking weren't black, it'd be sexist.

  27. Where is Tucker Carlson???
    One America News will surpass Fox News for millions.
    They put that communist Brazille in his place?
    Watch One America News.

  28. One guy shot 6 cop? The whole police force can't even get one guy out? He is by himself now should be more easy to go and get him! He shot 6 cop and they want to be peacefully ? Must be a joke!

  29. Air strike this putz and be done. Tomahawk from offshore sub would end this in about 20 minutes.

  30. They want to take away all the guns LOL criminals don’t follow the law that’s why they are criminals. This is just another gun grab

  31. Why people don’t ask why that happened? Why people don’t ask why such things happen daily? It seems that no one ask that! Am I stupid or are you all stupid?
