I CONTINUE TO WORK SOURCES, THAT IS THE LATEST. EMPHASIS ON NON-LIFE- THREATENING ACCORDING TO THE DEPUTY COMMISSIONER. BACK TO YOU. >>THANK YOU, JOE. THAT IS A MAJOR EMPHASIS FROM THE DEPUTY COMMISSIONER HIMSELF. ON THE WOUNDS OF THE FIVE POLICE OFFICERS WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT THAT WERE INJURED IN THIS CHAOTIC SCENE, ALL OF THE WOUNDS BELIEVED TO BE NOT LIFE- THREATENING. NOW, THE BUSINESS OF TAKING CARE OF FINDING THE GUN MAN. >>THREE OFFICERS ANDERSON AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL RIGHT NOW, ONE AT EINSTEIN HOSPITAL. AGAIN, WE CAN BREATHE A SIGH OF RELIEF THANKFULLY THAT ALL OF THE INJURIES SUSTAINED IN THIS GUNFIRE ARE BELIEVED TO BE NON- LIFE-THREATENING, THAT IS AT LEAST GOOD NEWS OUT OF ALL OF THIS CHAOTIC SCENE UNFOLDING IN THE TIOGA SECTION OF THE CITY. AGAIN, A HUGE POLICE PRESENCE, EVEN AT THIS HOUR, AN HOUR AFTER THE INITIAL REPORTS CAME IN OF NARCOTICS ACTIVITY IN THE AREA, POLICE OFFICERS RESPONDING TO THAT CALL, NARCOTICS UNIT OFFICERS WE UNDERSTAND, TOOK ON GUNFIRE AT THAT POINT, FOUR OFFICERS WOUNDED BY GUNFIRE, ONE WE UNDERSTAND THROUGH THE SOURCE OF JOE HOLDEN, THE DEPUTY COMMISSIONER, ONE OF THE OFFICERS INVOLVED IN A CAR ACCIDENT INJURED IN THAT WAY. AT LEAST FOUR OFFICERS WOUNDED BY GUNFIRE, THREE AT TEMPLE HOSPITAL, ONE AT EINSTEIN HOSPITAL. VERY ACTIVE SCENE STILL UNFOLDING IN TIOGA AS YOU CAN SEE THE MASSIVE POLICE PRESENCE STILL THERE AT THIS HOUR. >>WE CHANGED THE LOCATION A LITTLE BIT, WE WERE AT THE MAJOR INTERSECTION, NOW WE ARE OVER A SIDE STREET IN THE AREA. ONCE AGAIN, WE DON’T KNOW IF SOMEONE HAS BEEN TRAPPED THERE AS FAR AS THE GUN MAN IS CONCERNED, THAT IS A SECOND LOCATION WE ARE LOOKING AT RIGHT NOW, HEAVY POLICE PRESENCE CONTINUES TO BE ON SCENE. WE HAVE SEEN MEDICS, EMTs, PHILADELPHIA AND TEMPLE POLICE, THE SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT, IT ALL STARTED AROUND THE 3700 BLOCK OF NORTH PHILADELPHIA, A MAJOR INTERSECTION. RIGHT NOW, IT SEEMS TO BE CENTERED AROUND THAT SIDE STREET USE ALL RIGHT THERE. IF YOU’RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE AREA, THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE, THERE IS NORTH 15th STREET IN THE NICE TOWN OF TIOGA SECTION OF THE CITY WHEN THIS BROKE OUT AS WE TOLD YOU THIS EVENING THE LAST HOUR, A LITTLE OVER AN HOUR AGO. YOU’RE LOOKING LIVE FROM CHOPPER 3. KIM DAVIS AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, JOE HOLDEN WORKING HIS SOURCES. WE HAVE ONE VERY CLOSE TO THE SCENE RIGHT NOW. THE MEDIA CAN ONLY GET SO CLOSE BECAUSE THIS IS DANGEROUS FOR EVERYONE. WE ARE LETTING THE PROFESSIONALS DO WHAT THEY DO. YOU’RE LOOKING AT THE PROS, THE BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN OF THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT. >>WE WILL GO BACK TO GREG, HE WAS A COUPLE BLOCKS AWAY FROM WHERE THIS UNFOLDED IN TIOGA, 3700 BLOCK. YOU ARE A COUPLE BLOCKS AWAY AT ERIE AVENUE, THAT AREA, IT APPEARS TO BE A DANGEROUS SITUATION, EVEN FOR YOUR DESCRIBING IT A SHORT TIME AGO. WHAT DO YOU SEE NOW? >>Reporter: IT IS STILL VERY ACTIVE, AS YOU MENTIONED, VERY DANGEROUS. POLICE OFFICERS BLOCKING THE SIDE STREET WE WERE ON KEEP PUSHING THE MEDIA AND THOSE LIVING ON THE BLOCK BACK BECAUSE AS WE HAVE BEEN REPORTING ALL AFTERNOON, THIS IS STILL A VERY ACTIVE SCENE. THE ACTUAL INCIDENCE OF THE SHOOTING, YOU LOOK AT THAT STOP SIGN RIGHT THERE HAPPENED AROUND THE CORNER, JUST ABOUT A FEW HUNDRED YARDS FROM WHERE I’M STANDING. YOU CAN SEE OFFICERS ON THIS BLOCK, EVERY FEW MINUTES BECAUSE IT IS STILL AN ONGOING SITUATION, KEEP PUSHING US BACK. YOU HEARD FROM JOE HOLDEN IN HIS REPORTING, FOUR OFFICERS SHOT HAVE NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES, ONE WAS WOUNDED AS HE OR SHE WAS RESPONDING TO THE SCENE. IT APPEARS IN THE LAST FEW SECONDS, YOU CAN SEE SOME OF THE UNDERCOVER OFFICERS, SOME OF THE CLOTHES TO OFFICERS MOVING SOME OF THE VEHICLES AND MOVING AWAY FROM THE SCENE. IT LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE NOT RUSHING WHICH IS A GOOD INDICATION IT MIGHT AT LEAST BE DEVOLVING IN SOME SENSE RIGHT NOW. WE ARE WATCHING THIS LIVE AS YOU ARE AS WELL. WITHIN THE PAST, LET ME GIVE YOUR TIMELINE AS TO WHAT HAPPENED. 4:35 THIS AFTERNOON, THAT IS WHERE RADIO TRAFFIC, STANDARD TRAFFIC REPORTER, ONE OFFICER WAS SHOT, THAT IS WHEN ALL BROKE LOOSE, OFFICERS FROM AROUND THE CITY CENTERING THEIR ATTENTION ON RESPONDING AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE TO THIS SCENE, THE 3700 BLOCK OF NORTH 15th STREET. ONCE AN OFFICER IS DOWN, IT IS BASICALLY ALL HANDS ON DECK. US IN THE MEDIA, WE TRY TO GET HERE AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE, YOU CAN IMAGINE WITH SUCH A SERIOUS SITUATION, IT TAKES TIME, ROADS ARE CLOSED, CRIME SCENE TAPE GOES UP. THIS IS A SITUATION RIGHT NOW, WE ARE HEARING POSSIBLE, I COULD NOT TELL IF THAT WAS GUNSHOTS OR SOMETHING FALLING. BUT THERE ARE OFFICERS TAKING COVER BEHIND THIS VEHICLE RIGHT NOW. WE ARE OKAY FROM OUR VANTAGE POINT RIGHT HERE, OFFICERS ARE NOW CROUCHING DOWN BEHIND ONE OF THE PATROL CARS. THERE APPEARS TO BE 3 TO 4 RAPIDFIRE SHOTS. I CANNOT SEE, THERE ARE OFFICERS TAKING COVER NOW, IF YOU LOOK IN THE DISTANCE. WE ARE GOING TO STAY BACK HERE. THERE ARE MULTIPLE OFFICERS RUNNING, A POSSIBLE, I’M JUST RELAYING WHAT I’M SEEING. WE ARE TAKING COVER ASIDE A CAR AND A HOME HERE ON THIS BLOCK. OFFICERS DRAWING THEIR WEAPONS AND KEEPING US BACK. THERE APPEARS TO BE POSSIBLY 3 TO 4 SHOTS BEING FIRED, ABOUT 30 SECONDS AGO, OFFICERS NOW BACK IN THE DEFENSIVE POSITION NOW, GUYS. THERE ARE SOME TAKING COVER. I CAN SEE BEHIND ONE OF THE ROADS HERE, OTHERS TAKING COVER BEHIND THEIR PATROL VEHICLES. WE ARE LETTING THIS PLAY OUT RIGHT NOW, THIS HAPPENED IN THE PAST MINUTE. YOU CAN SEE IN THE DISTANCE, I DON’T KNOW MATT, IF YOU CAN SHOP, ONE OF THE RESPONDING VEHICLES WITH THE LIGHTS AND SIRENS HEADING NORTHBOUND. LIKE I MENTIONED, WE HEARD WHAT APPEARED TO BE POSSIBLY 3 TO 4 SHOTS JUST GOING OFF. THAT IS WHAT I INTERPRETED, THE OFFICERS HERE ON SCENE TOOK DEFENSIVE DECISIONS. IT SEEMS TO BE SLIGHTLY GETTING CALMER. YOU CAN SEE OFFICERS DOWN THIS BLOCK HERE, WE ARE ABOUT A BLOCK OR SO FROM THE 3700 BLOCK OF NORTH 15th STREET. THERE ARE MORE SHOTS BEING FIRED RIGHT NOW. MULTIPLE SHOTS BEING FIRED, I DON’T KNOW IF YOU CAN HEAR THAT. IT DOES NOT APPEAR IT IS HAPPENING DIRECTLY ON THIS STREET. BUT THERE IS SOMETHING HAPPENING RIGHT NOW, I DON’T KNOW IF THIS IS OFFICERS WHO ARE ENGAGING WITH THE SUSPECT OR SUSPECT POSSIBLY ENGAGING WITH OFFICERS RIGHT NOW. WE HAVE HEARD TWO VOLLEYS OF GUNSHOTS. ONE HAPPENING NOT TWO MINUTES AGO, IT APPEARED TO BE 3 TO 4 AND ANOTHER 10 SECONDS AGO, OFFICERS TAKING DEFENSIVE POSITIONS, THERE WERE ABOUT AT LEAST 40, PULLBACK IF YOU CAN’T, 40 OFFICERS GATHERED IN THIS INTERSECTION RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME, WHICH IS VERY CLOSE TO WHERE THE SHOOTING HAPPENED. THEY HAVE ALL RETREATED EITHER INTO ROW HOMES ON THIS BLOCK OR BEHIND THEIR POLICE VEHICLES. WE SEE MULTIPLE OFFICERS RUNNING AND TAKING COVER. FORTUNATELY, WE ARE STANDING A BLOCK BACK HERE AS THIS IS UNFOLDING. SO FAR, GUYS IN THE PAST FIVE MINUTES, WE HAVE HAD TWO VOLLEYS OF GUNFIRE. AND THIS IS A SITUATION RIGHT NOW, PRETTY SCARY ONE. TO GIVE YOU THE IDEA OF EXACTLY WHERE WE ARE, WE ARE ON THE 3600 BLOCK OF NORTH SINDEN PAM STREET AT THE INTERSECTION YOU’RE LOOKING AT WHERE THE STOP SIGNS ARE, THAT IS A WEST ERIE AVENUE, THIS ALL HAPPENED ON THE 3700 BLOCK OF NORTH 15th STREET, WHICH I BELIEVE IS ONE BLOCK TO MY EAST. SO, ONE BLOCK EAST, THAT APPEARS TO BE APPROXIMATELY WHERE THE SOUNDS OF THE GUNSHOTS, THE TWO VOLLEYS HAVE JUST OCCURRED. I’M GOING TO PAUSE ONE SECOND TO SEE IF I CAN HEAR ANYTHING. >>GREG, WHILE YOU ARE PAUSING, MAKE SURE YOU AND THE CREW ARE ALSO IN A SAFE POSITION. OKAY? MAKE SURE YOU AND THE CREW ARE IN SAFE POSITION. >>WE ARE, WE ARE MIDWAY DOWN THE BLOCK. YES, THANK YOU. WE ARE TAKING PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES. WE ARE HALFWAY DOWN THE BLOCK, BEHIND THE POLICE CRIME TAPE. WE ARE NEAR A ROW HOME THAT CAN PROVIDE SOME COVER. THE OFFICERS IN THIS INTERSECTION, IN JUST THE PAST FIVE MINUTES HAVE ALL RETREATED. THERE WERE TWO VOLLEYS OF GUNFIRE. IT APPEARS THINGS ARE SETTLING DOWN A LITTLE BIT. I DID NOT SEE WHERE EXACTLY THE GUNFIRE WAS COMING FROM. IT WAS CLEAR, I HEARD IT, IT SEEMED VERY CLOSE. OBVIOUSLY, AS I’VE BEEN REPORTING, THE ACTUAL SHOOTING SCENE IS ONE BLOCK TO MY EAST, TO MY RIGHT, YOU’RE LEFT. THAT IS WHERE THE INITIAL CALLS CAME THROUGH, LIKE I SAID, THERE WAS A LARGE POLICE PRESENCE. YOU CAN STILL SEE THE LARGE POLICE PRESENCE. THE OFFICERS GATHERING IN THAT INTERSECTION UP UNTIL FIVE MINUTES AGO WHEN TWO VOLLEYS OF GUN SHY OR BROKE OUT AND THEY TOOK DEFENSIVE POSITIONS. THIS WILL GO ON FOR SOME TIME, AS WE HAVE BEEN REPORTING, FOUR OFFICERS SHOT WITH NON-LIFE- THREATENING INJURIES ACCORDING TO JOE HOLDEN. ONE OFFICER WE ARE TOLD WAS WOUNDED AS HE OR SHE WAS RESPONDING TO THIS SCENE, STILL A VERY CHAOTIC AND TENSE SITUATION WITH ACTIVE GUNFIRE. I DO NOT KNOW, I DID NOT WITNESS THE GUNFIRE, WHERE IT CAME FROM. POLICE OR THE SUSPECT THAT APPARENTLY MAYBE STILL NOT APPREHENDED, NOT IN POLICE CUSTODY JUST YET. RIGHT NOW, YOU CAN SEE THE OFFICER ON THE RIGHT, OUR PHOTOJOURNALIST, YOU CAN SEE HIM TAKING DEFENSIVE POSITION AROUND THE CORNER. WE ARE STAYING BACK BECAUSE AS IMPORTANT AS IT IS TO GET EVERYONE THE INFORMATION, WE DON’T WANT TO GET INJURED IN ANY OF THIS. POLICE OFFICERS AT THIS SCENE, RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER FROM THE MAIN SITUATION, ARE TAKING DEFENSIVE POSITIONS AS WE SPEAK. THESE TWO VOLLEYS OF GUNFIRE ERUPTING IN THE PAST FIVE MINUTES OR SO. >>GREG, IF WE COULD JUST — >>ESPECIALLY FROM OUR VANTAGE POINT, GO AHEAD. >>YEAH, WE WANT TO INTERJECT, WE ARE SO HAPPY YOU GUYS ARE SAFE. WE WANT YOU TO STAY SAFE OUT THERE, WE ARE HAPPY YOU’RE TAKING COVER AND PROTECTING YOURSELF AS WELL. WE WANT TO REITERATE THE FACT THIS HAS BEEN A VOLATILE SITUATION FROM THE VERY BEGINNING WITH OFFICERS SAYING EVEN WHEN THEY GOT THERE, AFTER THE SHOOTING OF THE FOUR POLICE OFFICERS, THEY WERE STILL TAKING FIRE, TAKING FIRE EVEN AT THAT POINT. OBVIOUSLY, THIS IS STILL INVOLVING AND A VERY ACTIVE SITUATION THERE. IT WOULD APPEAR, IF YOU ARE HEARING GUNFIRE STILL, EVEN NOW, THIS SUSPECT OR SUSPECTS ARE STILL OUT THERE IN THAT AREA SOMEWHERE. BUT THEY HAVE BEEN TAKING FIRE FROM THE VERY BEGINNING FROM WHAT WE UNDERSTAND. >>IT DOES. IT DOES APPEAR JUST LIKE YOU MENTIONED, NATOSHA. THERE IS STILL AN ACTIVE SITUATION, ACTIVE VOLLEY BETWEEN POLICE AND SUSPECT OR SUSPECTS ON THE 3700 BLOCK OF NORTH 15th STREET. THE GOOD THING RIGHT NOW, IF YOU TAKE A LIVE LOOK, YOU CAN SEE OFFICERS WALKING DOWN WEST ERIE STREET, THEY DON’T APPEAR TO BE RETREATING WHICH IS A GREAT SIGN. WHEN THOSE VOLLEYS OF GUNFIRE ERUPTED, EVERYONE TOOK POSITION, THEY WENT TO A SAFE POSITION TO OF COURSE KEEP THEMSELVES SAFE AND POSSIBLY ENGAGE IN THAT SUSPECT. THAT GENTLEMAN YOU SEE WEARING THE WHITE SHIRT, HE IS A COMMANDING OFFICER OF SOME SORT, PERHAPS A CAPTAIN. THOSE ARE THE OFFICERS IN CONTROL OF THE SITUATION. MASSIVE POLICE PRESENCE. I WANT TO REITERATE HOW LARGE OF A POLICE PRESENCE THIS IS. JUST ON THIS INTERSECTION ALONE, AT ONE POINT, I’M LOOKING AT AT LEAST 2 TO 3 DOZEN CLOTHES AND PLAINCLOTHES OFFICERS GATHERING HERE. THIS IS ONE INTERSECTION OF A VERY LARGE CRIME SCENE, THIS IS ALL STARTING AROUND 4:35 THIS AFTERNOON WITH REPORT OF ONE- UPPER SURE SHOT AND SINCE THEN ACTIVE GUNFIRE, FOUR OFFICERS CONFIRMED WITH CBS THREE, INJURED, FORTUNATELY WITH NON- LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES. A FIFTH OFFICER INJURED PERHAPS AS HE OR SHE WAS RESPONDING TO THE CALL. THAT RESPONSE WAS INCREDIBLE, SHOCKED AND ALL PERHAPS, SO MANY OFFICERS ARRIVING FROM THE SCENE FROM ALL DIRECTIONS OF THE CITY, WE SAW TWO DOZEN OFFICERS IN MARKED AND UNMARKED POLICE CARS ARRIVING ON THE SCENE. RIGHT NOW, IT SEEMS TO HAVE CALMED DOWN, CLOSE TO THE 3700 BLOCK OF NORTH 15th STREET. WE WILL STAY ON SCENE AND STAY SAFE AND PROVIDE YOU ANY UPDATES AS THEY HAPPEN. HOPEFULLY, THIS WRAPS UP SOON AND THE SUSPECT OR SUSPECTS ARE PLACED UNDER ARREST. >>GREG, YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY IN A RESIDENTIAL AREA. FROM YOUR VANTAGE POINT, OUR PEOPLE TAKING HEED AND SHELTERING IN PLACE, AVOIDING WINDOWS, WHAT ABOUT PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY? >>Reporter: I WILL SPIN AROUND, YOU CAN SEE FOLKS GATHERED HERE, PEOPLE ARE ON THEIR CELL PHONES, THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE INSIDE THEIR HOMES BUT FOR THE MOST PART, EVERYONE IS STAYING BEHIND THIS POLICE TAPE. THIS IS AS CLOSE AS YOU CAN GET TO WHERE THE THE ACTION IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. BUT AT LEAST A FEW DOZEN FROM THIS NEIGHBORHOOD HAVE GATHERED, EVERYONE RECORDING WHAT IS GOING ON. WHEN THE FEW VOLLEYS OF GUNFIRE HAPPENED, PEOPLE TOOK COVER, MOVED TO THE SIDES OF THE HOMES HERE TO GIVE THEMSELVES A LITTLE BIT OF PROTECTION IN CASE ANYTHING HAPPENED. POLICE ARE VERY PROACTIVE MAKING SURE EVERYONE STAYS SAFE, THEY MOVED US BACK SINCE WE ARRIVED AT LEAST TWICE. WE WERE VERY CLOSE TO THAT INTERSECTION WHEN WE FIRST ARRIVED HERE ABOUT AN HOUR AGO OR SO, ABOUT 45 MINUTES AGO OR SO. AND EVER SINCE, WE HAVE BEEN MOVED BACK, WHICH IS A GOOD THING QUITE FRANKLY BECAUSE THIS IS STILL AN ACTIVE SCENE. >>I’M ALSO THINKING ABOUT THE PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN THE ROW HOMES BEHIND YOU THAT ARE PROBABLY IN THEIR HOMES RIGHT THROUGH THE THICK OF IT ALL. THAT CONCERNS ME AS WELL, I’M SURE POLICE HAVE THEM IN THEIR HOMES. >>IF YOU CAN SEE, I WANT TO SHOW FROM THIS ANGLE, I DON’T KNOW IF YOU CAN POINT OUT, THAT IS ONE OF THE ROW HOMES. YOU CAN SEE OFFICERS TAKING POSITION ON THAT PERSON’S FRONT PORCH, IN FRONT OF THAT HOME. YOU CAN COUNT THEM, I SEE AT LEAST A DOZEN OFFICERS. THERE ARE PEOPLE, WE ARE IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA, THAT TIOGA SECTION, VERY POPULAR DENSE SECTION OF OUR CITY. YOU CAN SEE BASICALLY RIGHT NOW, A MASSIVE CRIME SCENE MULTIPLE BLOCKS AND HUNDREDS OF OFFICERS I WOULD ASSUME THROUGHOUT THIS AREA ARE HERE TO TRY TO RESOLVE AND END THIS SITUATION. YOU KNOW, WENT ACTIVE GUNFIRE IS HAPPENING BETWEEN POLICE AND SUSPECTS IN A HEAVY POPULATED ú COULD HAPPEN, INNOCENT BYSTANDERS COULD GET HIT, OFFICERS COULD GET HURT OF COURSE. THAT IS WHAT OFFICERS ARE TRYING TO PREVENT, INTO THIS SAFELY AND PEACEFULLY, OF COURSE WITH FOUR OFFICERS SHOT, THAT PIECE HAS LEFT THE AREA. HOPEFULLY, NO ONE ELSE WILL GET INJURED IN ALL OF THIS. IN THE PAST 20 MINUTES, ACTIVE GUNFIRE HAPPENING AROUND THE CORNER HERE. [ CLASS IS BEING POLLED ] TAKING DEFENSIVE POSITIONS USING PEOPLE’S FRONT PORCHES TO BASICALLY MONITOR THE SITUATION. IF YOU LOOK AT THERE, YOU CAN SEE AN OFFICER CROUCHING BEHIND THE FRONT PORCH WITH TWO DOZEN OR AT LEAST ONE DOZEN OFFICERS IN FRONT OF THAT HOME. THOSE OFFICERS ALL TOOK DEFENSIVE COVER POSITIONS WHEN THE VOLLEYS RING OUT A FEW MINUTES