WE KNOW THAT THERE WAS A SHOOT OUT, AT LEAST AT ONE POINT, ALL OF THIS BEGAN SOMETIME AFTER 4:30 EASTERN TIME, ABOUT AN HOUR AGO. WE BELIEVE AT THIS MOMENT FROM POLICE REPORTS AND OTHERWISE THAT THERE’S A STANDOFF RIGHT NOW, THAT A SUSPECT OR MULTIPLE SUSPECTS ARE BELIEVED TO BE HOLED UP INSIDE A BUILDING, LIKELY A RESIDENCE, AND THAT POLICE ARE ATTEMPTING TO NEGOTIATE. WE KNOW THAT A NUMBER OF SUSPECTS ARE IN CUSTODY. WE HAVE REPORTS OF ANYWHERE FROM ONE TO THREE SUSPECTS IN CUSTODY. WE DON’T KNOW WHAT BEGAN THIS SHOOT-OUT OR WHO THE OFFICERS ARE WHO WERE INJURED. THIS MOMENT, IT DOES NOT APPEAR THAT THE OFFICERS ABOUT WHOM I’M SPEAKING HAVE LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES. NOW WE HAVE JUST CONFIRMED, FOX NEWS HAS JUST CONFIRMED THE ACTUAL NUMBER OF POLICE OFFICER SHOT IS FOUR. BUT ABSOLUTELY WILD SEEN ON THE NORTH SIDE OF PHILLY, NICETOWN-TIOGA NEAR THE HEALTH CENTER FOR TEMPLE UNIVERSITY. THE LOCAL NEWSPAPER IS SAYING THAT THE FIRST SHOTS WERE FIRED AT ABOUT 4:30 AND THE SPECIFIC LOCATION, 3700 BLOCK OF NORTH 15TH STREET. THE SHOOTER WAS INSIDE THE HOUSE IN THE BLOCK, STILL FIRING SHOTS SHORTLY AFTER 5:00 EASTERN TIME. 30 MINUTES AGO, ONE SHOOTER WAS INSIDE A HOUSE FIRING FROM THAT HOUSE TOWARDS OFFICERS AND OTHERS AS OFFICERS REPORTEDLY RETURN FIRE. ONE OFFICER WAS STRUCK IN THE HEAD, AS I MENTIONED VERY CONSCIOUS, ALERT, COMMUNICATING WITH AUTHORITIES. THEY HAVE A NUMBER OF NEW STATIONS WITH WHOM WE WORK, THE LOCAL CBS STATION IN PHILADELPHIA, THE NETWORK NEWS SERVICE FOR FILE. CVS 10 REPORTING “IT WAS LIKE A SCENE YOU SEE IN A WAR AT A TIME WHEN EVERYBODY WAS HAVING DINNER,” THE ONE OFFICER HIT IN THE HEAD IS CONSCIOUS AND COMMUNICATING.

THAT’S BEEN CONFIRMED BY PHILLY POLICE. AT LEAST ONE SUSPECT IN CUSTODY BUT THERE’S IS A MASSIVE RESPONSE IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA. FIVE PICTURES ON THE GROUND, WE ARE BEING CAREFUL NOT TO SHOW POLICE MOVEMENT. HERE’S HOW IT STARTED ACCORDING TO OUR NETWORK NEWS SERVICE AFFILIATE CVS 10. POLICE WERE CALLED TO THE SCENE FOR ARE NOT — NARCOTICS ACTIVITY. THAT’S ACCORDING TO A PHILADELPHIA POLICE CAPTAIN. FROM NBC 10 IN PHILLY, IT WAS LIKE A SCENE YOU SEE IN WAR AT A TIME WHEN EVERYBODY WAS HAVING DINNER. THIS IS DAYLIGHT. CHILDREN ARE RUNNING AROUND PLAYING. FOX 10, PHILADELPHIA 10, NBC 10 SAYING ITS FOUR PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN SHOT, OFFICER CALLS FOR EVERYTHING YOU’VE GOT, SWAP, LONG GONE. A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIAL CAN BE HEARD SAYING ON AUDIO. AND “I HAVE AN OFFICER SHOT.” FOUR OFFICERS INJURED, SHOT AND INJURED, AT LEAST ONE SUSPECT IN CUSTODY, MAYBE MULTIPLE. AS YOU MIGHT IMAGINE, GETTING INFORMATION IN A SCENE THAT’S SO CHAOTIC. IT’S BEEN DIFFICULT TO DO AND CERTAINLY UNDERSTANDABLE THAT THE AUTHORITIES ARE WORKING TO GET THE SCENE UNDER CONTROL. THE LAST CONFIRMED REPORT WAS THAT THEY ARE STILL SEEKING A SUSPECT WAS HOLED UP INSIDE A BUILDING. WE HAVEN’T GOTTEN AN UPDATE FROM POLICE AND THE LAST FEW MINUTES BUT OUR LAST REPORT, THAT WAS CONFIRMED. POLICE RESPONSE HAS BEEN EXTRA ORDINARY. WE CAN SEE ON OTHER CAMERAS THAT WERE NOT GOING TO SHOW YOU BECAUSE OF THE POLICE CONCERNS THAT THE SUSPECT MIGHT BE WATCHING TELEVISION. THERE ARE OTHER ANGLES I HAVE THAT I’M NOT GOING TO SHOW SO THAT THE SUSPECT WOULDN’T HAVE A CHANCE TO SEE IT. POLICE CARS, DOZENS AND DOZENS, AS MANY AS 100 ON SCENE AND A LARGE PART OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD

  1. Guns are bad because they hurt people. Knives are bad because they hurt people. Household chemicals are bad because they can be used to hurt people. Cars are bad because they hurt the environment and can be used to hurt people. Video games encourage people to hurt people. Words are bad because they can hurt feelings. Let’s outlaw everything and then we’ll have a peaceful utopia, right guys?

