Six officers shot in Philadelphia released from the hospital

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Police say all six officers wounded by gunfire from a man who has barricaded himself inside a north Philadelphia building have been released from the hospital.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross says “it’s nothing short of a miracle that we don’t have multiple officers killed today.”

Ross says the situation that began about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday has “gone from a hostage situation to a barricade.”

Sgt. Eric Gripp said the suspect was “still armed and inside” the house. But Ross said police had been able to speak to him and were still trying to get him to surrender. He said the man’s attorney was apparently on the line as well.