AGO. IT SEEMS AT LEAST RIGHT NOW, THERE HAVE NOT BEEN ANY CHATEAU FIRE, THAT COULD CHANGE IN A MOMENTS NOTICE. WE WERE REPORTING ABOUT THE SITUATION WHEN WE HEARD THOSE TWO VOLLEYS. WE ARE GOING TO GIVE IT BACK TO YOU GUYS IN THE STUDIO. RIGHT NOW, VERY TENSE SITUATION, THE COMMUNITY GATHERING HERE AND POLICE MAKING SURE AS BEST THEY CAN EVERYONE STAYS SAFE OR IN THESE HOMES AND IN THIS COMMUNITY AS THIS INCREDIBLY DRAMATIC SCENE IS UNFOLDING RIGHT NOW AT THE TIOGA SECTION OF PHILADELPHIA. >>VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION FOREVER AND IN THE AREA, THE RESIDENTS, POLICE, VERY ACTIVE SCENE. THANK YOU SO MUCH, WE WANT YOU TO STAY SAFE OUT THERE AS WELL. >>YOU ARE WATCHING LIVE COVERAGE ON CBS 30. GUNFIRE IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA, FOUR OFFICERS SHOT, ONE OFFICER INJURED. WE ARE WAITING TO FIND OUT THE EXTENT OF THAT INJURY AND IT STARTED AROUND 4:30 THIS EVENING AFTER A CALL TO THE NARCOTICS DIVISION AND THAT IS WHEN EVERYTHING, CHAOS BROKE LOOSE. JOE HOLDEN WAS TELLING US SOME OF HIS CONTACTS CALL IT SHEER CHAOS. YOU ARE LOOKING AT WHAT IS LEFT OF IT RIGHT NOW, IT IS STILL NOT RESOLVED. >>CERTAINLY NOT RESOLVED AS YOU HEARD GREG ARGO’S SAY HE WAS HEARING GUNFIRE, EVEN AS CLOSE AS IF YOU MINUTES AGO IN THE WEST ERIE AVENUE AREA JUST AROUND THE CORNER FROM WHERE THE SCENE STARTED AT THE 3700 BLOCK OF NORTH 15th STREET IN TIOGA, VERY FRIGHTENING SCENE AS YOU CAN IMAGINE FOR RESIDENTS THERE WHO ARE LOCKED DOWN INSIDE THEIR HOMES OR KEPT AT BAY AS FAR AS POSSIBLE AS THE SCENE PLAYS OUT. STILL A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION FOR POLICE OFFICERS, RESIDENTS. WE UNDERSTAND NOW THE COMMISSIONER, RICHARD ROSS, MAYOR KENNEY ARE GOING TO TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, MAY BE THERE AT THIS POINT. WE KNOW THE DA, LARRY KRASNER AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, THAT IS WHERE EVERYONE IS GATHERING BECAUSE THE BULK OF THE OFFICERS WERE TAKEN THERE. FOUR OFFICERS SHOT, ONE INJURED POSSIBLY IN A CAR ACCIDENT RESPONDING TO THIS SCENE. FOUR OFFICERS SHOT WITH NON- LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES, THREE OF THEM AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, WHICH IS VERY CLOSE TO WHERE THIS SCENE UNFOLDED. >>I’M JUST RECEIVING WORD, WE WILL CONFIRM THIS, THE FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE TOLD ONE OF OUR CREWS, THE TOTAL IS SIX OFFICERS HAVE BEEN SHOT AND OR INJURED. WE KNOW ONE HAS BEEN INJURED, NOW JOHN MAGNUS B OF THE FOP TOLD OUR CREW THE TOTAL IS SIX. WE ARE WORKING TO CONFIRM THAT. YOU CAN SEE THE WORDS AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN, SIX PHILADELPHIA POLICE OFFICERS, ONCE AGAIN ONE INJURED GOING TO RESPOND TO THE SCENE. WE ARE STILL TRYING TO FIND OUT ABOUT THE 6th OFFICER FROM JOHN MAGNUS B TO SEE IF HE OR SHE WAS SHOT OR INJURED. THIS SITUATION CONTINUES. >>THIS IS LOCKDOWN MODE FOR THE RESIDENTS IN THAT AREA, ALSO NEARBY TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, WE KNOW SOME OF THEIR FACILITIES IN LOCKDOWN MODE AS WELL AT THIS POINT AS POLICE TRY TO CONTINUE TO NAVIGATE THE SCENE WHICH IS STRETCHING SEVERAL BLOCKS AS YOU CAN SEE WITH SCORES AND SCORES OF POLICE OFFICERS FLOODING THAT AREA, HAVE FLOODED THAT AREA THIS AFTERNOON. THIS CAME IN AS A DRUG ACTIVITY CALL IN THAT NEIGHBORHOOD, WE ARE NOT EXACTLY SURE HOW ALL OF THIS EVOLVED INTO WHAT IT HAS NOW WITH SIX POLICE OFFICERS FROM WHAT WE UNDERSTAND, SHOT OR INJURED IN SOME WAY RESPONDING TO THIS NARCOTICS ACTIVITY IN THAT AREA AT ABOUT 4:30 THIS AFTERNOON. >>LET’S GO THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE CENTER WILL AND CHECK IN WITH JOE HOLDEN. I BELIEVE YOU HAVE NEW INFORMATION FROM YOUR SOURCES. >>I DO, GUYS. THAT EVENING, WE ARE GETTING INFORMATION FROM THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT, THIS ACTIVE FIREFIGHT, THIS GUN BATTLE IN THEIR WORDS STILL ONGOING. THEY DESCRIBE THE MAIL SHOOTER INSIDE THE PROPERTY. I ALSO HAVE CONFIRMATION FROM TWO SOURCES, HIGH RANKING WITH THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT, CONFIRMATION, NONE OF THE INJURIES APPEAR TO BE LIFE-THREATENING AT THIS POINT. THAT IS CONTINUED GOOD INFORMATION DESPITE WHAT IS A HORRIBLE AFTERNOON IN THE CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE. I SPOKE TO COMMUNICATIONS STAFFERS FOR MAYOR JIM KELLY THE LAST 20 MINUTES, THEY CONFIRMED THE MAYOR HAS BEEN BRIEFED AND HE HAS CONTINUED TO MONITOR THE SITUATION. AT LAST CHECK, HE WAS ON HIS WAY TO TEMPLE UNIVERSITY EMERGENCY ROOM TO BE WITH THE POLICE COMMISSIONER AND OTHER HIGH-RANKING LAW ENFORCEMENT HERE IN THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA. AS I’M LOOKING AT IMAGES AND IMAGES FROM THE SCENE PLAYING OUT HERE HIGH ABOVE THE NEIGHBORHOOD THERE, IT APPEARS POLICE MAINTAIN AN EXTREMELY HIGHLY CONCENTRATED DEFENSIVE POSTURE. LISTENING TO GREG’S LIVE REPORT WAS BONE CHILLING BECAUSE IT WAS SUGGESTED POLICE CONTINUE TO TRY TO OBVIOUSLY BRING THIS TO AN END AND AS THEIR EFFORTS CONTINUE ON TO GROUND, AS WE ARE WATCHING FROM THE AIR, THERE APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN NO LET UP OR STAND DOWN IN THIS VICINITY AS WE ARE WATCHING AND DESCRIBING THESE MOMENTS FOR YOU. MY SOURCES AGAIN, IT IS IMPORTANT TO EMPHASIZE AT THE MOMENT, THOSE INJURED, WE ARE REPORTING SIX PHILADELPHIA POLICE OFFICERS HAVE EITHER BEEN WOUNDED OR INJURED. GUNBATTLE AND MELEE IN THE CITY’S NICE TIOGA SECTION. ALL OF THOSE INJURIES APPEAR NON-LIFE-THREATENING AND ONE OF THE INJURED, THOSE INJURIES SUSTAINED WHILE ON GROUP. GREG WILL BRING US UP TO SPEED. THANK YOU SO MUCH, WE ARE WALKING ON NORTH 15th STREET. IF YOU CAN HEAR ME, A VOLLEY OF GUNFIRE JUST ERUPTED IN THE PAST 10 SECONDS. WE ARE ONE BLOCK TO THE EAST, THAT ACTUAL INITIAL CALL WAS ON THIS STREET. WE WILL GO AS CLOSE AS WE CAN, MY COLLEAGUE, PHOTOJOURNALIST IS HERE WITH US, HE TOLD US TO GO TO THIS SIDE. SORRY FOR BEING OUT OF BREATH HERE, THERE IS A LOT HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. WE JUST HEARD THAT OTHER VOLLEY OF GUNFIRE. YOU CAN SEE PHILADELPHIA POLICE TAKING THAT DEFENSIVE POSITION. LET ME GET OVER HERE REAL QUICK. AND TAKING THAT OFFENSIVE POSITION ON 15th STREET AND ERIE AVENUE, ALONG THE SIDE OF THE WALL RIGHT NOW. THE PHOTOJOURNALIST I’M WITH SAID THEY JUST WENT INTO THIS HOME. THIS IS AN INCREDIBLY TENSE SITUATION. I WANT TO MAKE SURE I’M TALKING TO MY PHOTOJOURNALIST, MATT, IF MORE GUNFIRE ERUPTS, WE WILL TAKE A DEFENSIVE POSITION BEHIND THIS RED CAR IN FRONT OF US. RIGHT NOW I’M TOLD BY OUR SECOND PHOTOJOURNALIST CREW ON SCENE, WITHIN THE PAST TWO MINUTES, AS JOE TALKS TO ME LIVE, THERE WAS POLICE ACTIVITY, POLICE ENTERING THE BUILDING WHERE THIS SUSPECT MAY BE HOLED UP IN. WE HEARD ANOTHER VOLLEY A FIRE, I WOULD SAY, WOULD YOU SAY 4 TO 5 SHOTS ERUPTED, WE TOOK COVER OF COURSE. AND THOSE SHOTS HAVE SUBSIDED. I THINK YOU ARE LOOKING LIVE RIGHT NOW AT THE CORNER OF ERIE STREET, WE ARE ON 15th NOW, WE WERE ONE BLOCK TO THE WEST. THIS IS THE EXACT LOCATION WHERE THE INITIAL CALL CAME FOR THE ONE OFFICER SHOT, AS YOU HEARD FROM MY COLLEAGUE, JOE, SIX OFFICERS INJURED, WE BELIEVE FIVE SHOT. FORTUNATELY, JOE IS REPORTING THESE ARE NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES. I’M TELLING YOU, THIS IS INCREDIBLE, I’M SORRY, SIX SHOTS, WE CONFIRMED. RIGHT NOW, IT APPEARS FROM MY COLLEAGUE, WHO IS HERE MOMENTS BEFORE I WAS, POLICE HAVE ENTERED THE BUILDING WHERE THE SUSPECT OR SUSPECTS ARE CURRENTLY INSIDE. WE WILL KEEP THIS LIVE PICTURE GOING AS FAR AS WE CAN. I WOULD ESTIMATE THERE ARE AT LEAST ON THIS SIDE OF THE HOME, TWO DOZEN OFFICERS, WE SEE MEMBERS OF THE S.W.A.T. TEAM, I SEE COMMANDING OFFICERS, PHILADELPHIA BIKE OFFICERS, TEMPLE POLICE AND WITHIN THE TWO MINUTES WE HAVE ARRIVED HERE, THEY HAVE JUST ENTERED THE BUILDING. THAT WAS FOLLOWED BY A SERIES OF WHAT APPEARS TO BE GUNSHOTS. EVERY ONE OF THE OFFICERS, AS YOU CAN TELL, TAKING THAT DEFENSIVE POSITION. THEY’RE NOT WALKING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET OF COURSE. THIS IS AN ACTIVE SCENE, THE TENSION ON THIS BLOCK, THERE FOCUSED ON APPREHENDING WHOEVER IS INSIDE, WHOEVER HAS BEEN FIRING AT POLICE NOW FOR THE PAST HOUR AND 20 MINUTES. THIS ALL BEGAN AT 4:35 APPROXIMATELY 4:35 THIS AFTERNOON WITH THAT INITIAL REPORT, INCREDIBLE POLICE RESPONSE. OFFICERS FROM ALL THROUGHOUT THE CITY, THEIR PRIORITY WHEN SOMEONE IS SHOT IN THEIR LINE OF DUTY, ESPECIALLY AN OFFICER IS TO GET TO THE SCENE AND PROVIDE ASSISTANCE AND GET WHOEVER IS SHOOTING AT THEM IN CUSTODY. THAT HAS NOT BEEN THE CASE. THERE HAVE BEEN THREE ROUNDS — >>GO AHEAD. >>I’M SORRY TO INTERRUPT YOU, VERY QUICKLY, CAN YOU TELL FROM YOUR VANTAGE POINT, IS THAT CORNER ROW HOME THESE OFFICERS ARE CENTERING ON OR NOT? THE OFFICERS WE ARE LOOKING AT RIGHT NOW ARE BASICALLY STANDING AND WAITING FOR SOMETHING TO HAPPEN. I CAN’T TELL IF THEIR EYES ARE ON THAT CORNER ROW HOME, THAT BURGUNDY TYPE ROW HOME ON THE CORNER OR NOT. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU CAN TELL OR NOT FROM YOUR VANTAGE POINT. >>YES, SO FROM WHAT I CAN TELL FROM WHERE I’M STANDING, UNDERSTANDING MIDBLOCK ON NORTH 15th STREET BETWEEN LENOX STREET AND PACIFIC STREET, THAT IS MY EXACT LOCATION, I’M STANDING IN FRONT OF THE HOUSE 3636 NORTH 15th STREET. IT APPEARS THE OFFICERS ARE FOCUSED, I CANNOT TELL IF IT IS THIS BUILDING RIGHT HERE TO MY LEFT, THE BRICK HOLDING ON THE CORNER, WHICH WOULD BE ON 15th STREET AT THE CORNER OF ERIE OR THEY ARE FOCUSED ACROSS THE STREET ON THAT MAROON OR BURGUNDY BUILDING YOU MENTIONED. YOU CAN SEE THE OFFICERS HERE ARE GATHERED, S.W.A.T. MEMBERS, PLAINCLOTHES, UNMARKED UNDERCOVER OFFICERS ALL GATHERING HERE AT THE CORNER OF THIS BUILDING. FROM MY VANTAGE POINT TO BE DIRECT WITH YOU, I CAN’T TELL EXACTLY WHAT BUILDING WAS BREACHED AT LEAST FROM WHERE I’M STANDING RIGHT HERE. >>THE BOTTOM LINE, THEY ARE IN THERE, WHEREVER IT IS, THEY ARE IN THERE. >>WE UNDERSTAND, WE ARE BEING TOLD BECAUSE THIS IS A FLUID AND VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION, NOT TO GIVE EXACT ADDRESS AT THIS POINT BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY IF THEY ARE STILL TAKING ON GUNFIRE, THIS IS A VOLATILE AND VIOLENT SITUATION, WE WANT TO BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT THAT. IT IS SOMETHING HAPPEN ALONG ERIE AVENUE, WE CAN SEE THE INCREDIBLE POLICE PRESENCE ALONGSIDE THAT ONE BUILDING. AND WE CAN UNDERSTAND WHY THEY ARE KEEPING YOU AS FAR AWAY AS THEY ARE IN MAKING SURE OTHER RESIDENTS ARE NOT CAUGHT UP IN THE MIDST OF ALL OF THIS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. SO, AGAIN, I CAN HEAR THE ADRENALINE IN YOUR VOICE, I KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE ON THE SCENE, MAYBE NOT ONE THIS DANGEROUS AT THIS POINT BUT I CERTAINLY UNDERSTAND AND TOTALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU’RE GOING THROUGH AT THIS POINT IN TERMS OF TRYING TO GET US THE INFORMATION AND STAY SAFE AS WELL. >>Reporter: ABSOLUTELY. THE KEY IS TO REMAIN SAFE. OF COURSE, IF WE SPIN AROUND REAL QUICK, I WANT TO SHOW MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY WHO HAVE GATHERED. WE ARE MIDBLOCK DOWN NORTH 15th STREET, THIS IS NEAR THE AREA WHERE THIS SUSPECT OR THE PEOPLE WHO COMMITTED, POSSIBLY COMMITTED THESE CRIMES ARE BASICALLY STILL HOLED UP. WE ARE WAITING TO SEE IF ANYONE COMES OUT IN CUSTODY, WE ARE NOT SURE. WE ARE NOT SURE WHO IS INSIDE, IF THERE ARE ANY OTHER INJURIES INSIDE, ANYONE IN THAT FACILITY OR HOME THAT IS INJURED. RIGHT NOW, THIS IS THE CENTER OF ATTENTION FOR THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT, THE S.W.A.T. TEAM AND ALL OF THE OTHER AGENCIES THAT HAVE RESPONDED TO THIS CALL AROUND 4:30 THIS AFTERNOON, TRACKING IT NEAR 6:00. >>THANK YOU SO MUCH. STANDBY, WE WILL GET BACK TO YOU. . >>>SIX OFFICERS INVOLVED IN THIS. IT STARTED AROUND 4:30 P.M. ON A NARCOTICS CALL. 3700 BLOCK OF NORTH 15th STREET. CHOPPER 3 IS ABOVE THE SCENE SINCE IT HAPPENED. WE SAW EARLY ON ONE SUSPECT WHO WAS TAKEN INTO CUSTODY, WHO APPEARED TO BE RESISTING ARREST AT THAT POINT. HE HAD TO BE LIFTED INTO THE POLICE CAR AND WAS TAKEN AWAY FROM THE SCENE BEFORE 5:00 P.M. OR SO. WE HAVE CONTINUED TO HEAR GREG SAY HE CAN HEAR, ABOUT A BLOCK AWAY, HE HEARD GUNFIRE AND FROM THE VERY BEGINNING WE WERE HEARING THAT OFFICERS WERE TAKING FIRE FROM THE VERY BEGINNING. SO THIS IS REALLY NOT DE- ESCALATED IT APPEARS BUT SO MUCH EVEN AFTER AN HOUR AND A HALF OF THIS SCENE UNFOLDING THERE. SIX OFFICERS WERE SHOT WE UNDERSTAND. >>AND WE GOT THAT FROM JOHN — >>EXACTLY. SIX OFFICERS WERE SHOT. NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES. THANK GOODNESS. BUT AGAIN WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW IS THAT THIS IS STILL A VERY ACTIVE AND DANGEROUS SCENE, NOT JUST FOR THE POLICE OFFICERS BUT THE RESIDENTS IN THE COMMUNITY WHICH ARE PRETTY MUCH HOLD UP IN THEIR HOMES AT THIS POINT OR TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT’S HAPPENING. AND THEY ARE TELLING PEOPLE TO STAY AWAY FROM THE AREA. THIS IS NOT AN AREA YOU WANT TO GO NEAR AT THIS POINT. >>ESPECIALLY BECAUSE WE JUST GOT A TWEET, THE POLICE ARE TWEETING THE SUSPECT IS STILL FIRING. I DON’T KNOW IF GREG CAN HEAR THAT OR NOT. THE SUSPECT IS STILL FIRING HIS GUN. SO THEY ARE STANDING BY AND THEY ARE WATCHING, HOPEFULLY HE WILL RUN OUT OF AMMUNITION, HOPEFULLY HE DOES NOT HIT ANYONE. THIS IS VERY ACTIVE. >>POLICE ON A DEFENSIVE POSE THERE. MANY CROUCHING BEHIND CARS, TRYING TO KEEP OUT OF THE WAY OF GUNFIRE AT THIS POINT. MANY RESIDENTS WERE TRYING TO GET AN IDEA AS TO WHAT WERE HAPPY BUT POLICE KEEPING THEM AT BAY. NO ONE ELSE WANTS TO BE INJURED IN THIS CASE. NO ONE ELSE THEY ARE HOPING BILL BE INJURED IN THIS SITUATION. SIX POLICE OFFICERS INJURED AT 4:30 P.M. THIS AFTERNOON RESPONDING TO A NARCOTICS CALL IN THE TIOGA SECTION OF PHILADELPHIA. >>KIM DAVIS IS AT THE HOSPITAL, TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL AND THE COMMISSIONER WILL BE MAKING A STATEMENT SOON ONCE HE FINDS OUT MORE ABOUT THE SITUATION BECAUSE IT IS STILL ACTIVE AND HE IS GETTING INFORMATION AS WE ARE GETTING INFORMATION. IT MIGHT BE TIME BEFORE HE STEPS TO THE MIC, IF AT ALL. >>WE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE POLICE OFFICERS WHO WERE SHOT AND INJURED AT THIS POINT. WE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THIS NEIGHBORHOOD AND THE FOLKS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD WHO ARE STILL, AGAIN, BEING HOLD UP AT THIS POINT WHILE POLICE TRY TO DE- ESCALATE THE SITUATION WHILE THEY TRY GET THE SUSPECT OR SUSPECTS IN CUSTODY. ONE PERSON HAS ALREADY BEEN TAKEN INTO CUSTODY. THEY ARE STILL ENGAGING ANOTHER PERSON OR PEOPLE AT THIS POINT. YOU STILL SEE AN INCREDIBLE POLICE PRESENCE AT THIS POINT IN THAT AREA. >>LOOKING AT THE PICTURE, I UNDERSTAND WE MAY BE USING A LONG LENS, I UNDERSTAND CHOPPER 3 HAS BEEN TOLD TO BACK UP AS TO NOT COMPROMISE THE SITUATION. SO THAT IS THE SITUATION THERE. THAT IS WHY YOU ARE LOOKING AT THIS PICTURE. MIGHT SEE SOFT OR CLOUDY. YOU CAN SEE THE