  2. Sheriff Clark once told his constituency to not wait on police to get to a crime scene in a short period of time , but instead to arm & protect themselves against those that wish to harm them . Words to remember.

  3. Amoral people hurting those serve and protect the citizenry. I send love and healing energy to the LE officers injured for their speedy recovery.

  4. What is about to be robbed in PHILLY???? This is a distraction…Pay ATTENTION PEOPLE!!!!Forget this scene. Look At your own life!!!!

  5. Why so many police cars, usually they call in the s.w.a.t. team in cases like this, but it won't make me forget about the Epstein case, the cover up and corruption in this country

  6. Strongly appeal to the U.S. police to stop violent law enforcement, exercise restraint! Respect the gunman's freedom to express his or her will and ask the U.S. police to listen carefully! Maintain the freedom to buy and use firearms legally

  7. I think we should all stop paying taxes tell epstein and all others are brought to justice who is with me .shut them down lets stop paying there bills tell they do what we want then to do there job.

  8. We all called this. This is to distract the simpletons away from the fact that Epstein was murdered by elite pedophiles.

  9. Just a reminder America.

    1. Thoughts and prayers

    2. It's not the guns it's mental illness

    3. Do absolutely nothing about the gun violence epidemic

  10. Republican conspiracy theory in
    3…2…1… deep state George sorros media distraction or something else that can't be proven

  11. We republicans can blame immigrants for any economic problems and bailout the coal companies. The same way we blamed immigrants and teachers then bailed-out the financial Industry 2008. Thanks Mitch. Putin tRump 2020. Грязные

  12. 51% of mass shootings…by afro american men. NOW THE WHITE LIBERAL MEDIA DONT WANNA TALK ABOUT WHO IS DOING IT. Notice the HYPOCRISY

  13. This is where we need to take a step back take a deep breath and realize how important police officers are to our everyday lives.. if you're pissed off at them just because they gave you a speeding ticket think about what they go through and think about what their families go through from the time they leave the house until the time they return every single day day after day these are my heroes

  14. Does anybody else think that Shep Smith should go the F away so we don't have to see him or hear from him anymore?

  15. Nowadays its a weakness to be strong if you see someone who think they are the almighty state may they become humiliated dogs

  16. One of those cops is gonna call up his uncle Phil tomorrow and say "A couple of guys they was up to no good, started making trouble in my neighborhood. I need to move in with you in Bel Air"

  17. The Philadelphia Police are now calling on President Trump and Governor Wolf to enact more gun control laws and to let the police police themselves. As for all the other citizens of Philadelphia, it's alright if they become sitting ducks. As long as the police are protected from ordinary citizens. Don't get me wrong, I'm not anti-police. But people need to be able to protect themselves, not only from criminals, but maybe even the police if it ever becomes necessary. There are many people in other parts of Pennsylvania that are setting up booby traps in and around their homes to protect themselves and their families. The same is true of New York, California, and Colorado. The police can't be everywhere at once, and people are beginning to take a pro-active approach to things like this, and believe it or not, it's actually working in the favor of both the citizenry and the police. One homeowner even caught a man wanted for questioning in 3 murders. He was eventually charged, tried, and convicted in two of those murders.

  18. Lefty state. Philly, lots of bent cops. (Ask any PA State Trooper..) Narcotics? In Philly? NAH! hahaha.. The buildings are practically mortared with meth and coke!

  19. People better quit trying to take on the Police….if you need mental help seek it!
    Quit trying to hurt our heroes in the Men in blue.

  20. Just ANOTHER DAY in AMERICA. CRIMINALS DOING WHAT BAD GUYS DO. AMERICA WILL MAKE A MOVIE OUT OF THIS. OH WAIT UP , THERES ALREADY OVER A MILLION MOVIES LIKE THIS .
    GUNS RULE AMERICA. NRA LOVES THE FREE ADVERTISING.

  21. Oh I'm just glad it wasn't a Hispanic being used as distraction, that would've made alot of people forget about Epstein

  22. I don't like this guy shep lama! Lets see how the spin this one to blame Trump! Ill go find the news somewhere else! Where's Tucker.

  23. A Shock & Disappointment! They definitely did'nt barge in the "wrong" home this time. This occupier wasn't a Mum (& or Dad) with a bunch of kids, begging for their lives.

  24. I wonder how a multiple felon got a gun! I thought that was illegal. And, this was in a gun free zone. You mean to tell me people can illegally get guns and bring them into a gun free zone and shoot at people???? Color me surprised! They said that background checks keep guns out of the hands of criminals! And, that gun free zones would be "gun free"! Lies. And another lie is that banning AR-15s will stop mass shootings from happening. I wonder why the media won't tell us that statistically our schools are safer now than they were in 1994. Hey wait, wasn't there an assault weapons ban back then?? But I thought gun bans were suppossed to make us safe from those big…….. bad………evil assault rifles! Something doesnt jive here! Especially since pistols are used in shootings way more often than rifles.

  25. Why don't these police shoot a percussion grenade through a window they do it militarily you guys are ridiculously stupid

  26. Should never have allowed a surrender ,and Obama should be held responsible he’s the one that started the war on cops

  27. It should be mandatory to arm yourself in every major city in the US, this is where the most uncivilized congregate , in large toilet bowls

  28. Reports say the people around them were mocking the police as the bullets were raining down on them. Is this accurate?

  29. All these clowns taunting and throwing things at police officers. Bunch of clowns. Represent your city and neighborhood perfectly. Bunch of F**kin idiots to say the least. Once you see the video of the people it explains a lot. Very low education and parents didnt teach them a single thing growing up. So how can you really blame them. Dems!!