LIGHTS, THE SIRENS. YOU CAN SEE THAT IN FRONT AND NO ONE IS MOVING BECAUSE THIS IS AN ONGOING SITUATION. >>HAVEN’T SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS IN A LONG TIME WHERE WE ARE SEEING THIS KIND OF VIOLENCE IN A CITY NEIGHBORHOOD. POLICE OFFICERS SHOT. THE SITUATION NOT UNDER CONTROL AT THIS POINT. THAT IS WHY THIS IS STILL A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION. AN HOUR AND A HALF AN THE INITIAL CALL CAME IN. >>NARCOTICS CALL THAT WENT VERY, VERY BADLY. AND WE ARE WATCHING THE RESULT OF IT IT RIGHT NOW. HAPPENED WHEN PEOPLE WERE GETTING OFF WORK, PEOPLE WERE MOVING AROUND IN THE TEMPLE AREA, FROM SCHOOL. A VERY ACTIVE TIME OF THE EVENING AND EVEN MORE SO AS GREG MENTIONED, ALL BROKE LOOSE AROUND 4:30 P.M. LET’S CHECK IN WITH GREG NEAR THE SCENE. >>Reporter: WE ARE CLOSE TO THE SCENE. A VERY ACTIVE SCENE HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. IN FACT, THIS IS WHERE THE POLICE HAVE GATHERED HERE NEAR THIS CORNER AND ABOUT DOWN A BLOCK FROM WHERE I AM STANDING, THERE IS THE PHILADELPHIA S.W.A.T. TEAM. AND WE HAVE HEARD ACTIVE GUNFIRE WITHIN THE PAST 20 MINUTES HAPPENING HERE NEAR THIS SCENE. RIGHT NOW TWO SHOTS WERE JUST ú YOU CAN HEAR POSSIBLY THE FOLKS — THE MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY, THE NEIGHBORHOOD REACTING AS WELL. THERE IS ACTIVE GUNFIRE HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. WE ARE GOING TO JUST KEEP THE LIVE PICTURE. YOU ARE LOOKING THAT S.W.A.T. TEAM. WE ARE NOT GOING TO GIVE OUR LOCATION. BUT AS YOU CAN TELL WE ARE CLOSE TO THE SCENE. PHILADELPHIA SWAT AND LARGE POLICE PRESENCE HERE ENGAGING THE SUSPECT AS WE SPEAK. IT APPEARS THEY ARE IN FRONT OF A HOME IN THE TIOGA SECTION OF PHILADELPHIA. THIS ALL UNFOLDING AT 4:35 P.M. THIS AFTERNOON. SINCE I HAVE BEEN LIVE THIS AFTERNOON, WE HAVE HEARD NOW THIS IS THE FOURTH BACK AND FORTH, THE FOURTH VOLLEY OF GUNFIRE BETWEEN PHILADELPHIA POLICE AND AT LEAST ONE SUSPECT WE HAVE CONFIRMED. SIX POLICE OFFICERS HAVE BEEN SHOT. THE POLICE TELLING US FORTUNATELY NONE OF THE INJURIES ARE LIFE THREATENING. THAT COULD CHANGE AS ACTIVE GUNFIRE IS TAKING PLACE RIGHT NOW IN THE TIOGA SECTION OF PHILADELPHIA. I BELIEVE YOU ARE LOOKING THAT S.W.A.T. VEHICLE RIGHT NOW. AND WE ARE JUST SHOWING THE SCENE AS IT IS UNFOLDING. HECTIC. I DON’T KNOW HOW ELSE TO DESCRIBE IT. A SCARY SITUATION. A HECTIC ONE. ONE WHERE MULTIPLE OFFICERS ARE THINKING ABOUT THEIR BROTHERS AND SISTERS WHO HAVE BEEN INJURED TODAY AND THEY ARE TRYING TO NEUTRALIZE AND ARREST THE SUSPECT WHICH IS THIS PERSON, PEOPLE, WREAKING HAVOC ON THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA, NORTH PHILADELPHIA RIGHT NOW. I AM IN A COMMUNITY, AT LEAST TWO OR THREE DOZEN PEOPLE GATHERED, PEOPLE ARE STAYING BACK OF COURSE. WE WILL GIVE YOU THE SITUATION AS IT IS UNFOLDING. WE DON’T KNOW IF ANYONE WHO IS COMMITTING THESE CRIMES IS WATCHING OUR BROADCAST SO WE ARE NOT GOING TO BE SHOWING SPECIFIC LOCATIONS OR TALKING ABOUT THEM BUT WE ARE IN THE TIOGA SECTION OF PHILADELPHIA. THIS IS WHERE THOSE EMERGENCY CALLS BEGAN BROADCASTING OVER POLICE RADIO AT 4:35 P.M. PHILADELPHIA S.W.A.T. IN FULL GEAR WITH THEIR TACTICAL EQUIPMENT ENGAGING THE SYSTEM. A VERY TENSE SITUATION. ONE THAT I HAVE BEEN IN. I HAVE BEEN IN PLENTY OF SHOOTINGS BUT NOTHING THIS SERIOUS WHERE THERE IS ACTIVE GUNFIRE. IMAGINE THIS BEING YOUR BLOCK HERE IN THE TIOGA SECTION OF PHILADELPHIA WHEN THERE IS SUCH A — THERE IS A GUN BATTLE IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA AS WE ARE SPEAKING. I HEARD IT. IT IS ONGOING — GO AHEAD. >>IT IS ONGOING. ACTIVE GUNFIRE. I WANT TO REITTRITE YOU, THEY HAVE PROTECTIVE GEAR ON. THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, THE S.W.A.T. TEAM, WE HAVE SEEN THE HELMETS, THEY HAVE PROTECTIVE GEAR ON. STRAY BULLETS CAN FLY SO KEEP YOURSELF SAFE. THE VIDEO, FAMILY MEMBERS — YOU ARE LOOKING AT LIVE PICTURE, FAMILY MEMBERS ARE STARTING TO COME TO THE HOSPITAL NOW BUT ONCE AGAIN, AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, WE WILL STAY ON TOP OF THAT AS WELL. ONCE AGAIN THE INJURIES, THE INJURIES THAT WE HAVE HEARD ABOUT, OFFICERS BEING SHOT AND THE ONE INJURED, THEY ARE NOT LIFE THREATENING AT THE MOMENT. WE ARE GETTING SIX OFFICERS. >>SIX OFFICERS SHOT. NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES FOR ALL OF THEM, WHICH IS THE GOOD NEWS THERE. WE ARE SEEING THAT THOUGHT FROM TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL. MEMBERS CHECKING ON FAMILY MEMBERS THERE. THREE OFFICERS TAKEN TO TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL. THE SCENE IS STILL PLAYING OUT. A VERY FLUID AND DANGEROUS SITUATION. A GUN BATTLE IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA PLAYING OUT THERE. S.W.A.T. TEAM MEMBERS HAVE THEIR GUNS TRAINED ON A HOUSE THERE NEAR THE ERIE AVENUE WHERE THIS INITIALLY UNFOLDED. THE 3700 BLOCK OF 15th STREET AT 4:30 P.M. THIS AFTERNOON. VERY MUCH ACTIVITY THERE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE THIS ALL HAPPENED. THIS IS THE ACTIVITY WE ARE SEEING TO THE RIGHT OF THE SCREEN AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL. >>HE CONTINUES TO GET INFORMATION THAT HE IS PUTTING OUT ON TWITTER, TALKING TO HIS CO-WORKERS, GIVING US THE INFORMATION. HE TOLD US THERE ARE SIX OFFICERS NOW. HE IS ON TOP OF THE SITUATION NOW TAKING CARE OF AND LOOKING AFTER THE MEN AND WOMEN OF THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. >>AND WE ARE HEARING WE SAW WHAT LOOKED TO BE SEVERAL FAMILY MEMBERS RUNNING INTO THE HOSPITAL. THESE ARE NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES BUT WE DON’T KNOW WHAT TYPE OF INJURIES THEY SUSTAINED AT THIS POINT. AND FAMILY MEMBERS WILL CHECK ON THEIR LOVED ONE. >>RIGHT. THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR LOVED ONES AS ARE WE. THIS IS SOMETHING TO SEE. YOU ARE LOOKING LIVE, IT IS 6:10 P.M. WE HAVE BEEN COVERING THE SHOOT OUT IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA THAT STARTED WITH A NARCOTICS CALL AROUND 4:30 P.M. THIS AFTERNOON IN THE NORTH PHILADELPHIA AREA IN TIOGA. GUNSHOTS. A MASSIVE POLICE PRESENCE. IT WAS DESCRIBED AS A BOILOVER, CHAOS IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA. YOU ARE LOOKING AT END THE RESULT, NOT THE END, THE RESULT OF AN HOUR AND A HALF AGO AND THE OFFICERS ARE WAITING AS A S.W.A.T. TEAM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BLOCK IN FRONT OF THEM IS TRYING TO WAIT THIS SITUATION OUT. >>YEAH. AND AGAIN, EXCHANGES OF GUNFIRE HEARD THERE. GREG HEARING IT FOR HIMSELF. HE IS TRYING TO STAY AS FAR BACK AS POSSIBLE AND POLICE ARE TRYING TO PROTECT THEMSELVES AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS. YOU CAN’T SEE HERE BUT IF YOU LOOK PAST THAT HOUSE TO THE LEFT YOU CAN SEE S.W.A.T. TEAM MEMBERS THAT PRETTY MUCH HAVE THEIR MILITARY TYPE GEAR RIGHT THERE IN THE MIDDLE OF úT GUNS TRAINED ONWHAT APPEARS TO BE A HOUSE THERE IN THAT AREA. JUST A BLOCK AWAY FROM WHERE ALL THIS ACTIVITY TRANSPIRED ABOUT 4:30 P.M. THIS AFTERNOON. THE DRUG ACTIVITY CALL THAT SET THIS ALL IN MOTION EARLIER THIS AFTERNOON AT 4:30 P.M. WHERE THE OFFICERS WERE SHOT AT THAT SCENE. >>THIS IS GROUND ZERO RIGHT NOW. AND WE WILL STAY HERE NOTHING SOMETHING IS RESOLVED OR WE HEAR FROM THE COMMISSIONER OR THE MAYOR. OUR HELICOPTERS, CHOPPER 3 IS IN THE AIR AND HAS BEEN MOVED BACK BUT WE CAN STILL SEE ANY ACTIVITY THAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT LIVE, LIVE RIGHT NOW AT 6:11 P.M. IN THE EVENING. A VERY ACTIVE TIME AROUND THE CITY. AROUND THE AREA. AROUND THE AREA. PEOPLE GETTING OFF WORK, PEOPLE LEAVING SCHOOL, BUT THIS AREA IS GRID LOCK IN PHILADELPHIA RIGHT NOW BECAUSE NO ONE IS GETTING IN, NO ONE IS GETTING OUT. JOE HAS BEEN OUT ON THE SCENE SINCE THIS STARTED. YOU HAVE MORE INFORMATION FOR US? >>Reporter: I DO. GOOD EVENING. TALKING ABOUT WHAT IS NEXT, THE MOST IMPORTANT ELEMENT OF ALL OF THIS IS CONCLUDING WHAT HAS NOW BEEN GOING ON FOR ALMOST ONE HOUR AND 45 MINUTES. POLICE CONFIRMING THE GUN BATTLE STILL PERSISTS AS YOU HEARD. THE VOLLEY OF GUNFIRE FROM POLICE AND THE SHOOTER. THAT IS STILL UNFOLDING. ONE PERSON WAS TAKEN INTO CUSTODY. THE SECOND PERSON GOING TO BE TAKEN INTO CUSTODY OR OTHERWISE ACCORDING TO POLICE SOURCES. THE INFORMATION I AM GETTING ABOUT THE LOGISTICS THAT I MENTIONED, RIGHT NOW WE ARE AWARE THE POLICE COMMISSIONER, THE MAYOR, AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM RIGHT NOW AND OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS HUDDLING RIGHT NOW, MEETING WITH THE WOUNDED. AGAIN, WE HAVE BEEN REPORTED THEIR INJURIES ALL NON-LIFE- THREATENING INJURY. OF THE FIVE HOT AND ONE INVOLVED IN A COLLISION OF SOME SORT ON THE WAY TO THE SHOOTING. THE JURIES AND WOUNDS NON-LIFE- THREATENING INJURY. WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN FROM HERE ON OUT IS THEY ARE GETTING THEIR NOTES TOGETHER, COMPARING INFORMATION ASK MAKING SURE THAT BEFORE THEY STEP BEFORE THE CAMERAS THEY HAVE THE FRESHEST AND MOST ACCURATE INFORMATION TO PASS ALONG TO ALL OF US. WE MENTIONED THE CHOPPER PULLING BACK. THAT WAS AT THE REQUEST OF PHILADELPHIA POLICE SO THAT WE DO NOT GIVE ANY AUPERHAND OR DIVULGE LOCATION OR PRESENCE TO THOSE ON THE OPPOSITE END OF THIS INVESTIGATION. POLICE DO NOT WANT US DETAILING INFORMATION ABOUT LOCATIONS FOR OFFICER SAFETY AND WE ARE HONORING THAT. AGAIN, AWAITING A NEWS CONFERENCE THAT COULD HAPPEN AT ANY MINUTE. THESE USUALLY UNFOLD QUICKLY. IT USUALLY FEATURES THE POLICE COMMISSIONER, THE MAYOR, THE FOP AND OTHER HIGH RANKING BRAS OF THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT. WE CANNOT UNDEREMPHASIZE THE SERIOUSNESS OF THIS AFTERNOON AND WHAT DID UNFOLD AT THAT INTERSECTION THERE IN THAT SECTION OF THE CITY WHERE SO MANY PEOPLE COULD HAVE BEEN IN HARM’S WAY. SIX PHILADELPHIA POLICE OFFICERS WERE INJURED TO A DEGREE. NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURY BUT LET ALONE THE FACT THAT THIS HAPPENED TO BEGIN WITH AND MY POLICE SOURCES SAYING IT WAS CHAOS. A WE USED THE WORDS BOILOVER AND THAT IS WHAT THE SITUATION IS LIKE. WHEN THE OFFICIALS WERE TRYING TO GET INTO THE AREA THEY DESCRIBED FRUSTRATION AND MORE CHAOS TRYING TO REACH IN TO THAT ZONE, THIS AREA THEY SET UP, THIS PERIMETER AND ANOTHER LOCATION THEY TRACKED WHAT IS THEY BELIEVE A SECOND GUNMAN IN ALL OF THIS. I AM FEELING MY PHONE GO OFF WITH MESSAGES AND INFORMATION FROM SOURCES. IT LOOKS LIKE THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT HAS CONFIRMED AN INITIAL INCIDENT WAS FOR A WARRANT SERVICE AT THAT LOCATION. A WARRANT SERVICE THERE AND AGAIN OUR SOURCES SAYING THIS WAS A WARRANT SERVICE INITIATED BY THE NARCOTICS UNIT OF THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT. THAT IS THE LATEST FROM WHAT WE HAVE HERE AT THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE CENTER. BACK TO YOU. >>ONCE AGAIN, THANK YOU. YOU SAID THE OFFICIALS ARE MEETING WITH THE WOUNDED AND THEIR FAMILIES? >>Reporter: THAT IS OUR UNDERSTANDING. THE POLICE COMMISSIONER, AN HOUR AND A HALF AGO WAS ON HIS WAY TO TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM. I SPOKE TO THE MAYOR’S OFFICE WITHIN THE LAST 45 MINUTES, THEY SAID THE MAYOR HAD BEEN BRIEFED AND HE TOO IS MAKING HIS WAY TO TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL. >>LEARNING MORE NOW IN LIGHT OF YOUR SOURCES THERE. THIS WAS THE POLICE DEPARTMENT CONFIRMING A WARRANT SERVICE NISHED BY THE NARCOTICS UNIT AT 4:30 P.M. THIS AFTERNOON IN THE 3700 BLOCK OF NORTH 15th STREET. THAT SPARKED ALL THIS VIOLENCE WE HAVE SEEN TODAY WITH SIX POLICE OFFICERS SHOT, WE UNDERSTAND. ALL OF THEM NON-LIFE- THREATENING INJURIES. ONE COULD HAVE BEEN INJURED IN A CAR ACCIDENT TRYING TO GET TO THERE SCENE. WE ARE AWAITING THERE NEWS CONFERENCE WHERE WE WILL GET MORE INFORMATION. THE COMMISSIONER, THE MAYOR, THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY, ALL OF THEM EXPECTED TO BE A PART OF THIS PRESS CONFERENCE SHORTLY. WE IMAGINE THEY ARE AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL WHERE THE OFFICERS WERE RUSHED TO BECAUSE THAT IS THE CLOSEST HOSPITAL TO THE SCENE. >>YOU CAN SEE THE SHOT THERE ON YOUR LEFT OF THE SITUATION AT THE TRAUMA CENTER AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL AND YOU CAN SEE MANY OF THE POLICE OFFICERS WAITING TO FIND OUT, OUR MEN AND WOMEN IN BLUE AND WHITE WAITING TO FIND OUT HOW THEY ARE DOING AT THIS MOMENT AND THIS IS A VERY TENSE SITUATION FOR THEM BECAUSE THIS IS FAMILY. THIS IS FAMILY. >>THIS IS STILL A SCENE THAT IS VERY MUCH NOT UNDER CONTROL AT THIS POINT. >>NOT AT ALL. >>THAT SCENE IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA IN TIOGA, A GUN BATTLE PLAYING OUT. AN HOUR AND 45 MINUTES AFTER THE OFFICIAL REPORT OF POLICE OFFICERS SHOT. THEY ARE TRYING TO APPREHEND IT SUSPECT OR SUSPECTS WHO IS HOLD UP IN A HOUSE THERE NEAR THE SCENE WHERE IT STARTED, NEAR ERIE AVENUE. YOU SAW SOME OF THE OFFICERS THERE WHO WERE STILL IN A DEFENSIVE POSE. EVEN NOW AT THAT LOCATION. WE SAW S.W.A.T. TEAM MEMBERS WH ARE SITTING THERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET WITH GUNS DRAWN AND TRAINED ON A HOUSE THERE AS THEY ARE STILL TAKING FIRE AND TRYING TO PROTECT THEMSELVES AS WELL AS THE RESIDENTS IN THE COMMUNITY WHO ARE HOLD UP INSIDE THEIR HOMES. >>THEY TRAIN FOR IT AND NOW WE ARE SEEING IT LIVE AS THEY ARE USING WHAT THEY HAVE LEARNED. THIS IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT FOR THEM, ESPECIALLY WHETHER IT COMES TO THE ONES THAT THEY LOVE AND THEIR FAMILIES. THE ONES WHO PROTECT AND SERVE OUR GREAT CITY. THE MEDICS, THE EMTS, THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, TEMPLE POLICE, THE SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT IS THERE AS WELL IN IT TIOGA SECTION OF THE CITY. GREG IS CLOSE TO THE SCENE. HE HAS BEEN FOLLOWING THIS. HE HAS SHOWN US THE S.W.A.T. TEAM, THEY ARE READY TO STRIKE. IF THEY HAVEN’T STRUCK ALREADY. THE COMMUNITY IS BEHIND CAUTION TAPE. THEY CANNOT GET CLOSER. GREG SAID THE PEOPLE IN THE HOMES AROUND WHERE THE SUSPECT OR SUSPECTS IS THEY ARE SHELTERED IN PLACE WAITING FOR THIS TO END. >>WE SAW A DOZEN POLICE OFFICERS WHO WERE ON A RESIDENT’S PORCH THERE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD AS THEY WERE TRYING TO TAKE COVER AND TRYING TO PROTECT THEMSELVES. THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION PLAYING OUT HERE IN PHILADELPHIA IN THAT TIOGA NEIGHBORHOOD. SCORES OF POLICE OFFICERS AS WE SAID. ONCE YOU HEAR ABOUT A POLICE OFFICER DOWN, POLICE OFFICER SHOT AND SIX IN THIS CASE, POLICE OFFICERS FROM ALL OVER THE CITY, THEY DROP EVERYTHING TO RUSH TO THE SCENE. THE SITUATION VERY DANGEROUS, VERY ACTIVE AND STILL, YOU KNOW, A VERY SERIOUS SITUATION. >>ACTIVE IS THE KEYWORD. I JUST GOT WORD THAT JUST A MINUTE AGO THE POLICE TWEETED THE SUSPECT STILL FIRING. WHICH MAKES YOU BELIEVE WHAT — WHAT TYPE OF WEAPON DOES HE HAVE BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN FIRING FOR ALMOST TWO HOURS OFF AND ON NOW. JUST GOT TWEET A MINUTE AGO THE SUSPECT IS STILL FIRING. THIS IS FAR FROM BEING OVER. YOU CAN SEE THERE IS NO MOVEMENT ON THE SCREEN THE RIGHT. ON THE VIDEO TO THE RIGHT. THEY KNOW WHERE THEY ARE GOING. THEY KNOW WHO THEY ARE AFTER. NOW IT IS A WAITING GAME. WE ARE ALSO HEARING FROM PHILADELPHIA POLICE THERE ARE SEVERAL OTHER OFFICERS WHO ARE BEING TREATED FOR NON-GUNSHOT INJURY. WE ARE NOT SURE HOW THEY MAY HAVE BEEN INJURED BUT WE HAVE SEEN THE FLURRY OF ACTIVITY THERE AT THE SCENE. WE HAVE SEEN OFFICERS RUNNING. WE HAVE SEEN THEM TRYING TO GET TO A SCENE, TRYING TO GET TO THE SUSPECT. SO WE CAN ONLY IMAGINE JUST THE INTENSITY THAT IS PLAYING THROUGHOUT ON THAT STREET AND WITH ALL THESE OFFICERS WHO ARE JUST TRYING TO GET TO THIS SUSPECT TO STOP HIM FROM FIRING AT THIS POINT. THIS IS A CONTINUING GUN BATTLE THAT IS PLAYING OUT TWO HOURS AFTER THE INITIAL OFFICERS WERE SHOT AT THE SCENE. >>YOU MENTIONED RUNNING. WE SAW OFFICERS RUNNING AWAY FROM GREG TOWARD A CERTAIN SCENE AND THEN 20 SECOND LATER THEY WERE RUNNING BACK. A LOT IS GOING ON RIGHT NOW. THEY HAVE A PLAN. IT IS TACTICAL. THEY HAVE A PLAN. IN ORDER TO GET THIS PERSON OR PERSONS INTO CUSTODY. WE ARE STILL GETTING INFORMATION. >>WE ARE GETTING INFORMATION. THE CBS EVENING NEWS AT 7:00 P.M. ON THE CW PHILLY. THIS IS OUR PRIORITY HERE IN PHILADELPHIA TO STAY ON THIS SCENE, TO STAY WITH THIS SITUATION THAT IS STILL UNFOLDING AT THIS HOUR. CBS EVENING NEWS AT 7:00 P.M. AT 6:22 P.M. WE ARE IN PHILADELPHIA CONTINUING TO WATCH A GUN BATTLE PLAY OUT WITH PHILADELPHIA POLICE AFTER SIX OF THEIR OWN WERE SHOT. >>THE OFFICERS ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE SCREEN HAVE NOT MOVED. THEY ARE ALMOST IN THE SAME POSITION WHEN GREG WAS DOING HIS REPORT. THEY ARE STANDING BY. THEY ARE READY. THEY ARE RIGHT THERE THAT INTERSECTION NEAR ERIE AVENUE. THEY ARE WAITING. THEY ARE WAITING TO SEE WHAT’S HAPPENING. THEY TOO ARE WAITING TO GET INFORMATION TO GET THEIR NEXT ORDERS. RIGHT NOW THE ORDER IS TO SHELTER IN POLICE. THE SHOOTER OR SHOOTERS CONTINUE, CONTINUES TO FIRE. >>TWO DIFFERENT SCENES. THE ACTIVE SCENE WITH THE SUSPECT OR SUSPECTS THAT ARE HOLD UP AT THIS POINT AND POLICE TAKING ON FIRE AT THIS POINT. THE OTHER SCENE IS WHAT’S HAPPENING AT THE HOSPITAL. TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL TRAUMA CENTER VERY ACTIVE THERE. FAMILY MEMBERS RUSH INTO THE HOSPITAL TO CLECK ON THEIR LOVED ONES AT THIS POINTS. AGAIN, ACCORDING TO THE FOP AND PHILADELPHIA POLICE, NONE OF THE INJURIES, NONE OF THE GUNSHOT INJURIES ARE LIFE THREATENING. THESE ARE LOVED ONES WHO HAVE BEEN INJURED SO WE HAVE SEEN LOTS OF FAMILY RUSHING INTO THE HOSPITAL. WE ARE AWAITING A PRESS CONFERENCE FROM POLICE COMMISSIONER, WE UNDERSTAND THE MAYOR WILL BE THERE AS WELL, WE UNDERSTAND THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY IS AT THE HOSPITAL AS WELL. AS WELL AS A LARGE POLICE PRESENCE THERE SUPPORTING THE MEN AND WOMEN IN BLUE THAT HAVE BEEN INJURED. >>GREG IS ON SCENE NEAR GROUND ZERO. LET’S CHECK IN WITH GREG RIGHT NOW. >>Reporter: I CAN TELL YOU IN THE PAST FEW MINUTES WE HEARD THE S.W.A.T. TEAM, WHICH IS ABOUT A BLOCK FROM WHERE I AM STANDING IN THE TIOGA SECTION OF NORTH PHILADELPHIA, ONE MORE GUNSHOT BEING FIRED. MULTIPLE SHOTS NOW BEING FIRED. THIRD SHOT JUST FIRED. THERE HAVE BEEN SOME TYPE OF NEGOTIATION. A FOURTH SHOT HAPPENING BETWEEN WHOEVER IS INSIDE THIS HOME AND THE S.W.A.T. TEAM. SHOTS ARE CONTINUING TO BE FIRED. I DON’T KNOW IF THEY ARE SHOT BY PHILADELPHIA S.W.A.T. MEMBERS OR IF THEY ARE BEING SHOT BY THE SUSPECT BUT THIS HAS BEEN A TENSE SITUATION TO PUT IT LIGHTLY OVER THE PAST HOUR PLUS NOW AS THE S.W.A.T. TEAM HAS ENGAGED WITH THE PERSON OR PEOPLE INSIDE A HOME HERE IN THE TIOGA SECTION OF NORTH PHILADELPHIA. SIX OFFICERS HAVE BEEN SHOT HERE THIS AFTERNOON STARTING AT 4:35 P.M. WHAT STARTED AS A WARRANT SERVICE CALL BY PHILADELPHIA POLICE, ENDED WITH SIX OFFICERS SHOT. MORE GUNSHOTS BEING FIRED AS WE ARE LIVE RIGHT NOW. THE S.W.A.T. TEAM IS ENGAGING WITH THE SUSPECT. THE GOAL AS YOU CAN IMAGINE AS SHOTS CONTINUE GET THIS PERSON IN CUSTODY. SHOTS ARE CONTINUING HERE IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA. A TENSE SITUATION. WE HAVE MULTIPLE OFFICERS IN THIS SECTION TAKING DEFENSIVE POSITIONS. I HEAR YELLING TAKING. I WILL PAUSE TO SEE IF WE CAN HEAR THE COMMANDS. WE ARE NOT GIVING OUR SPECIFIC LOCATION BECAUSE THIS IS ONGOING AND THE GOAL RIGHT NOW IMMEDIATE IS TO GET THE PERSON IN CUSTODY. AND THEN PROCESS THE SCENE, WHICH MUST BE A DIFFICULT ONE FOR OFFICERS TO DO CONSIDERING THAT SIX OF THEIR FELLOW OFFICERS HAVE BEEN INJURED WITH NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES THIS AFTERNOON. ALL BEGINNING AT 4:35 P.M. I HEAR YELLING IN THE BACKGROUND. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU CAN HEAR THAT AND THERE HAVE BEEN MULTIPLE SHOTS. WE ARE STAYING BACK. WE ARE STAYING SAFE. SOMETHING IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. THE SUSPECT AND THE POLICE ARE ENGAGING. TENSE SITUATION, YOU KNOW. POLICE KEEPING THIS COMMUNITY BACK FROM THE SCENE. THIS IS NORTH PHILADELPHIA. IT IS VERY DENSE HERE. RIGHT OFF OF BROAD STREET IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA. HERE COMES. THE S.W.A.T. TACTICAL VEHICLE ARRIVING RIGHT NOW. I DON’T KNOW IF MORE OFFICERS ARE GOING TO GET OUT AND ENGAGE WITH THE SUSPECT RIGHT NOW. BUT THIS IS A SECOND VEHICLE, A SECOND TACTICAL VEHICLE ARRIVING AT THE SCENE HERE. THIS IS NORTH PHILADELPHIA SECTION, THE TIOGA SECTION OF PHILADELPHIA. I SEE ONE TACTICAL VEHICLE WITH GUNS DRAWN, APPEAR TO BE RIFLES POINTED AT A HOME HERE. THAT APPEARS TO BE WHERE THE SUSPECT IS ENGAGING WITH OFFICERS AS WE SPEAK. I AM TALK AGCAOTIC SCENE WITH POLICE — THIS IS WHAT THEY DO, THIS IS WHAT THEY PREPARE FOR. UNFORTUNATELY WITH THE TYPE OF WEAPONRY AND GUNS THAT PEOPLE HAVE ACCESS TO, POLICE HAVE TO RESPOND IN KIND AND WHOEVER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SHOTING SIX OFFICERS, OF COURSE, THE S.W.A.T. TEAM IS GOING TO GET INVOLVED. OVER THE COURSE OF THE AFTERNOON, A VERY TENSE AND SCARY SITUATION. POLICE HAVE CONTINUED TO ENGAGE THE SUSPECT. WE DON’T KNOW IF ANYONE ELSE IS IN THE HOUSE WITH HIM. WE KNOW IT IS A MALE SUSPECT INSIDE. POLICE WERE TRYING TO SERVE A WARRANT. SOUNDS LIKE GUNFIRE, SOUNDS LIKE A LITTLE BIT FURTHER DOWN. OFFICERS ARE MOVING THEIR POSITIONS HERE. YOU SEE SOME OFFICERS RUNNING ACROSS THE STREET. OUR PHOTO JOURNALIST WILL KEEP OUR SHOT UP. WE ARE NOT GOING TO GIVE YOU SPECIFIC DETAILS AS TO WHERE THIS IS IN CASE WHOEVER IS INVOLVED IN THIS HAPPENS TO BE WATCHING OUR BROADCAST. BUT OVER THE PAST HOUR NOW CONTINUED GUNFIRE. CONTINUED BETWEEN POLICE, THE PHILADELPHIA S.W.A.T. TEAM AND THE SUSPECT OR SUSPECTS INSIDE THE HOME HERE IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA. I AM TOLD THEY ARE OPENING A POLICE VAN RIGHT NOW. I AM NOT SURE IF THEY HAVE SOMEONE IN CUSTODY BUT OFFICERS RIGHT HERE WITH SHOTGUNS, IT APPEARS TO BE, MAYBE LOADING SOMEONE IN TO A POLICE VEHICLE RIGHT NOW. >>WHEN YOU HEARD THE SHOTS, DO YOU KNOW IF THEY WERE COMING FROM THAT S.W.A.T. TEAM THAT WE ARE LOOKING AT RIGHT NOW OR WAS IT TOO DIFFICULT TO TELL BECAUSE THE ONE PLEB OF MEMBER OF THE S.W.A.T. TEAM HASN’T MOVED AWAY FROM HIS WEAPON POINTED AT THAT HOUSE. COULD YOU HEAR WHERE THE SHOTS WERE COMING FROM? >>Reporter: EXACTLY. THAT S.W.A.T. MEMBER ON TOP OF THAT TACTICAL VEHICLE HAS A RIFLE POINTED EXACTLY WHERE THE THREAT IS. I CANNOT TELL FROM THIS POSITION, WE ARE CLOSE BUT WE ARE NOT CLOSE ENOUGH TO TELL EXACTLY WHO HAS BEEN FIRING, WHETHER IT HAS BEEN POLICE, WHETHER IT HAS BEEN THE SUSPECT OR SUSPECTS OR BOTH. BUT WE HAVE HEARD GUNSHOTS AND WE CAN SEE OFFICERS HERE ARE GETTING INTO THEIR VEHICLES, PUTTING ON SOME GEAR. AND WE ARE NOT SURE IF THE SITUATION COMING TO A CLOSE. >>SO PHILADELPHIA POLICE ARE MOVING BACK — THE PHILADELPHIA COMMAND STAFF MOVING THE VEHICLES BACK AS A MATTER OF SOFT THEY ARE SAYING. SO WE ARE GOING TO — YOU KNOW, OF COURSE, JUST BE CAREFUL HERE AND BACK UP A LITTLE BIT. >>WE SEE THEY ARE MOVING — >>Reporter: AS WE — >>THEY ARE MOVING THE PERIMETER THERE. THEY ARE MOVING THE SCENE. MOVING YOU BACK TO MAKE SURE YOU STAY OUT OF THE WAY OF GUNFIRE. HAVE YOU HEARD, YOU SAID YOU HEARD YELLING AS WELL AS OTHER ROUNDS OF GUNFIRE A SHORT TIME AGO, DO YOU KNOW, IS THERE A POLICE NEGOTIATOR THERE ON THE SCENE TALKING TO THE SUSPECT OR SUSPECTS, IS THAT WHAT WE BELIEVE IS PLAYING OUT OR DO YOU HAVE IN SIGHT ON THAT? >>Reporter: WELL, I CAN TELL YOU IT APPEARS 10 MINUTES AGO THERE WAS SOMEONE YELLING COMMANDS I COULD NOT HEAR WHAT THE COMMANDS WERE BUT SOMEONE YELLING COMMANDS ON A LOUD SPEAKER. I WOULD ASSUME THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN A POLICE NEGOTIATOR TRYING TO COMMUNICATE WITH WHOEVER WAS INSIDE OF THIS VEHICLE. BUT AS YOU CAN SEE OFFICERS TRYING TO REMOVE SOME OF THE VEHICLES HERE FROM THIS LOCATION. CAN YOU GIVE US AN UPDATE, IS IT OVER? >>THIS IS AN ACTIVE LIVE SITUATION. MATTER OF PUBLIC SAFETY. I WOULD APPRECIATE IF YOU GOT ON THE SIDEWALK. >>Reporter: SURE THING. I WAS JUST TOLD THIS IS AN ACTIVE LIVE SITUATION AND THEY ARE ASKING US FOR OUR SAFETY TO BACK UP. WE WILL COMPLY WITH THE REQUESTS. THERE MIGHT BE CAMERA MOVEMENT AS THE POLICE MOVE BACK THE SCENE SLIGHTLY. SO THIS IS WHERE THE COMMUNITY HAS GATHERED. THIS IS WHERE THE MEDIA HAS GATHERED. THIS IS AN ACTIVE LIVE SITUATION. STILL ONGOING. YOU CAN SEE RIGHT HERE — WE WILL MOVE THE CAMERA BRIEFLY HERE. APOLOGIZE FOR THE MOVEMENT. YOU CAN SEE WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW. OFFICERS ARE MOVING SOME OF THE VEHICLES AND TRYING TO KEEP US AND THE PUBLIC IN SAFE SITUATIONS. I HAVE NOT HEARD GUNFIRE IN THE PAST 10 MINUTES OR SO. BUT YOU CAN SEE MULTIPLE VEHICLES MOVING — BEING MOVED BACK HERE. OFFICERS MOVING THEIR LOCATIONS. OFFICERS MOVING BACK THEIR VEHICLES. THIS IS AN ACTIVE LIVE SITUATION. FROM MY INTERPRETATION OF THIS IT MIGHT BE COMING TO A CLOSE. THE REASON I SAY THAT IS THE OFFICERS WHO WERE IN DEFENSIVE POSITIONS ARE NO LONGER IN THOSE POSITIONS. I SEE A WHITE VAN. IF YOU COULD SHOW THAT, THE DOOR IS OPEN. I DON’T KNOW IF THEY WILL LOAD THE SUSPECT. WE HAVE NOT HEARD ANY COMMANDS FROM S.W.A.T. MEMBERS OF THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT IN THE PAST FEW MINUTES. WE HAVE NOT HEARD GUNFIRE WHICH I CAN TELL YOU IS A RELIEF. AND OFFICERS ARE MOVING THEIR VEHICLES FROM THIS SCENE WHICH APPEARS TO BE — MEAN IT IS SAFE TO MOVE THE VEHICLES. IF THERE WAS ACTIVE FIRE OFFICERS WOULD NOT BE DOING THIS. SO THIS MIGHT BE, THROUGH MY INTERPRETATION, THIS IS A FLUID SITUATION. IT MIGHT BE COMING TO AN END. MY COLLEAGUE JOE HAS BEEN USING HIS RESOURCES AND SOURCES WITHIN THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT AT THE CONTRIBUTORY NEGLIGENCE CENTER TO GATHER AS MUCH AS HE CAN. I WANT TO BRING JOE IN LIVE NOW WITH WHAT HE LEARNED. IT APPEARS IT MAY BE WRAPPING UP. WHAT HAVE YOU HEARD? >>Reporter: LET’S KEEP THIS FLUID AND JUMP IN WHEN YOU HAVE TO BECAUSE YOU ARE WHERE EVERYTHING IS BREAKING RIGHT NOW. ACCORDING TO THE DEPARTMENT, THE COUNT IS SEVEN PHILADELPHIA — SIX FROM SUSTAINING GUNSHOTS AND THE SEVENTH ONE IS THE OFFICER INVOLVED IN RESPONDING AND SOMEHOW CAUGHT UP IN A CAR CRASH ON THE WAY TO THE SCENE. EMPHASIS IS ON THE FACT THAT ALL OF THESE WOUNDS HAVE BEEN DESCRIBED TO ME TO BE MINOR AND NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURY. LET’S ALSO TALK ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON AT YOUR SCENE RIGHT NOW ACCORDING TO MY SOURCES IN THE COMMAND CENTER WHO ARE TRYING TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS AND UNDERSTAND BETTER HOW TO RESOLVE THIS SITUATION. RIGHT NOW POLICE ARE PREPARED TO USE WHATEVER TYPE OF VEHICLE AND/OR S.W.A.T. OR TACTICAL SORT OF VEHICLE TO TRY AND GET INTO THAT BUILDING, IF THEY HAVE TO. THAT DOESN’T MEAN THEY ARE GOING TO. WE CONFIRMED THROUGH SOURCES, THIS PERSON THAT POLICE ARE TRYING TO BRING INTO CUSTODY HAS AT TIMES APPARENTLY LIVE STREAMED PART OF WHAT IS GOING ON. PHILADELPHIA POLICE CONFIRM THE INDIVIDUAL WAS LIVE STREAMING HIS END OF THIS ORDEAL. WE ARE REALLY TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT SOCIAL MEDIA SERVICE THAT WAS HAPPENING ON AND MY SOURCE IN THE POLICE DEPARTMENT TELLS ME UP UNTIL 2 MINUTES AGO THEY WERE STILL WORKING ON TRYING TO SHUT THAT DOWN AND PUT AN END TO THE LIVE STREAM BROADCAST. AGAIN, 7 PHILADELPHIA POLICE OFFICERS WOUNDED OR INJURED. WOUNDED WHEN SOMEONE SUSTAINED A GUNSHOT WOUND AND WOUNDED WHEN THERE ARE OTHER INJURIES. A CAR CRASHED INVOLVED AND THE REMAINING SIX WERE SUSTAINED DURING THERE GUN BATTLE. THAT ACCORDING TO A SOURCE. CONTINUES AS I SPEAK. >>Reporter: JOE, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THAT INFORMATION. RIGHT HERE AS TO WHAT HAS GONE ON NEAR THE SHOOTING SCENE. THIS STREET RIGHT HERE IN THE NORTH PHILADELPHIA SECTION, THE TIOGA SECTION OF PHILADELPHIA WAS LINED WITH POLICE VEHICLES. THEY HAVE MOVED THE VEHICLES BACK. THERE WERE OFFICERS LINING ONE OF THE BUILDINGS HERE IN A TACTICAL DEFENSE POSITION, BUT WHAT HAS NOT CHANGED IS THE BLACK S.W.A.T. TACTICAL VEHICLE WITH THERE ARMED PHILADELPHIA S.W.A.T. MEMBER AND HIS RIFLE POINTED AT THE SUSPECT’S HOME OR THE HOME WHERE THE SUSPECT IS LOCATED. WE SEE THAT PHILADELPHIA POLICE VAN, DOORS OPEN, THAT IS OFTEN HOW SUSPECTS ARE TRANSPORTED AFTER THEY ARE PLACED IN CUSTODY. WE DO NOT KNOW IF THAT SUSPECT IS IN CUSTODY. AS JOE MENTIONED, HIS SOURCES ARE REPORTING THAT THIS PERSON WAS LIVE STREAMING THIS UP UNTIL 3 OR 4 MINUTES AGO. THAT IS NOT AN INDICATION AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THE BROADCAST STOPPED BECAUSE HE WAS PLACED IN CUSTODY. IT DOES NOT APPEAR ANYONE HAS COME OUT OF THE AREA. WE HAVE NOT HEARD ANY VOLLEYS OF GUNFIRE IN THE PAST 10 PLUS MINUTES. AND THE OFFICERS THAT WERE IN DEFENSIVE POSITIONS YOU CAN SEE S.W.A.T. MEMBERS RIGHT NOW WITH RIFLES PAST THE SCENE. THEY ARE NOT RUSHING TO ANY LOCATION. THEY ARE NOT IN DEFENSIVE POSITIONS. WHICH IS BY ALL MEANS AFTER A VERY ACTIVE AFTERNOON A GOOD INDICATION THAT THINGS ARE MORE CONTROLLED. I DON’T WANT TO SAY THEY ARE OVER. THERE IS A LOT TO PROCESS HERE BUT THERE SITUATION AT LEAST WITH S.W.A.T. MEMBERS AND THE POLICE IN CERTAIN POSITIONS HAS STARTED TO SHIFT. YOU CAN SEE MEMBERS OF THE S.W.A.T. TEAM RIGHT NOW IN THE DISTANCE THERE, THEY ARE STILL IN THEIR TACTICAL VEHICLE. THAT WHITE VAN HERE, WE HAVE NOT SEEN ANYONE — NO ONE HAS BEEN LOADED INTO THE VEHICLE. WE ARE HOPING THE SUSPECT IS IN CUSTODY BUT WE — I HEAR COMMANDS BEING YELLED AND THERE IS ONE S.W.A.T. MEMBER, I CAN SEE ON THE RIGHT PORTION PERHAPS OF THE SCREEN RUNNING TOWARD THE LOCATION, I CANNOT TELL A LOT THE S.W.A.T. MEMBERS ARE YELLING. THIS IS STILL GOING ON. THERE ARE OFFICERS IN MULTIPLE LOCATIONS THROUGHOUT THE AREA, I SEE ONE OFFICER TO THE RIGHT SIGNALING TO ONE OF HIS OFFICERS. I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN OR WHETHER THEY ARE STILL ENGAGING WITH THE SUSPECT. THE AMOUNT OF POLICE PHYSICALLY THAT I COULD SEE HAS CHANGED AT LEAST ON THIS BLOCK ON THE TIOGA SECTION OF NORTH PHILADELPHIA. >>I WAS WRITING NOTES AND — >>Reporter: THERE IS GUNFIRE. >>STILL GUNFIRE. >>Reporter: ALL RIGHT. THERE IS ACTIVE GUNFIRE. AND POLICE ARE NOW TELLING PEOPLE — IF THE SUSPECT CAN SEE YOU, IF YOU CAN SEE THE HOUSE, HE CAN SEE YOU. NOW THEY ARE ASKING EVERYONE — ALL RIGHT. ALL RIGHT. ALL RIGHT. THERE IS STILL GUNFIRE HAPPENING. WE ARE IN A LOCATION WHERE WE ARE BLOCKED BY VEHICLES BUT THE COMMUNITY IS GETTING A LITTLE BIT TENSE. WE ARE GETTING — ROUNDS WERE — CAME DOWN THERE STREET. THE SUSPECT STILL INSIDE? ONE OF THE COMMANDING OFFICERS HERE — WE WILL BE SAFE. WE WILL MOVE DOWN THE STREET SO BEAR WITH ME. WE ARE MOVING DOWN HAD STREET. ONE OF THE COMMANDING OFFICERS TOLD US EARLIER THAT A ROUND DID COME THOUSAND STREET. WASN’T WHILE WE WERE HERE BUT OBVIOUSLY WE WANT TO STAW SAFE. THERE IS A LOT OF LOCATION COMING RIGHT NOW. SOME ARGUMENTS WITH POLICE. BUT WE ARE GOING TO MOVE OVER TO THE SIDE HERE, GUYS. AND CONTINUE TO MONITOR THIS. THEY ARE ASKING US TO LEAVE BECAUSE THERE IS STILL ACTIVE GUNFIRE. >>YOU SAID — YOU SAID — STAY SAFE. WE SEE THERE IS A LOT OF ACTIVITY THERE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD AS WELL. POLICE AGAIN SAYING ONE OF THE ROUNDS DID GO DOWN THIS STREET. IF YOU CAN SEE THIS HOUSE, THEY CAN SEE YOU. THEY WANT PEOPLE TO GET OUT OF THE WAY. >>Reporter: I DID HEAR FROM THAT COMMANDING OFFICER WHO TOLD ME ABOUT THE ROUND BEING FIRED DOWN THERE STREET, HE SAID THE SUSPECT IS STILL INSIDE ENGAGING WITH POLICE. THE MOVEMENT OF THE VEHICLES MIGHT HAVE BEEN A LULL IN THERE ACTION BUT THE SUSPECT IS INSIDE, S.W.A.T. MEMBERS HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO PLACE HIM UNDER ARREST AND THE MEDIA AND THE FOLKS LIVING ON THIS BLOCK, THE POLICE MAKING THAT PRIORITY, THEIR FOCUS IS TO GET HIM INTO CUSTODY BUT THEY DO NOT WANT ANY OTHER INJURIES. THERE HAS BEEN ENOUGH BLOODSHED. HOPEFULLY THIS WRAPS UP. BECAUSE OF THE DANGEROUS SITUATION AND BECAUSE OF THE ANGLE WHERE THIS HOME IS, THEY DO NOT WANT ANYONE GETTING HIT WITH A STRAY BULLET. I DON’T KNOW WHAT TYPE OF WEAPON THE — SO — ALL RIGHT. >>THE SUSPECT HAS A RIFLE. OBVIOUSLY RIFLES CAN FIRE LONG DISTANCES. THIS SIDE OF THE STREET EXPOSED TO THAT POSSIBLE — >>GO TO THE END OF THE BLOCK. GO TO THE END OF THE BLOCK. >>Reporter: WE ARE GOING TO GO TO THE END OF THE BLOCK. >>OFFICIALS ARE TELLING EVERYONE TO CLEAR OUT. >>THEY DID SAY THEY BELIEVE THE SUSPECT HAS A RIFLE, WHICH WE KNOW IS CAPABLE OF FIRING MANY SHOTS. WE DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH AMMUNITION HE MAY HAVE. THIS HAS BEEN PLAYING OUT FOR MORE THAN TWO HOURS AND THERE HAS BEEN CONSTANT GUNFIRE SINCE THE BEGINNING SO WE HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH AMMUNITION THE SUSPECT HAS OR WHAT HE IS ENGAGED IN AT THIS POINT BUT THEY ARE STILL ENGAGING THE SUSPECT. IT IS NOT UNDER CONTROL. IT IS A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION IN THE TIOGA NEIGHBORHOOD. YOU CAN SEE RESIDENTS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IS GOING ON. THEY HAVE BEEN WATCHING THIS FROM THE BEGINNING. >>I LOOKED UP AND I THOUGHT — I HAVE TO CHECK BACK — I THOUGHT I SOUGHT A S.W.A.T. MEMBER WITH AN APPARATUS. ARE THEY ABOUT TO INITIATE GOING INTO THE HOME OR NOT? BUT SOMETHING IS ABOUT TO GO DOWN. SOMETHING ABOUT TO HAPPEN. FOR THIS SITUATION, ONCE AGAIN, TWO HOURS AND 15 MINUTES THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON. SEVEN OFFICERS WOUNDED AND/OR INJURED AND THE SUSPECT WAS LIVE STREAMING WHAT WAS GOING ON DURING THERE GUN BATTLE. >>LIVE STREAMING AS IT WAS PLAYING OUT. THEY WERE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO SHUT THAT DOWN. YOU CAN SEE HOW BRAZEN THE SUSPECT IS. THEY ARE STILL TAKING FIRE AT THIS POINT. HE IS STILL ENGAGED IN A GUN BATTLE WITH POLICE AND THEY ARE TRYING TO DE-ESCALATE THE SITUATION. YOU SAW THE S.W.A.T. TACTICAL VEHICLES THERE. ONE IN PLACE IN THERE STREET, OTHERS ARRIVING. ONE S.W.A.T. MEMBER WHO HAS A RIFLE TRAINED ON THE HOME WHERE WE BELIEVE THE SUSPECT IS HOLD UP AT THIS POINT. AGAIN, A VERY, VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION. WE HAVE LOTS OF MEDIA OUT THERE, WE WANT EVERYONE TO STAY SAFE. WE DON’T KNOW WHERE THE BULLETS COULD END UP. HAD ONE OF THE OFFICIALS SAID THIS IS A LIVE, ACTIVE SITUATION. THERE IS NO END IN SIGHT AT THE MOMENT. GREG MOVED DOWN AS HAVE MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY. AWAY FROM THE SCENE BECAUSE IF YOU ARE IN THE LINE OF SIGHT, THE GUNMAN CAN SEE YOU. AND STRAY BULLETS JUST GO. SEVEN OFFICERS HAVE BEEN HURT. >>SEVEN OFFICERS HURT. ONE WAS RESPONDING TO THE SCENE, MAY HAVE BEEN INJURED IN A CAR ACCIDENTALISM SIX OFFICERS SUSTAINED NON-LIFE- THREATENING INJURIES. OFFICERS TAKEN TO TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL. THAT IS HEADQUARTERS AT THIS POINTS FOR HIGH RANKING POLICE OFFICIALS. THE COMMISSIONER IS STILL HEADING THERE TO THE SCENE. THE MAYOR WILL BE THERE. THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY. OTHER TOP POLICE OFFICIALS ARE THERE AS WELL AND FAMILY MEMBERS OF THE OFFICERS HAVE BEEN RUSHING THERE TO THE HOSPITAL AS WELL. WE ARE AWAITING A PRESS CONFERENCE WHICH WILL SHED MORE LIGHT ON EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED THERE IN THAT 3700 BLOCK OF NORTH 15th STREET EARLIER TODAY. NARCOTICS OFFICERS SERVING A WARRANT. A SERVICE WARRANT OF SOME KIND. THAT IS HOW THIS STARTED. >>GATHERING INFORMATION, STILL TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IS GOING ON AND WAITING FOR OFFICIALS AND FAMILY MEMBERS THERE AT THE HOSPITAL. GREG, I UNDERSTAND, HEEDED THE OFFICER’S REQUEST BY MOVING BACK, WAY BACK. HOW FAR BACK ARE YOU RIGHT NOW AND GIVE US THE LATEST? >>Reporter: YEAH. YOU CAN SEE THE POLICE TAPE IS BEING PLACED BEHIND US. WE DID CHECK WITH, HE HAS CONFIRMED WE ARE SAFE. ESPECIALLY ON THIS SIDE. AND THAT IS BECAUSE THE SHOOTER WE ARE TOLD BY THAT COMMANDING OFFICER IS ARMED WITH A RIFLE. AND RIFLE ROUNDS CAN GO VERY FAR AND THEY ARE VERY ACCURATE. WE WERE TOLD EARLIER ONE OF THE SUSPECT’S BULLETS DID GO DOWN THERE STREET. NOT WHILE WE WERE HERE. THANK GOD. BUT THEY ARE MOVING THE PUBLIC. YOU CAN SEE ON THIS SIDE OF THE STREET. MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY ARE REFUSING TO LEAVE THEIR HOMES. THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO STAY IN THEIR HOMES BUT THE MEDIA IS HEEDING THE WARNING AND STAYING SAFE. WE WANT TO PROVIDE YOU THE LATEST INFORMATION, THE COMMANDER OFFICER TELLS US WE ARE IN A SAFE SPOT SO WE WILL INTO REPORT WHAT IS GOING ON. A VERY TENSE SITUATION, ONE THAT IS STILL ACTIVE AND LIVE ACCORDING TO THE COMMANDING OFFICER. A SUSPECT BARRICADED INSIDE A HOME. ABOUT TWO BLOCKS OR SO FROM WHERE I AM STANDING. I AM NOT GOING TO GIVE MY LOCATION BECAUSE THIS PERSON USES SOCIAL MEDIA, PERHAPS IS WATCHING TELEVISION, AND WAS STREAMING THIS LIVE ON SOCIAL MEDIA AS THIS WAS UNFOLDING. RIGHT NOW THE TERRIBLE NEWS IS SIX OFFICERS HAVE BEEN SLOT. WE ARE TOLD THESE INJURIES ARE NON-LIFE-THREATENING. A 7th OFFICER IN THE POLICE RESPONSE TO HELP OUT THE OTHERS THEREAT WERE INJURED WAS INJURED IN A CAR CRASH AS THAT PERSON WAS RESPONDING TO THE SCENE HERE. WE ARE IN THE TIOGA SECTION OF NORTH PHILADELPHIA. MEMBERS OF THE MEDIA ARE COVERING THIS. THE GOAL IS TO GIVE YOU THE INFORMATION AND KEEP SAFE. WE WANT TO GIVE YOU THE INFORMATION, BUT WE WANT IT STAY SAFE. LIKE I SAID, THIS BEGAN 4:35 P.M. THIS AFTERNOON. WE HEARD MULTIPLE — I MEAN, LOSING TRACK, FIVE OR SIX VOLLEYS OF GUNSHOTS BETWEEN POLICE AND THE S.W.A.T. TEAM. SINCE WE ARE FURTHER BACK YOU MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO TELL BUT THERE IS A TACTICAL S.W.A.T. UNIT. WE SAW A SECOND UNIT PASS BY. BUT THE TACTICAL UNIT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET HAS MULTIPLE S.W.A.T. MEMBERS ON IT, WITH RIFLES POINTED AT THE SUSPECT’S LOCATION. THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA, WHEN THERE IS OPEN FIRE FIGHTING HAPPENING, IT IS TO GET THEM IN CUSTODY AND TO REDUCE ANY INJURIES. WE ALREADY HAVE SEVEN OFFICERS, SIX SHOT, ONE INJURED IN THE RESPONSE. I DON’T BELIEVE THERE ARE CIVILIANS HURT BUT POLICE ARE KEEPING EVERYONE BACK TRYING TO GET MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY AND PEOPLE LIVING IN THE HOMES OUT OF THE LINE OF FIRE. IF WE PAN TO THE RIGHT HERE YOU CAN SEE A LARGE GROUP OF PEOPLE ON THAT HOME RIGHT THERE. THAT IS WHERE WE WERE STANDING ACROSS THE STREET FROM THEM. THAT SIDE OF THE STREET IN THE LINE OF FIRE. YOU KNOW, YOU DON’T WANT ANYONE TO GET HURT. POLICE ASKED THE FOLKS TO LEAVE BUT IT IS PRIVATE PROPERTY AND THEY DON’T HAVE TO. I CAN TELL YOU PERHAPS ONE OF THE MOST TENSE SITUATIONS I HAVE COVERED IN MY 11 YEARS OF REPORTING, I CAN TELL YOU, THE GOAL IS THE SUN IS STARTING TO SET. IT IS NEARLY 7:00 P.M. NOW. THIS STARTED MULTIPLE HOURS AGO. 4:35P.M. OR SO IN THE TIOGA SECTION OF NORTH PHILADELPHIA. A TERRIFYING SITUATION WITH GUNFIRE IN THE STREETS OF NORTH PHILADELPHIA BETWEEN THE SUSPECT AND PHILADELPHIA POLICE AND THE PHILADELPHIA S.W.A.T. TEAM. THESE ARE HIGHLY TRAINED MEN AND WOMEN WHO TRAIN FOR THIS BUT IT IS STILL SUCH A DANGEROUS SITUATION BECAUSE THIS PERSON, WE ARE TOLD BY THAT COMMANDING OFFICER WHO MOVED US BACK FOR OUR SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF THOSE IN THE COMMUNITY, THIS MAN IS ARMED WITH A RIFLE. I DON’T KNOW THE MODEL. BUT RIFLES CAN FIRE ACCURATELY AT LONG DISTANCES AND THEY DON’T WANT ANYONE GETTING HURT. AS OF 10 MINUTES AGO HE IS STILL NOT IN POLICE CUSTODY. >>WE DO NOT WANT PEOPLE HURT. I WISH THEY WOULD GET OUT OF THE LINE OF SIGHT OF THE AREA BUT AS YOU WERE GIVING YOUR REPORT, WE HAD SHOTS OF THE HOSPITAL. STAND BY. WE WILL GO TO THE HOSPITAL THERE WHERE WE SAW FAMILY MEMBERS, FRIENDS, COMING TO THE TRAUMA CENTER TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL AND WE SAW THE CITY COUNCIL PRESIDENT ARRIVE AS WELL. PEOPLE ON THEIR PHONES, PEOPLE TRYING TO GATHER INFORMATION. WE SAW A FEW HUGS AS FAR AS THE INJURED ARE CONCERNED. MANY FAMILY MEMBERS ARE GOING TO THE HOSPITAL RIGHT NOW TO CHECK ON THEIR LOVED ONES IN THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT. >>A LOT OF ACTIVITY AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL. IT IS THE HOSPITAL TO THE SCENE AND WHERE IT PLAYED OUT ON THE 3700 BLOCK OF NORTH 15th STREET IN THE TIOGA. THREE OF THERE FOUR OFFICERS WERE RUSHED TO TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL. ALL WITH NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES BUT MANY FAMILIES FILTERING INTO THE HOSPITAL TO CHECK ON THEIR LOVED ONES AND ARE CONTINUING TO DO THAT. SO WE ARE STILL AWAITING A PRESS CONFERENCE THAT WILL GIVE US MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CONDITION OF THOSE OFFICERS WHO HAVE BEEN SLOT AND INJURED AS WELL AS ACTUALLY WHAT TRANSPIRED AND WHAT STARTED THIS GUNFIRE. >>STARTED AT 4:35 P.M. THIS EVENING. YOU ARE LOOKING LIVE THAT TRAUMA AREA OF TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL. PEOPLE GOING IN AND OUT CHECKING ON THEIR FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES AND MEMBERS OF THEIR FAMILY IN THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT. THE PRESIDENT OF THE FOP LOOKS TO BE GOING INTO THE BUILDING AS WE ARE AWAITING A PRESS CONFERENCE. THIS IS THE SITUATION. YOU ARE LOOKING LIVE. GOING ON FOR A WHILE. CHAOS WHICH SEEMS TO BE DYING DOWN JUST A LITTLE BIT BUT IT IS STILL AN ACTIVE SITUATION. ú STILL SEEING S.W.A.T. TEAM MEMBERS WHO ARE DIFFUSING THE SITUATION THERE IN THE TIOGA SECTION OF NORTH PHILADELPHIA. THIS IS A BLOCK AWAY FROM WHERE THIS INITIALLY HAPPENED. I GREG IS CLOSELY LOCATED AND THEY PUSHED HIM BACK FOR HIS SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OTHERS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD BECAUSE THE SUSPECT HAS A RIFLE. HE CONTINUED TO ENGAGE POLICE IN GUNFIRE THROUGHOUT THIS EVENING AND THE AFTERNOON. NO SIGN OF STOPPING. WE ARE HEARING REPORTS OF THAT ACCORDING TO GREG AND THE POLICE SAY ONE OF THE ROUNDS CAME DOWN THERE STREET WHERE THE FOLKS ARE. THAT IS WHY THEY ARE KEEPING THEM AT BAY. A DANGEROUS SITUATION PLAYING THROUGHOUT IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD. >>LET’S CHECK BACK IN THAT CRIMINAL JUSTICE CENTER. JOE? >>Reporter: I GOT IN TOUCH WITH TWO SOURCES, WE REPORTED 30 MINUTES AGO IT WAS BELIEVED THE NUMBER THE CLIMBED TO SEVEN, IT IS STILL AT SIX. THERE WAS SOME CONFUSION WITH IF THAT NUMBER WAS INCLUDING THE OFFICER WHO WAS INJURED OFF LOCATION AND RESPONDING TO THE SCENE. SO IT IS SIX. FIVE HIT BY BULLETS AND THE OTHER OFFICER WHO WAS INJURED IN THE CAR CRASH RESPONDING TO THE SCENE. TO RECAP THE INFORMATION COMING FROM THE SOURCES, STILL NO TIME FRAME ON WHEN THE COMMISSIONER WILL ISSUE A STATEMENT AND POSSIBLY TAKE QUESTIONS ABOUT ALL OF THIS. IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT THEY ARE — FINGERS CROSSED HOPING THIS CONCLUDES SOONER RATHER THAN LATER. >>>HELLO. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. IN PHILADELPHIA, SEVERAL POLICE OFFICERS INJURED IN AN ACTIVE SHOOTER SITUATION. WITNESSES REPORT HEARING HUNDREDS OF SHOTS FIRED NEAR TEMPLE UNIVERSITY’S HEALTH SCIENCES CENTER CAMPUS. WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT HOW THIS SHOOTING UNFOLDED? >>Reporter: I CAN TELL YOU WE HAVE BEEN HERE FOR AN HOUR. WE HEARD MULTIPLE GUNSHOTS BEING FIRED. WE EVEN BEEN MOVED. YOU SEE WHERE THE FIRST YELLOW CAUTION TAPE IS? THERE IS A SECOND ONE. WE WERE AT THAT FIRST POLICE TAPE AND NOW WE HAVE BEEN MOVED BACK. POLICE SAY THEY ARE CONCERNED BECAUSE THIS IS AN ACTIVE SITUATION. THEY DON’T WANT ANYBODY TO GET HURT. THEY TOLD THE NEIGHBORS DON’T STAND HERE, STAND OFF TO THE SIDE. THEY DON’T WANT ANYONE TO GET INJURED. SIX POLICE OFFICERS SHOT. THE INJURIES IS INJURIES THERE IS SO MUCH MORE WE NEED TO LEARN. >>WE ARE WORRIED ABOUT YOUR SAFETY. DO YOU STILL HEAR GUNSHOTS? >>Reporter: YEAH. WHAT– WHEN WE WERE A LITTLE BIT CLOSER I CLD HEAR WHAT SOUNDED AS THOUGH THE S.W.A.T. TEAM OFFICERS NEGOTIATING WITH SOMEBODY INSIDE THE HOUSE IN QUESTION. IT IS OUR UNDERSTANDING THERE IS ONE PERSON IN THE HOUSE THAT IS CONTINUING TO FIRE AND WE ARE ALSO HEARING REPORTS THAT PERSON MIGHT BE LIVE STREAMING THE EVENTS. WE HAVEN’T SEEN EVIDENCE OF THAT BUT THAT IS SOMETHING THAT IS BEING REPORTED AT THIS HOUR. WE HAVEN’T HEARD GUNSHOTS IN THE LAST 5 TO 10 MINUTES OR SO BUT NOT THAT LONG AGO WE HEARD A POP, POP, POP. WHEN WE WERE CLOSER I HEARD 10 GUNSHOTS. THERE WERE NEIGHBORS HERE THAT SAY IT SOUNDED LIKE HUNDREDS OF GUNFIRE AT THE TIME. THAT HAPPENING AT 4:30 P.M. THIS AFTERNOON. MULTIPLE SUSPECTS HAVE BEEN ARRESTED AND AGAIN SIX OFFICERS SHOT. AND THEIR CONDITION AT THIS POINT THAT WE KNOW IS THEY ARE IN STABLE CONDITION. >>MULTIPLE SUSPECTS HAVE BEEN ARRESTED BUT AS FAR AS WE KNOW THE GUNMAN OR — IS THERE REASON TO BELIEVE THERE COULD BE MORE THAN ONE SHOOTER? >>Reporter: WE ARE HEARING THERE IS ONE SHOOTER INSIDE ONE OF THE HOMES. THE IT WAS NEAR A DAY CARE CENTER. A MOTHER IS CONCERNED WHY POLICE SHOULD HAVE MOVED IN QUICKER BECAUSE SHE IS CONCERNED ABOUT CHILDREN THAT MIGHT STILL BE IN THERE DAY CARE. >>SCARY. HAVE YOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO TALK TO OTHER PEOPLE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD? >>Reporter: MAINLY JUST THE PEOPLE WHO HEARD IT. AND ARE JUST AS CONCERNED AS ANYBODY WOULD BE WHEN YOU HEAR GUNFIRE AND THEN YOU SEE THE AMOUNT OF POLICE PRESENCE HERE. IF YOU ARE WATCHING, A LOT OF THE PEOPLE WATCHING LOCAL NEWS STATIONS AND THEY ARE SEEING THE HELICOPTERS. YOU CAN SEE OR HEAR THEM ABOVE. SO JUST EVEN GETTING THAT, SEEING THE LARGE POLICE PRESENCE IS CONCERNING FOR RESIDENTS HERE. >>THERE IS NO INFORMATION YET ON A POSSIBLE MOTIVE. IS THAT RIGHT? >>Reporter: OUR UNDERSTANDING IS POLICE WERE HERE TO SERVE AN ARREST WARRANT AND THERE WERE MULTIPLE PEOPLE INSIDE THE HOUSE. AGAIN, WE BELIEVE SOME OF THE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN TAKEN INTO CUSTODY AND ONE PERSON IS STILL INSIDE THE HOUSE FIRING GUNSHOTS AT POLICE. >>YOU MENTIONED AT THE BEGINNING THERE, THE REPORTS YOU HEARD, THE SUSPECT MAY HAVE BEEN LIVE STREAMING SOME OF THIS, IS THERE ANYTHING MORE YOU CAN TELL US ABOUT THAT? P JUST TO HEAR SOMETHING LIKE THAT IS BAZAAR, WHERE WE DON’T HAVE EVIDENCE OF IT BUT IT IS BEING REPORTED AT THIS HOUR. >>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AND PLEASE, STAY SAFE. THANK YOU. >>PAUL JOINS ME NOW ON THE PHONE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR CALLING IN. WHAT IS A TYPICAL RESPONSE FROM POLICE IN THESE SITUATIONS AND THIS IS STILL AN ACTIVE SITUATION AS FAR AS WE KNOW. >>RIGHT. THAT IS CRITICAL FOR EVERYBODY TO UNDERSTAND. THIS IS A FLUID SITUATION. WHAT YOU ARE SEEING IS A PERIMETER BEING SET BY POLICE. THEY UNDERSTAND WHERE THE THREAT IS AND WHERE IT IS COMING FROM SO THEY WILL SET THE INTERIOR PERIMETER, THAT IS WHERE YOU SEE THE YELLOW TAPE. POLICE OPERATE INSIDE THAT. NO ONE WILL COME INSIDE THAT OUTSIDE OF POLICE. THEY WILL START TO EVACUATE HOMES. THEY CAN’T FORCE EVACUATION BUT THEY CAN ASK PEOPLE. ALL HOMES WITHIN THE AREA THAT THEY FEEL IS GOING TO BE HIGH RISK. THEY WILL TRY TO ESTABLISH EYES AND EARS INSIDE THAT PARTICULAR HOME SO THAT THEY CAN UNDERSTAND AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE WHAT IS GOING ON. THEY WILL OPEN UP LINES OF COMMUNICATION. YOU WILL AVE A NEGOTIATOR FROM THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. PHILADELPHIA HAS ONE OF THE MOST EXPERIENCED UNITS IN THE COUNTRY. YOU WILL SEE A NEGOTIATOR THAT WILL OPEN LINES OF COMMUNICATION WITH THE INDIVIDUAL INSIDE AND DO THEIR BEST TO EXPLAIN IT IS IN THEIR BEST INTEREST TO SURROUNDER. THAT IS PROBABLY GOING ON RIGHT NOW. >>THERE IS AN INTERIOR PERIMETER, WHEN WE LOOK AT THE WIDE SHOT AND SEE THE POLICE TAPE, THAT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE A BIG AREA. ARE YOU SAYING THE SUSPECT IS SUSPECTED TO BE WITHIN THAT AREA? >>THAT IS CORRECT. NOW ALSO, IF YOU CAN SEE, YOU CAN SEE THERE ARE VEHICLES AT THE ENDS OF EACH STREET. THAT IS THE OUTER PERIMETER. PROBABLY THE UNIFORMED OFFICERS FROM THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT THAT ARE GOING TO BE POSTED AT THAT AREA TO MAKE SURE THAT — THIS IS A GREAT SHOT HERE, YOU CAN SEE THAT OUTER PERIMETER THAT POLICE SET TO ENSURE THAT NO ONE CAN COME CLOSE. THAT IS THE OUTER PERIMETER. >>YOU MENTIONED THAT THEY CANNOT FORCE PEOPLE TO EVACUATE. THIS IS STILL A DANGEROUS AND FLUID SITUATION. >>NO, IT IS. VERY MUCH SO. HAVING BEEN DOWN THIS ROAD YOU CAN ONLY DO YOUR BEST, YOU CAN’T FORCE SOMEONE OUT OF THE HOUSE. THIS IS WHERE THE COMMUNICATION SKILLS OF POLICE OFFICERS COME IN HANDY. TO EXPLAIN IT IS IN THEIR BEST INTEREST AND TO HELP THEM EVACUATE AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE AND AS SAFELY AS POSSIBLE AND ENSURE AS SOON AS THE RISK IS MITIGATED THEY WILL BE ESCORTED BACK TO THEIR HOME. MAKE SURE THAT AREA IS CLEAR OF ANY KIND OF COLLATERAL DAMAGE SO THAT POLICE CAN TAKE CHARGE OF THAT SITUATION AND OPEN UP THOSE LINES OF COMMUNICATION SO THAT HOPEFULLY THEY CAN MITIGATE THIS WITHOUT ANYMORE SHOTS. >>SHE COULD HEAR THE NEGOTIATION TAKING PLACE. IN A SITUATION LIKE THIS, POLICE KNOW THE SHOOTER HAS FIRED MANY ROUNDS. MULTIPLE ROUNDS. WITNESS REPORT HEARING HUNDREDS OF GUNSHOTS. WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU ABOUT THE AMMUNITION CAPACITY OF THE SUSPECT. >>HAVING DONE THIS FOR 40 YEARS NOW, I CAN TELL YOUWHEN YOU HEAR GUNFIRE IT IS A TRAUMATIC EVENT AND FOR A CIVILIAN TO HEAR THAT, YOU KNOW, WHAT MAY SOUND LIKE A HUNDRED MAY NOT HAVE BEEN A HUNDRED. AND YOU HAVE THE HUGE ADRENALINE RUSH GOING THROUGH EVERYONE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD RIGHT NOW. SO I WANT TO SAY YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT WITH A GRAIN OF SALT. YOU DON’T NECESSARILY KNOW FOR SURE THAT A HUNDRED ROUNDS WERE A HUNDRED ROUNDS. YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAID THEY HEARD THEM IN SUCCESSION WHICH IS TELLING POLICE THE TYPE OF WEAPON OR WEAPONS THE INDIVIDUAL HAS. >>THERE IS NO WAY TO GAUGE WHEN HE MAY BE OUT OF AMMUNITION, WHEN IT MAY BE SAFE TO STORM THE LOCATION. >>YOU ARE CORRECT. AFTER 4:30 P.M. EASTERN TIME, NARCOTIC OFFICERS WERE ATTEMPTING TO SERVE A WARRANT AT THAT HOUSE, WHICH WOULD TELL US THAT NARCOTIC OFFICERS HAD INTELLIGENCE OF THE INDIVIDUAL OR INDIVIDUALS AND THE HOUSE. TYPICALLY THAT MEANS THEY HAVE ALREADY DONE SURVEILLNCE ON THE HOUSE, SO IT IS NOT LIKE THEY ARE GOING IN BLIND. THEY PROBABLY HAVE A GOOD AMOUNT OF INFORMATION THAT WILL ASSIST THEM IN GOOD POSITIVE LINES OF COMMUNICATION WITH THE SUSPECT TO HOPEFULLY MITIGATE THIS. >>THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR FILLING US IN ON WHAT IS GOING ON RIGHT THERE ON THE GROUND AS WE SPEAK. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >>FOR CONTINUED SHOOTING WE WILL TURN TO OUR CBS STATION THERE, KYW. >>WE BELIEVE SOME PARTS OF TEMPLE UNIVERSITY’S HEALTH SCIENCES CENTER CAMPUS IS STILL IN A LOCK DOWN MODE. WE BELIEVE THAT IS STILL LIKELY THE CASE BECAUSE THE SITUATION IS NOT RESOLVED YET. WE DON’T RELEASE THAT LOCK DOWN UNTIL THEY KNOW THEY CAN RELEASE FOLKS TO BE SAFE. >>TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL IS MINUTES AWAY. MINUTES AWAY FROM THE SITUATION. THEY DO AMAZING WORK THERE. WE ARE WAITING TO HEAR FROM THERE POLICE COMMISSIONER. HE IS ON THE WAY TO THE HOSPITAL. THE MAYOR IS ON THE WAY. IF THEY ARE NOT THERE ALREADY. >>WE ARE HEARING THIS IS A NEGOTIATION THAT IS TAKING PLACE IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE THE S.W.A.T. TEAM MEMBERS ARE. THERE ARE SEVERAL POLICE OFFICERS THERE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD. THIS IS AN ACTIVE REQUEST, NOT REQUEST, THEY ARE BEGGING HIM TO COME OUT OF THE HOUSE, TO RESOLVE THIS AT THIS POINT SO NO OTHER ACTION HAS TO BE TAKEN. THE GUNMAN IS STILL IN THE HOUSE. POLICE ARE STILL TRYING TO CONVINCE HIM TO SURRENDER SO THEY COULD RESOLVE THIS SITUATION IN A PEACEFUL WAY. IT DOES NOT APPEAR HE WOULD BE THREATENED BY THIS BECAUSE HE CONTINUED TO ENGAGE THEM. SO THERE IS STILL GUNFIRE FROM THE BEGINNING OF THIS SCENE AT 4:30 P.M. WHEN THE NARCOTICS UNIT WENT THERE TO ISSUE THE WARRANT. SIX POLICE OFFICERS WERE SHOT. THEY ARE WOUNDED. FIVE SHOT, ONE WOUNDED RESPONDING TO THE SCENE. ALL NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES. POLICE ARE RIGHT NOW URGING THIS SUSPECT TO PLEASE SURRENDER, TRYING TO RESOLVE THIS. >>WE SEE ACTIVITY NOW. WHENEVER YOU SEE OFFICERS RUN YOU IMMEDIATELY CENTER YOUR VIEW ON THE SCREEN. THE PACE PICKED UP. OFFICERS ARMED WITH RIFLES. THEY ARE STEPPING WITH A LOT OF PACE NOW. LET’S GO TO GREG NOW. >>Reporter: WE HAVE NEW INFORMATION ON WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE TIOGA. WE JUST WITNESSED FOUR FEMALES, TWO WOMEN AND TWO YOUNGER WOMEN BEING ESCORTED BY THE PHILADELPHIA S.W.A.T. TEAM AND THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT. OUR PHOTO JOURNALIST WAS ABLE TO TALK WITH THEM. THEY WERE INSIDE THE HOUSE AT THE TIME ON THE SECOND FLOOR AND THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE SAVED THEM. THAT JUST HAPPENED. THEY WERE ESCORTED AWAY BY UNIFORMED MEMBERS AND THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE. RIGHT NOW ON THE SCENE WHERE THE FOUR LADIES JUST CAME FROM, S.W.A.T. LOCATED, MANY PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY STILL GATHERED. ALL EYES ON THIS ONE HOME IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA. ALL BEGINNING AROUND 4:35 P.M. FOR A WARRANT SERVICE CALL. MY COLLEAGUE SAID IT IS ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS CALLS MEMBERS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT CAN GO ON BECAUSE THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY COULD ENCOUNTER AND IN THIS SITUATION TODAY, WEDNESDAY, THEY ENCOUNTERED GUNFIRE. SIX OFFICERS SHOT BUT THOSE OFFICERS HAVE NON-LIFE- THREATENING INJURIES. WE ARE ALSO TOLD PHILADELPHIA POLICE, THERE ARE NON-LIFE- THREATENING INJURIES. THE NON-GUNSHOT INJURIES AS WELL THE SIXTH OFFICER SHOT. WE ARE TOLD THEY ARE NON-LIFE- THREATENING. BUT WHEN YOU HAVE SIX OFFICERS HOT AND A SUSPECT IN A METROPOLITAN AREA BARRICADED AS THE SUN IS SETTING, IT IS A DANGEROUS SITUATION IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA. PLEBS OF THEMEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY HAVE BEEN TOLD TO GET OUT OF THE STREET. THEY ARE IN THE LINE OF FIRE. THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO STAY THERE. THEY HAVE NOT MOVED. OFFICERS TOLD US WE ARE IN A SAFE POLICE. EVEN THOUGH EARLIER ONE SHOT WAS FIRED BY THE SUSPECT WHO HAS SOME TYPE OF RIFLE. CAME DOWN THIS STREET. IT DID NOT HIT ANYONE. SHOWS YOU THE DANGEROUSNESS, THE DANGEROUS SITUATION THAT CAN UNFOLD IN A SECOND. THERE ARE POLICE NEGOTIATORS HERE. MULTIPLE S.W.A.T. MEMBERS. THESE OFFICERS AS WELL AS THE S.W.A.T. MEMBER WERE THE ONES WHO WERE ESCORTING THE FOUR FEMALES FROM THE SCENE. TWO WOMEN, TWO YOUNGER, TEENS OR CHILDREN WHO TOLD OUR PHOTO JOURNALIST HERE ON SCENE THEY WERE ON THE SECOND FLOOR OF THIS HOME, I DON’T KNOW IF THAT IS WHERE THE SUSPECT WAS, THEY WERE ON THE SECOND FLOOR WHEN THE SHOTS WERE RINGING OUT AND THEY WERE SAVED BY THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE. THEY WERE UPSET AND CRYING BUT THEY ARE NOW IN A SAFE LOCATION. I CAN’T IMAGINE WHAT WAS GOING THROUGH THEIR MINDS BECAUSE THIS HAS NOW EXTENDED INTO HOUR THREE. SHOTS FIRED AT 4:35 P.M. HUNDREDS OF OFFICERS THROUGHOUT THE CITY, POLICE, THE PHILADELPHIA SHERIFF’S OFFICE DESCENDING UPON THIS SCENE HERE. TIOGA SECTION OF NORTH PHILADELPHIA. NOT GIVING THE EXACT LOCATION BECAUSE WE DON’T KNOW IF THE SUSPECT IS IN CUSTODY OR WATCHING. HE IS ARMED WITH A RIFLE AND MULTIPLE ROUNDS OVER THE PAST ALMOST THREE HOURS, I HEARD FIVE VOLLEYS OF FIRE. WE HEARD NEGOTIATORS WITH THE S.W.A.T. TEAM TRYING TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE SUSPECT. THIS SUSPECT WAS LIVE STREAMING THE ENTIRE SITUATION, THIS DANGEROUS SITUATION ON SOME TYPE OF SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM. WHICH IS INCREDIBLE. FOUR WOMEN WERE BEING ESCORTED OUT AND NOW IT IS A WAITING GAME. WE ARE WAITING TO SEE HOW THIS IS GOING TO WRAP UP. THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT, THE S.W.A.T. MEMBERS ARE IN FRONT OF THE HOME, A FEW BLOCKS NORTH OF WHERE I AM STANDING HERE AND THEY HAVE MADE CONTACT WITH THIS SUSPECT WHO IS LIVE STREAMING THIS. THEY HAVE TO END THIS. THE SUN IS ETING. I DON’T KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF OFFICERS WILL BRING SPOTLIGHTS OUT WHEN THE SUNSETS BECAUSE THIS BLOCK HERE IS SHADED AND THEY HAVE TO HAVE EYES ON THE SUSPECT. EVERYONE IN THE COMMUNITY, EVERYONE IN THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT, EVERYONE WATCHING WANTS TO SEE THIS END. IT HAS BEEN HOURS OF GUNFIRE IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA AND A TERRIFYING SITUATION. WE HAVE BEEN HERE THREE HOURS. THIS PERSON IS APPARENTLY — THERE IS COMMOTION HAPPENING. I THINK IT IS INTERACTION WITH POLICE. I DON’T HEAR GUNFIRE. HOPEFULLY THIS WRAPS UP VERY SOON AS THE SUNSETS. >>WHEN YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE FOUR WOMEN SAVE BY THE POLICE, I AM THINKING ABOUT THE DESIGN OF MOMENTS HOMES IN CERTAIN PARTS OF THE CITY. MAYBE YOU CAN TELL IF MAYBE THEY WENT — IF MAYBE THEY WENT ON THE ROOF TO GET TO THE SECOND FLOOR TO GET THEM OUT. MAYBE A WINDOW. >>Reporter: I AM NOT SURE. FROM OUR ADVANTAGE POINT, I CAN’T SPECIFICALLY SEE THE HOME THAT IS THE TARGET OF THE PHILADELPHIA S.W.A.T. TEAM HERE IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA BUT I CAN TELL YOU IT APPEARS TO BE A TRADITIONAL HOME WITH THE FRONT FACING WINDOWS AND THE FRONT PORCH. THE WOMEN DID TELL OUR PHOTO JOURNALIST THAT THEY WERE ON THE SECOND FLOOR OF THE BUILDING. I DO NOT KNOW IF THAT IS WHERE THE SUSPECT IS LOCATED OR IF HE IS ON A THIRD FLOOR PERHAPS OR THE FIRST FLOOR BUT THEY WERE CRYING AS THEY WERE ESCORTED DOWN THE STREET. I AM GOINGS. THERE WAS COMMOTION HAPPENING. IMAGINE BEING IN THIS HOME, WHERE I COUNTED MORE THAN 25 SHOTS FIRED, AND I WASN’T EVEN HERE FOR THE INITIAL INTERACTION, BUT WE WERE INCHING TOWARD THE SCENE BECAUSE THE POLICE RESPONSE WAS SO MASSIVE. WHENEVER THERE ARE OFFICER INJURED OR SHOT, OF COURSE, ANYONE WHO IS AVAILABLE IS GOING TO RUSH TO THE SCENE HERE IN LAW ENFORCEMENT. THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED AT 4:35 P.M. MEMBERS OF THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT ARE ENGAGING — GO AHEAD? >>I AM GOINGS. ARE YOU SEEING SOMETHING? >>Reporter: THEY ARE ENGAGING MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY. THEY HAVE BEEN ASKED TO GET OFF THAT SIDE OF THE STREET BECAUSE THEY ARE IN THE LINE OF FIRE. THAT IS WHY WE MOVED TO THE SAFE LOCATION. THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE THERE. IT IS THEIR PROPERTY. THEY HAVE NOT MOVED. I DON’T KNOW — I SEE SOME OF THE DETECTIVES AND THE COMMAND STAFF HERE WITH THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT WALKING ACROSS THE STREET HERE IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA. I DON’T KNOW IF THIS IS COMING TO A CONCLUES. I HAVE NOT HEARD GUNFIRE IN THE PAST 30 MINUTES OR SO. WE SEE OFFICERS RUNNING BUT I CANNOT TELL YOU WHERE THEY ARE RUNNING TO. THE FOUR WOMEN ESCORTED FROM THE HOUSE, THEY SAID THEY WERE IN WHEN THIS UNFOLDED. HERE IS WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY. TAKE A LISTEN AS TO WHAT THEY TOLD OUR PHOTO JOURNALIST. >>I THINK — I THINK — I THANK GOD FOR THE COP. THEY ARE GOOD PEOPLE. DON’T SAY NOTHING BAD ABOUT THEM. THEY KEPT US SAFE THE WHOLE TIME. THEY KEPT US SAFE. SECOND FLOOR. >>Reporter: QUITE A TERRIFYING SITUATION FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE HOME AT THE TIME THIS UNFOLDED. WE ARE TOLD THAT THIS SHOOTER IS STILL INSIDE THE HOUSE, S.W.A.T. DEALING WITH THIS BARRICADE SITUATION. I DON’T KNOW IF THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE INSIDE THE HOME BUT THE GREAT NEWS TONIGHT AS YOU HEARD, DESPITE THEM BEING SHAKEN UP, THOSE FOUR WOMEN ARE OKAY. THEY WERE ESCORTED AWAY FROM THE SCENE BY THE PHILADELPHIA S.W.A.T. TEAM AND THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE. STILL AN ACTIVE SCENE. WE WILL REMAIN LIVE. WE WILL GIVE YOU LIVE PICTURES AND AS MUCH INFORMATION AS WE CAN. TO RECAP, 4:35 P.M. THIS AFTERNOON THIS STARTED. ONE SHOOTER CONFIRMED WITH A RIFLE. SIX OFFICERS INJURED. NOT NON-LIFE-THREATENING. THOSE OFFICERS ARE SUFFERING FROM NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES. THERE ARE MULTIPLE NON-GUNSHOT INJURIES AS WELL ACCORDING TO THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL TWITTER ACCOUNT. . >>>OUTSIDE THE TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM WHERE THE BULK OF WOUNDED OFFICERS WERE TRANSPORTED AFTER CHAOS ERUPTED IN THE TIOGA SECTION OF NORTH PHILADELPHIA. TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL AND OTHER HOSPITALS QUICKLY WENT INTO LOCK DOWN AS BROKE LOOSE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND A GUN BATTLE ENSUED BETWEEN THE POLICE DEPARTMENT AND TWO SUSPECTS. THEY WERE THERE TO SERVE A WARRANT. AND THE NARCOTICS UNIT WAS FIRST ON SCENE ACCORDING TO A POLICE CAPTAIN AND THEN FROM THAT POINT FORWARD THINGS WENT DOWN HILL AND POLICE BEGAN IN THIS GUN BATTLE WITH TWO SUSPECTS. THE ONE SUSPECT OUR SOURCES TELL US DETAILED AT THE SCENING. IT IS UNCLEAR IF HE HAS BEEN TRANSPORTED TO CENTRAL DETECTIVES OR THE ROUND HOUSE. I UNDERSTAND GREG, THERE IS MORE ACTIVITY FROM WHERE YOU ARE. WHAT ARE YOU SEEING? >>Reporter: YEAH. JUST THE PAST 20 SECONDS AS YOU GAVE US THE UPDATE ABOUT THE PRESIDENT BEING INFORM ABOUT THE SITUATION IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA, WE HEARD ONE GUNSHOT. IT APPEARED TO BE POSSIBLY A RIFLE BEING SHOT. WE KNOW AND WE SEE THE PHILADELPHIA S.W.A.T. TEAM THERE ARMED WITH RIFLES AS WE CONFIRMED THE SUSPECT IS ARMED WITH ONE AS WELL. WE ARE NOT SURE IF THE SHOT WAS FIRED BY POLICE OR THE SUSPECT. WE HAVE NOT SEEN MUCH COMMOTION SO TO SPEAK FROM POLICE AS THAT SHOT RANG OUT. IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN FROM THE S.W.A.T. TEAM. BUT ONCE AGAIN, MORE GUNSHOTS BEING FIRED RIGHT NOW. AND SO — >>Reporter: I WAS GOING TO SAY — >>Reporter: I WANT TO SHOW — >>Reporter: SORRY — >>Reporter: I WANT TO SHOW YOU — THIS THESE FOLKS — GO AHEAD. . >>Reporter: I WAS SAYING PHILADELPHIA POLICE HAVE BEEN CONFRONTED ALL SUMMER WITH AN UPTICK IN GUN VIOLENCE AND NEWT LINK THINGS BUT MY SOURCES HAVE BEEN AT FEVER PITCH OF FRUSTRATION WITH WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN CONFRONTED WITH AND IT GOES BACK TO MAY WHERE THEY ROLLED OUT OPERATION PINPOINT WHICH WAS A SATURATION OF AREAS OF THE CITY THAT THEY DETECTED WERE SUSCEPTIBLE OF HIGHER RATES OF GUN VIOLENCE. IT APPEARS THAT POLICE HAVE ALSO BEEN SIMILARLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE HIGH RATE OF GUN ARRESTS THAT HAVE HAPPENED ON THE STREETS THIS SUMMER. MY ONE SOURCE TOLD ME THAT THEY WERE NEARING THE ENTIRE GUN ARREST TOTAL FROM 2018 JUST NOW. SO THIS IS AN EXTREMELY HOT SITUATION FOR PHILADELPHIA POLICE AS THOSE ON THE GROUND ARE CONFRONTED WITH A SERIOUS SET OF CIRCUMSTANCES. ONE THAT HAS BECOME VIOLENT FOR THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT WHERE SIX ARE WOUNDED IN A SHOOT OUT WITH AT LEAST TWO PEOPLE WHO WERE BEING SOUGHT FOR AN ACTIVE WARRANT RELATED TO A NARCOTIC INVESTIGATION. >>Reporter: AND AS YOU MENTIONED FOR, THE VIEWERS HERE WHO DON’T LIVE IN THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA BUT WATCHING FROM THE SURROUNDING AREAS, YOU KNOW, WE ARE IN A DENSE CITY. THIS IS NORTH PHILADELPHIA. HIGHLY POPULATED. AND OVER THE PAST NOW ALMOST THREE HOURS THERE HAS BEEN AN ACTIVE VOLLEY OF GUNFIRE BETWEEN PHILADELPHIA POLICE AND ONE SUSPECT. WE ARE NOT IN A RURAL AREA. THIS IS RIGHT NEAR BROAD STREET IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA, TIOGA SECTION OF NORTH PHILADELPHIA AND THERE IS ACTIVE GUNFIRE BETWEEN THE PHILADELPHIA S.W.A.T. TEAM AND AT LEAST ONE SUSPECT. YOU HEARD FROM FOUR WOMEN WHO WERE INSIDE OF THAT HOME THEY SAY WHEN THIS ALL UNFOLDED, SHAKEN UP. IMAGINE BEING INSIDE. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEIR RELATIONSHIP IS TO THE SUSPECT, IF ANY, BUT THEY WERE INSIDE THE HOUSE AS THEY MENTIONED ON THE SECOND FLOOR WHEN THIS HAPPENED. THIS WARRANT, CALL FOR A WARRANT SERVICE, SOMEONE HAS AN ARREST WARRANT, A WARRANT OUT FOR THEIR ARREST, A FELONY ARREST WARRANT, PHILADELPHIA POLICE GET INFORMATION AS TO WHERE THE PERSON IS AND THEY TRY TO MAKE THE ARREST WITHOUT INCIDENT AND THAT IS NOT WHAT HAPPENED. WHAT HAPPENED HERE TODAY AT 4:35 P.M. THIS AFTERNOON IS OFFICERS WITH THE NARCOTICS UNIT ATTEMPTED TO SERVE THIS WARRANT AND SIX OF THEM WERE THOUGHT WITH NON-LIFE- THREATENING INJURIES WE ARE TOLD. NOW WE ARE INTO HOUR THREE IN A DENSE POPULATED SECTION OF PHILADELPHIA WHERE THERE IS AFFECTIVE FIRE — ACTIVE FIRE AS THE SUN IS SETTING. WE WILL SHOW THE FOLKS GATHERED FROM THIS NEIGHBORHOOD, STANDING ON ELEVATED POSITIONS TO THE RIGHT AT THAT HOME, WE WERE ON THE GROUND NEAR THEM WE WERE TOLD THEY ARE IN THE LINE OF FIRE AND EARLIER TODAY WHEN THIS UNFOLDED, AT LEAST ONE RIFLE ROUND TRAVELED DOWN THIS STREET. THANK GOODNESS IT DIDN’T HIT ANYONE BUT THIS SITUATION COULD TURN. THOSE FOLKS HAVE NOT HEEDED THE WARNINGS TO GET OUT OF THE LINE OF FIRE. WE HAVE TAKEN THE WARNINGS. WE WANT TO PROVIDE YOU THE INFORMATION SAFELY. PHILADELPHIA S.W.A.T., THEIR GOAL ESPECIALLY AS THE SUN IS SETTING AND IT GETS HARDER TO SEE HERE IN THE TIOGA SECTION OF NORTH PHILADELPHIA, THEY WANT TO GET THIS PERSON IN HANDCUFFS AND FIGURE OUT WHAT IN THE WORLD WENT DOWN. WHY IT ALL HAPPENED. AND WHY SIX OF THEIR BROTHERS AND SISTERS ARE NOW IN EMERGENCY ROOMS DEALING WITH GUNSHOT WOUNDS. THESE ARE NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES. IF THERE IS ANY SILVER LINING IN THIS CHAOS, THE GOOD NEWS IS THEY HAVE NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES. I WANT TO GO BACK TO JOE AT THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE CENTER WITH NEW INFORMATION. >>Reporter: THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THE SERGEANT WITH THE OFFICE OF THE PUBLIC AFFAIRS PUT A TWEET OUT, OFFICERS INTO ATTEMPT TO COMMUNICATE WITH SUSPECT, SUSPECT IS STILL FIRING AT OFFICERS. STAY AWAY FROM THE AREA. IT CANNOT BE EMPHASIZED ENOUGH THAT THIS IS STILL ONGOING. THERE IS HOPE IT COULD BE RESOLVED BUT THE FACT THE SUSPECT IS STILL FIRING AT OFFICERS ACCORDING TO THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT, AND NOW WE ARE THREE HOURS AND FIVE MINUTES INTO THE STAND OFF BETWEEN PHILADELPHIA POLICE AND THIS SUSPECT. SO AT 4:30 P.M. THIS AFTERNOON THINGS WENT DOWN HILL IN THE TIOGA SECTION OF NORTH PHILADELPHIA. A DENSELY POPULATED AREA.>>WE WILL STAY WITH LIVE PICTURES AS YOU ARE LOOKING RIGHT NOW. WE WILL GET BACK TO THEM IN A MOMENT BUT WE WILL STAY WITH THIS LIVE VIDEO. WE HAVE A RECORDING. WE WANT TO PLAY THE CALL FOR HELP. IT MAY BE A LITTLE DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS COMING OVER THE SCANNER BUT I AM SURE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GET THERE GIST OF IT ALL. LET’S PLAY THAT RIGHT NOW. >>STAND BY. STAND BY SHOTS FIRED AT POLICE. >>SHOTS FIRED AT POLICE. >>POSSIBLY — INJURED OFFICERS. POSSIBLE BARRICADE. >>USE CAUTION. >>STAND BY. STAND BY. SHOTS FIRED. SHOTS FIRED INSIDE. >>S.W.A.T. ASAP. LONG GUNS ASAP. >>OFFICERS SHOT. OFFICERS SHOT. >>OFFICER SHOT IN THE LEG. >>ADDITIONAL CARS IMMEDIATELY. >>ADDITIONAL CARS. >>STILL SHOTS FIRED. I HAVE OFFICERS SHOT. >>STANDS BY. >>SEVERAL SHOT OFFICERS. OFFICER DOWN. >>LONG GUNS. THEY ARE STILL BEING SHOT AT. >>THE DRAMATIC 911 CALL EARLIER THIS AFTERNOON HERE IN PHILADELPHIA. >>DIFFICULT TO LICENSE IT THAT. JUST TO HEAR THE OFFICERS, THE MOMENTS AS THIS SHOOTING WAS UNFOLDING IN THE 3700 BLOCK OF NORTH 15th STREET. OFFICER SHOT. LOWER EXTREMITAS. CALLING FOR S.W.A.T. ASAP IN THAT AREA. WHEN A CALL LIKE THIS GOES OUT OFFICERS FROM AROUND THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA NO MATTER WHAT DISTRICT, WHAT AREA, THEY DROP EVERYTHING, THEY SWARM TO THE SCENE. THAT IS WHAT WE SAW AND WHAT WE ARE SEEING NOW AT THIS HOUR AS HUNDREDS OF POLICE OFFICERS ARE THERE IN THE TIOGA SECTION OF NORTH PHILADELPHIA. THIS SITUATION IS STAR FROM OVER. THE SUSPECT WAS STILL HOLD UP THERE IN THE AREA, A COUPLE BLOCKS AWAY FROM WHERE THIS INITIALLY HAPPENED. POLICE IMPLORING HIM TO SURRENDER AND TRY TO RESOLVE THIS AS PEACEFULLY AS POSSIBLE AS NIGHT FALL IS ABOUT TO TRANSCEND ON THE AREA. >>IT IS 7:36 P.M. AND THAT HAS NOT DIMINISHED THE TENSION OF THE SITUATION. IT HAS HEIGHTENED AS WE CONTINUE TO WAIT. ALMOST THREE HOURS PASSED. NO RESOLUTION SO FAR. THE INJURED ARE AT TWO AREA HOSPITALS WITH NON-LIFE- THREATENING INJURIES. GREG REPORTED MOMENTS AGO FOUR PEOPLE WERE IN THE HOME WHERE THE GUNMAN IS. THEY WERE RESCUED BY POLICE. WE HEARD FROM THEM. SHAKEN, FRIGHTENED AND DISTURBED BUT THEY ARE OKAY. THE TWEET FROM THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT, THEY ARE IMPLORING THE GUNMAN TO GIVE HIMSELF UP. GIVE HIMSELF UP AT THIS TIME. THE CITY COUNCIL PRESIDENT ON YOUR LEFT. I AM SURE A PRESS CONFERENCE WILL BE — I GUESS TAKE PLACE IN MOMENTS WE HOPE. UNTIL THEN THE SITUATION CONTINUES AS YOU LOOK AT THE LIVE SCENE. >>POLICE SAY THE SUSPECT, DESPITE THE FACT THEY HAVE BEEN ASKING HIM TO SURRENDER FOR HOURS NOW. THAT IS NOT THE CASE. THEY HAVE CONTINUED TO TAKE FIRE FROM THE SUSPECT. THEY ARE CONTINUING TO BE FIRED UPON BY THE SUSPECT ACCORDING TO PHILADELPHIA POLICE. BUT THEY ARE ALSO CONTINUING TO TRY TO NEGOTIATE WITH HIM AND TRYING TO RESOLVE THE SITUATION AS PEACEFULLY AS POSSIBLE. >>I WONDER HOW SERIOUSLY THE GUNMAN IS TAKING THIS. HE WAS LIVE STREAMING THE SITUATION NOT LONG AGO. SO THIS IS A SITUATION NOW. SIX PHILADELPHIA POLICE OFFICERS SHOT OR WOUNDED. THE SUSPECT IS STILL FIRING SHOTS AND THEY ARE ASKING THE COMMUNITY, YOU SEE SOME OF THEM RIGHT THERE, TO STAY AS FAR AWAY AS POSSIBLE. >>BACK TO GREG AT THE SCENE WITH SOME INFORMATION ARE US. >>Reporter: GOOD EVENING. WE ARE NOW PAST THREE HOURS FROM WHEN THAT CALL YOU JUST HEARD WENT OUT ACROSS ALL CHANNELS HERE FOR THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT, EVERYONE RUSHING TO THE SCENE AS DISH PATCHERS SAID I NEED LONG GUNS, S.W.A.T. TO THE LOCATION. THE SUSPECT IS BARRICADED. 30 MINUTES AGO FOUR WOMEN WERE BEING ESCORTED BY S.W.A.T. AND THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT. TWO ADULT WOMEN AND TWO YOUNGER WOMEN, OUR PHOTO JOURNALIST WAS ABLE TO CATCH UP WITH THE WOMEN. THEY WERE INSIDE THE HOUSE AT THE TIME. TAKE A LISTEN TO THEIR >>I THANK GOD FOR THESE COPS. THEY ARE GOOD PEOPLE. DON’T SAY NOTHING BAD ABOUT THEM. THEY KEPT US SAFE THE WHOLE TIME. THE WHOLE TIME. THEY KEPT US SAFE. I WAS ON THE SECOND FLOOR. >>Reporter: THEY KEPT US SAFE THE WHOLE TIME IS WHAT THE WOMEN WERE SAYING. THEY WERE INSIDE THE HOME AT THE TIME OF THIS ENTIRE TERRIFYING SITUATION. IMAGINE YOURSELVES IN THAT SITUATION AS MEMBERS OF THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT ENTERED AROUND 4:35 P.M. FOR THAT CALL FOR A WARRANT SERVICE. AN ARREST FOR A WARRANT. THEY WERE ENCOUNTERED BY GUNFIRE. SIX OFFICERS CONFIRMED SHOT WITH NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES. AND WE ARE TOLD BY THERE PHILADELPHIA POLICE MULTIPLE OTHERS WITH NON-GUNSHOT INJURIES BEING TREAT, ALSO NON- LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES. SINCE 4:35 P.M. THERE HAS BEEN BACK AND FORTH BURSTS OF GUNFIRE EVERY 20, 30 MINUTES BETWEEN THE PHILADELPHIA S.W.A.T. DEPARTMENT AND THE SUSPECT WHERE THERE WOMEN WERE INSIDE AS WELL. WE ARE TOLD BY ONE OF THE COMMANDING OFFICERS THAT SUSPECT DOES HAVE SOME TYPE OF RIFLE. THOSE CAN FIRE LONG DISTANCES ACCURATELY AND THAT IS WHY THEY ARE KEEPING US FAR FROM THE SCENE. A VERY ACTIVE SCENE. GOING INTO THREE HOURS OF A BARRICADE SITUATION HERE IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA. STILL AN ACTIVE ONE. THE S.W.A.T. TEAM OUT FRONT WITH THEIR TACTICAL UNITS AND LONG GUNS. HOPEFULLY THIS WILL RESOLVE, HOPEFULLY THE S.W.A.T. TEAM WILL BE ABLE TO ENTER AND HOPEFULLY THEY WILL BE ABLE TO PUT THIS MALE IN HANDCUFFS AND TRANSPORT HIM TO THE POLICE DEPARTMENT FOR QUESTIONING. WE ARE IN A DENSE SECTION OF PHILADELPHIA. THERE ARE BUSINESSES, STORES, HOMES, YOU HEARD FROM THE WOMEN INSIDE THE HOME WHERE THE SUSPECT STARTED FIRING WITH POLICE. RIGHT NOW WE STILL HAVE THE SWAT TEAM TRYING TO END THE SITUATION BEFORE NIGHT FALL. I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW IMPORTANT THAT IS BECAUSE — LET ME PAN TO THE LEFT. YOU CAN SEE A SECOND S.W.A.T. VEHICLE TAKING A POSITION. THE HOME, I AM NOT GOING TO SAY OUR LOCATION, A BLOCK FROM WHERE THE UNIT IS BEING PLACED IN THE INTERSECTION RIGHT HERE. I DON’T KNOW IF THEY ARE GOING TO MAKE ENTRY, I DON’T KNOW IF YOU CAN SEE NOW THE S.W.A.T. VEHICLE IS GOING IN THE DIRECTION OF THAT HOME. THERE ARE MULTIPLE S.W.A.T. MEMBERS. AT LEAST A DOZEN WITH THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT AND MORE THAN 100 OFFICERS HERE ON SCENE AS WELL. I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO GET THE POLICE TO REMOVE HIS WEAPON THAT HE HAS BEEN FIRING ALL AFTERNOON. >>WE UNDERSTAND THE SENSE OF URGENCY TO RESOLVE THIS AS PEACEFULLY AS POSSIBLE. PHILADELPHIA POLICE PUTTING OUT A TWEET SAYING THAT THEY ARE STILL TRYING TO COMMUNICATE WITH THIS SUSPECT AND HERE IS THE TWEET THEY PUT OUT. OFFICERS CONTINUE TO ATTEMPT TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE SUSPECT. THE SUSPECT IS STILL FIRING AT OFFICERS. STAY AWAY FROM THE AREA. SO STILL SUCH A SENSE OF URGENCY. >>I AM CONCERNED ABOUT THE PEOPLE AGAINST THE YELLOW TAPE. THEY ARE CLOSE. THEY ARE NOT FAR FROM THERE S.W.A.T. VEHICLE AT ALL. GREG, AS THE SUN BEGINS TO SET, HAVE YOU SEEN ANY INDICATION OF LIGHT FIXTURES BEING PUT UP AND IF THAT IS THE CASE, I THINK THEY ARE IN THIS FOR THE LONG HAUL. DO YOU SEE ANYTHING AT ALL? >>Reporter: YEAH. IF YOU CAN SEE IN THE DISTANCE THERE, IT APPEARS THAT S.W.A.T. VEHICLE THAT JUST EARNED IT LEFT DOES HAVE A SPOTLIGHT AND THEY ARE PUTTING IT ON THE HOME. WE HAVE BREAKING DETAILS, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. CBS NEWS HAS CONFIRMED THERE ARE TWO OFFICERS STILL INSIDE THE HOME ON THE SECOND FLOOR OF THE HOUSE. WHILE THE SHOOTER IS ON THE FIRST FLOOR. THIS SITUATION IS GOING TO CONTINUE ON UNTIL THOSE OFFICERS ARE BACK SAVED BY THEIR FELLOW BROTHERS AND SISTERS. CBS NEWS, THE INVESTIGATIVE DEPARTMENT AT CBS CONFIRMING TWO POLICE OFFICERS ARE STILL IN THE HOUSE ON THE SECOND FLOOR. SPOTLIGHTS ARE COMING UP AND THIS COULD DRAG ON FOR SOME TIME NOW THAT WE HAVE THIS NEWS CONFIRMED BY CBS. THIS IS GOING TO GO ON. OFFICERS WILL NOT LEAVE THEM UNTIL THE SUSPECT IS REMOVED. NIGHT FALLING HERE AND THIS IS GOING TO GO ON UNTIL THE OFFICERS ARE OUT OF THAT HOUSE. >>MORE AND MORE DISTURBING ELEMENTS UNFOLDING HERE. NOW WE ARE LEARNING TWO OFFICERS ARE STILL INSIDE THAT HOME. YOU KNOW, THE SUSPECT IS ON THE FIRST FLOOR, THEY ARE ON THE SECOND FLOOR, SO YOU CAN SEE WHY THEY ARE TAKING THIS SITUATION MORE SERIOUSLY AND TRYING TO MAKE SURE THEY CAN TALK THIS SUSPECT OUT OF THAT HOUSE AND TALK HIM INTO SURRENDERING PEACEFULLY. >>WE ARE HAVING VIDEO ISSUES WITH GREG. WE WILL GET BACK TO HIM IN A MOMENT. OFFICERS STILL IN THE HOUSE. THE SITUATION CONTINUES TO BE FLUID, CONTINUES TO UNFOLD. >>YEAH. JOE HAS BEEN TRACKING INFORMATION WITH HIS SOURCES AS WELL. WE WILL SEE WHAT HE HAS UNCOVERED. >>THAT IS THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY THERE. AND WE ARE STILL WAITING ON THE COMMISSIONER AND THE MAYOR WHO ARE EXPECTED TO BRIEF THE MEDIA AND GIVE US AN UPDATE AS WELL ON THE OFFICER’S CONDITIONS WHO WERE TAKEN TO TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL. JOE HAS BEEN TALKING TO HIS SOURCES AND HAS INFORMATION AS WELL. >>Reporter: TRYING TO KEEP POSTED ON TIME LINES FOR OUR VIEWERS, UNDERSTANDING WHEN THINGS MAY HAPPEN AND WHEN THINGS MAY OCCUR OUTSIDE TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL. PAT REPORTS ON TWITTER THE PHILADELPHIA MAYOR HAS BEEN TO SEE THE INJURED POLICE OFFICERS AND ON HIS WAY BACK TO TEMPLE. CITY COUNCIL PRESIDENT IS THERE AS WELL. NO STATEMENTS UNTIL THE SCENE IS CLEAR. TEMPLE UNIVERSITY SAYING THE LOCK DOWN AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY’S HEALTH SCIENCES CENTER CAMPUS HAS BEEN LIFTED. THAT IS SOME LIMITED GOOD NEWS THAT SOME PARTS OF THOSE AREAS OF NORTH PHILADELPHIA MAY BE RESUMING NORMAL BUSINESS. I UNDERSTAND THAT WE LOST GREG BUT LISTENING TO WHAT GREG WAS PASSING ALONG ABOUT THE CONCERN, THE POSTURE, THE DEFENSIVE POSTURE AND THE CBS NEWS INFORMATION REPORTING THAT THERE ARE TWO OFFICERS ALSO IN THAT BARRICADED DWELLING TRYING TO GET THIS SUSPECT OUT OF THERE. SO MUCH GOING ON THERE. BUT THE DARKNESS IS OF CONCERN BECAUSE IT IS A TAX ON POLICE RESOURCES AND THE INFORMATION ABOUT THE SOCIAL LIVE STREAMING. IT IS UNCLEAR IF POLICE GOT A HANDLE ON THAT BUT THE DYNAMIC THAT THE SUSPECT WAS LIVE STREAMING HIS ACTIVITIES WHILE DOING GUN BATTLE WITH THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT IS VERY ALARMING TO INVESTIGATORS. YOU CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT THE WAR ROOM LOOKS LIKE TONIGHT AS POLICE ARE TRYING TO MAP OUT HOW THEY ARE GOING TO TRY AND BRING THIS TO A RESOLUTION KNOWING THERE ARE SIX SHOT PHILADELPHIA POLICE OFFICERS IN HOSPITALS ACROSS NORTH PHILADELPHIA TONIGHT AND TO ADD TO THAT OTHER OFFICERS WHO SUSTAINED A VARIETY OF MINOR INJURIES. OVER THE COURSE OF THE LAST FEW HOURS WE HEARD ACTIVE GUNFIRE BEING EXCHANGED BETWEEN THE SUSPECT AND THE S.W.A.T. DEPARTMENT. THIS WAS AN EXCHANGE OF GUN BATTLE WITH POLICE. THE SHOOTER WAS ARMED WITH A RIFLE. ALL OF THAT TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION AND WHAT POLICE ARE DEALING WITH RIGHT NOW, WE CAN UNDERSTAND WHY THERE WILL BE NO STATEMENTS UNTIL THERE IS SOME RESOLUTION TO THE SITUATION UNFOLDING THERE IN THAT SECTION OF THE CITY. AND TO TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AGAIN, IT SEEMS TO BE WHERE PHILADELPHIA POLICE ARE DIRECTING THE INFORMATION, AT LEAST ON TWITTER, THE LATEST TWEET A MINUTE AGO FROM THE SERGEANT APPEARS TO DEAL WITH PARENTS AND GUARDIAN OF CHILDREN FROM THE LEARNING CENTER ON ERIE AVENUE. YOUR CHILDREN CAN BE PICKED UP FROM 3643 GERMANTOWN AVENUE ON THE BUS OUT FRONT. I HOPE OUR WEB TEAM IS LISTENING. CHILDREN CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS WITH THE LOCK DOWN, THERE IS INFORMATION FROM THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT ABOUT HOW YOU CAN BE REUNITED WITH YOUR CHILDREN. THINK ABOUT THAT FOR A MINUTE. THAT PARENTS WERE UNABLE TO SEE THEIR CHILDREN WHILE THIS PLAYED OUT. THERE IS SO MUCH TO UNPACK TONIGHT IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA. AND WE REPORTED A HALF HOUR AGO THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN BRIEFED ON THE EVENTS AND WE ARE KEEPING A AN EYE ON HIS TWITTER ACCOUNT TO SEE IF THERE ARE UPDATES. THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE CENTER IS WHERE THE JUSTICES AND THE JUDGES SIT FOR TWO COURTS IN OUR CITY AND COUNTY. THE COURT OF COMMON PLEAS AND MUNICIPAL COURT, ALL OF THE DOCUMENTS, THE WARRANTS, ALL OF THE ACTIONS AND ACTIVITIES THAT ARE LAWFULLY EXECUTED IN THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA ARE SIGNED BY JUDGES AND/OR JUSTICES. IT HAS BEEN VERY QUIET HERE TONIGHT. THINGS ARE DONE ELECTRONICALLY BUT IT HAS BEEN QUIET WHERE I HAVE BEEN FOR THE LONGEST TIME. AND WE JUST SET UP SHOP HERE BECAUSE IT WAS THE EASY WAY TO GET IN TOUCH WIBSTH O N BILL, T FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA. THERE HAS BEEN NO TWITTER PRESENCE FROM HIM TONIGHT BUT HE HAS MADE IT KNOWN HE IS A GOOD PARTNER FIGHTING CRIME WITH THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT IN MAKING SURE THAT THEY HAVE A GOOD WORKING RELATIONSHIP. SO WE ARE TRYING TO PASS ALONG AS MUCH INFORMATION AS POSSIBLE BUT THE NUMBER STANDS AT SIX PHILADELPHIA POLICE OFFICERS WOUNDED, NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES AND A HANDFUL OF OTHER OFFICERS WHO SUSTAINED INJURIES WHILE DOING THEIR JOBS OUT THERE TONIGHT. THAT IS THE LATEST FROM HERE. BACK TO YOU IN THE STUDIO. >>WE SAW THE U.S. ATTORNEY EARLIER AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL. WE SAW HIM THROUGHOUT WITH OTHER POLICE OFFICERS. WE KNOW THAT HIS PRESENCE IS THERE. WE SAW THE FOP PRESIDENT THERE AND OTHER POLICE OFFICERS AND FAMILY MEMBERS THERE TO CHECK ON THEIR LOVED ONES. BROTHER WILL BE SEEN ON THE CW PHILLY AT 8:00 P.M. WE WILL STAY WITH US. A PROGRAMMING NOTE. BIG BROTHER WILL BE SEEN AT 8:00 P.M. ON THE CW PHILLY. LET’S BRING YOU UP TO DATE, COMING UP ON 8:00 P.M. HERE ON THE EAST COAST IN PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, WATCHING LIVE COVERAGE ON CBS 3 OF A TENSE AND VERY ACTIVE SITUATION. GUNFIRE IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA FOLLOWING A WARRANT SERVICE BY THE PHILADELPHIA NARCOTICS DEPARTMENT. GUNFIRE AROUND 4:35 P.M. EASTERN TIME. A MASSIVE POLICE PRESENCE, SIX PHILADELPHIA POLICE OFFICERS WOUNDED. ALL NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES. THE GUNMAN IS HOLD UP DOWN THAT STREET. YOU ARE LOOKING LIVE. VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO PASS ALONG FOR PARENTS AT THIS POINT. WE KNOW LOTS OF BUSINESSES, THE DAY CARE HAS BEEN EFFECTED. LET’S SEE THE LATEST WHAT IS HAPPENING OUT THERE. >>Reporter: WE HAVE BEEN TOLD THE DAY CARE HAS DOZENS OF CHILDREN INSIDE OF IT. IT WAS IN OPERATION ALL DAY TODAY FEET AWAY FROM THE LOCATION WHERE THE SUSPECT WAS FIRING FROM. WE HAVE LEARNED THE CHILDREN HAVE BEEN TAKEN OUT OF THE DAY CARE AND THEY ARE IN A SAFE PLACE RIGHT NOW. NO LONGER AT THE SCENE. WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW, WE ARE IN A POSITION WHERE WE HAVE A VIEW OF THE TACTICAL UNITS WHERE THEY ARE STATIONED BECAUSE THEY HAVE ACCESS TO THE HOME. I DON’T WANT TO DESCRIBE WHERE THEY ARE BUT IT IS A PLACE THAT IS SERVING AS AN ECHO CHAMBER. 15 MINUTES AGO WE HEARD LOUDBANGS. RESIDENTS ARE ORDERED TO STAY BACK. ON THE OTHER SIDE OF ME THERE IS 100 PEOPLE OUT THERE WITH THEIR EYES GLUED EAST TO BROAD STREET. I WILL SAY THERE WAS A STRANGE SILENCE TO ALL OF IT. THE ONLY THING YOU COULD HEAR WERE THE CHOPPERS OVER HEAD. AT THIS TIME IS JUST A POLICE CHOPPER. WE SAW A DRONE AS WELL. IT IS UNCLEAR WHO THAT BELONGED TO. HOPEFULLYTHAT WAS THE POLICE. I WAS SPEAKING TO A WOMAN WHO TOLD ME HER AUNT IS BARRICADED INSIDE OF HER HOUSE AND WE TALKED TO ANOTHER WOMAN WHO SAID SHE HAD JUST COME BACK TO THE AREA AND SHE IS DEVASTATED. >>HOW DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON HERE TODAY? >>IT IS UNSAFE. IT IS JUST THE HOOD. THIS IS WHAT WE LIVE WITH EVERY DAY. >>Reporter: I THINK SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN TOUGH FOR RESIDENTS, WE HAVE BEEN ON THE GROUND TALKING TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN OUT HERE ALL DAY. THERE IS A CROWD OVER HERE WATCHING EVERYTHING UNFOLD. I THINK WHAT HAS BEEN FRIGHTENING, PEOPLE WOULD JUMP, BACK UP, LOOK AROUND. AND NOW AFTER THREE HOURS IT HAS BECOME A SITUATION WHERE PEOPLE ARE IMMUNE TO THIS. IT HAS BEEN A TOUGH SITUATION FOR RESIDENTS. WE TALKED TO ONE VETERAN WHO SAID THIS WAS REMINISCENT OF A WAR ZONE. IT WILL BE TOUGH TO COMPREHEND. SOMETHING THAT MANY PEOPLE WANT TO WRAP UP. AGAIN WITH DARKNESS APPROACHING, THAT IS SOMETHING THAT HAS TO BE DONE. BACK TO YOU IN THE STUDIO. >>THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THAT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. LET’S CHECK IN WITH GREG. YOU HAVE NEW INFORMATION? >>Reporter: CBS NEWS CONFIRMED THERE ARE TWO STRIKE FORCE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENTS IN BICYCLE UNIFORMS INSIDE THE HOUSE. ONE OFFICER HAS ONE PRISONER. THE SECOND HAS TWO PRISONERS ON THE SECOND FLOOR AND THE CONDITION OF BOTH OF THOSE STRIKE FORCE OFFICERS IS NOT KNOWN AT THIS TIME. THAT IS WHY THERE IS STILL THIS VERY ACTIVE SCENE. THE S.W.A.T. TEAM OUT FRONT. CBS SOURCES CONFIRM TWO BICYCLE UNIFORMED STRIKE FORCE PHILADELPHIA POLICE OFFICERS ARE INSIDE THAT HOME. THERE ARE THREE TOTAL PRISONERS. ONE OFFICER HAS ONE. THE SECOND HAS TWO PRISONERS. IN THAT HOME. THE CONDITION OF THOSE TWO OFFICERS IS NOT KNOWN AT THIS TIME. SUN IS SETTING HERE IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA AND THIS IS WHERE THE ACTION WILL TAKE PLACE THROUGHOUT THE EVENING AS PHILADELPHIA S.W.A.T. AND THE DOZENS OF HUNDREDS OF OFFICERS HERE NEED TO ENTER THAT BUILDING. GET THEIR OFFICERS AND THOSE PRISONERS OUT AND STILL THERE IS POTENTIALLY ONE SHOOTER INSIDE THE HOUSE WHO NEEDS TO BE NEUTRALIZED. THIS >>THOSE OFFICERS’ CONDITIONS ARE NOT KNOWN AT THIS MOMENT. >>AGAIN, TWO BICYCLE TASK OFFICERS APPREHENDED THREE TOTAL PRISONERS STILL INSIDE THE HOME AND THEY ARE ON THE SECOND FLOOR WE UNDERSTAND AND THE SUSPECT IS ON THE FIRST FLOOR, IS THAT CORRECT? >>CORRECT. GOING TO THE LAYOUT SPECIFICALLY OF THIS HOUSE, THERE IS ONE APARTMENT ON THE FIRST FLOOR AND THE SECOND FLOOR IS CONNECTED, IF IT IS A SINGLE FAMILY, REGARDLESS OF EITHER OF THE SITUATIONS, WE HAVE CONFIRMED THERE ARE TWO OFFICERS ON THE SECOND FLOOR WITH THREE PRISONERS AND ONE SUSPECT ON THE FIRST FLOOR, THE SUSPECT WITH A LONG RIFLE AND THE COMMANDING OFFICER, WE WILL TOSSED A RICHARD ROSS RIGHT NOW, THE POLICE COMMISSIONER. >>I CAME OVER HERE, WE WERE AT THE SCENE AT 4:30 TODAY, OFFICER SERVING A NARCOTICS WANT ON A HOUSE AT THE 3600 BLOCK OF NORTH 15th STREET. THEY HAD ALREADY ENTERED THE PREMISES, GOT TO THE REAR KITCHEN AREA WHEN GUNFIRE ERUPTED. THE SHOOTER FIRED MULTIPLE ROUNDS, OFFICERS RETURNED FIRE, MANY OF WHOM HAD TO ESCAPE THROUGH WINDOWS AND DOORS TO ESCAPE THE BARRAGE OF WORDS. RIGHT NOW, WE CAN TELL YOU THERE ARE SIX POLICE OFFICERS STRUCK BY GUNFIRE. THANKFULLY, ALL OF THEM IN STABLE CONDITION. THEY WERE STRUCK THROUGHOUT THEIR BODY, ONE OFFICER SUSTAINED A GUNSHOT WOUND, IT GRAZED HIS HEAD. AND OFFICER SHOT IN THE ARMS AND OF VARIOUS PARTS OF THEIR BODY. FORTUNATELY, EVERYBODY IS GOING TO BE OKAY. WE HAVE THREE HERE, THREE AT EINSTEIN, A COUPLE INJURED RESPONDING TO THE SCENE. I WILL TELL YOU HAVING BEEN AT THAT SCENE THE LAST COUPLE HOURS, TRYING TO TALK TO THIS MAN, HE CONTINUES TO FIRE ROUNDS OUT OF THE WINDOW, THIS SITUATION IS IN NO WAY RESOLVED, I WANTED TO GIVE YOU AN UPDATE, LET YOU KNOW WHERE WE ARE BUT WE ARE TRYING TO TALK TO THIS MALE, LET HIM KNOW HE CAN INTO THIS PEACEFULLY NOW, WE CALLED HIM MULTIPLE TIMES, HE HAS PICKED UP THE PHONE A COUPLE TIMES BUT HE IS NOT ANSWERING AT THE MOMENT, WE ARE TRYING TO WORK WITH FAMILY MEMBERS BUT RIGHT NOW WE HAVE NOT BEEN SUCCESSFUL, DESPITE SEVERAL ATTEMPTS TO TALK TO HIM, BOTH ON THE LOUDSPEAKER, THE BULLHORN AND TELEPHONE, WE HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO MAKE CONTACT SO FAR. WE ARE TRYING TO GET HIM TO COME OUT PEACEFULLY BUT RIGHT NOW HE REFUSES TO DO SO. I HAVE TO GET BACK OVER TO THE SCENE. I WILL ANSWER A FEW BRIEF QUESTIONS AND THE MAYOR MIGHT HAVE SOME, AND OTHERS MIGHT HAVE COMMENTS. RIGHT NOW, I HAVE TO GET BACK OVER BECAUSE THE CRITICAL THING TO TELL YOU I DID NOT TELL YOU IS I HAVE SOME SITUATIONS I’M WORRIED ABOUT POTENTIAL HOSTAGE SITUATIONS, WE HAVE TO GET THAT RESOLVED. >>Reporter: CAN YOU TELL US HOW THE TWO OFFICERS INSIDE ARE DOING? GIVE US INSIGHT INTO THE ROLE BEING. >>WE BELIEVE THEY ARE OKAY, I WILL NOT SAY MORE ABOUT THAT RIGHT NOW. I’M CONCERNED FOR THEIR SAFETY RIGHT NOW. WE BELIEVE THIS MALE IS IN A CERTAIN PART OF THE BUILDING, I WILL NOT SAY WHERE HE IS RIGHT NOW OR WHERE THEY ARE SO I DON’T ENDANGER THE OFFICERS ON THE SCENE IN ANY WAY, IT IS A VERY VOLATILE SITUATION STILL UNFOLDING AS A RESULT, THERE IS SO MUCH I CAN TELL YOU ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON INSIDE THAT PROPERTY, SAVE FOR THE FACT EVEN WHEN I WAS ON SCENE, HE FIRED MULTIPLE ROUNDS, MANY OF WHICH STRUCK THE S.W.A.T. TRUCK AND BUILDINGS ACROSS THE STREET, THAT IS LONG AFTER I GOT THERE, HE HAS CONTINUED TO FIRE, IT IS OF GRAVE CONCERN TO US BUT WE ARE TRYING TO COMMUNICATE TO HIM WE WANT THEM OUT SAFELY, EVEN AS GOING FAR AS TELLING HIM THE OFFICERS WILL BE OKAY AND THERE’S NOTHING WE CAN’T WORK THROUGH RIGHT NOW. RIGHT NOW WE ARE NOT SUCCESSFUL. I WILL GET BACK OVER THERE AND ANSWER A FEW QUESTIONS THEN I HAVE TO GET BACK. >>Reporter: HAVE YOU NOTIFIED THE OFFICERS’ FAMILY? >>I JUST WENT IN, I DID NOT GET A CHANCE BECAUSE OF PROXIMITY, I WILL GET UP TO EINSTEIN’S LATER. EVERYBODY WILL BE OKAY, I SPOKE TO ALL THREE THAT ARE HERE. THEY ARE ALL IN GOOD SPIRITS. WE WERE CONCERNED ABOUT THIS SITUATION. >>Reporter: DO YOU THINK THERE IS JUST ONE SHOOTER? >>RIGHT NOW WE ARE NOT SURE. I DON’T WANT TO SAY THAT AND BE WRONG, FROM A TECHNICAL STANDPOINT TO MAKE THAT ASSUMPTION. >>Reporter: ARE THERE PEOPLE IN CUSTODY? >>THERE WERE PEOPLE TAKEN INTO CUSTODY INITIALLY AND THERE MAY BE SOME IN CUSTODY. RIGHT NOW, WHAT WE KNOW IS THIS MALE IS HOLED UP INSIDE AND HE HAS NOT, SINCE I HAVE COME HERE IN THE LAST 20 MINUTES, THERE’S NO INDICATION HE IS TRYING TO SURRENDER RIGHT NOW, WE KNOW HE IS STILL ALIVE, NO QUESTION ABOUT THAT BECAUSE OF THE SHOTS RINGING OUT. WE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD, OUR POLICE OFFICERS. AGAIN, WE ARE DOING EVERYTHING WITHIN OUR POWER TO GET HIM TO COME OUT. >>Reporter: COMMISSIONER, YOU HAVE BEEN IN TOUCH WITH HIS FAMILY, WHAT ARE THEY SAYING? >>WE ARE TRYING TO DO AS MUCH AS WE CAN RIGHT NOW TO RESOLVE THIS PEACEFULLY. WITHOUT GETTING INTO ALL OF THAT AT THIS POINT, WE ARE TRYING TO USE AND LEVERAGE EVERYTHING POSSIBLE. MULTIPLE ATTEMPTS TO TALK TO HIM BY MYSELF AND OTHERS TRYING TO ASSURE HIM I’M OUT FRONT, THE HIGHEST ASSURANCE WILL NOT BE HARMED WHEN HE COMES OUT. NORMALLY, I WOULD NOT TAKE THIS POSITION WHEN I HAVE OFFICERS IN THIS POSITION. I HAVE TO GET BACK OVER. >>Reporter: YOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK TO THE SIX OFFICERS, THEY ARE IN GOOD SPIRITS, IT WAS A TRAUMATIC EXPERIENCE TO THEM. I WAS TALKING TO ONE OF THE OFFICERS WITH THE GRAZING WOUND TO THE HEAD, HAD A COUPLE BOYS, 8 TO 10 YEARS OLD, KEPT THINKING ABOUT HOW THEIR LIVES WOULD’VE CHANGED WITH A LITTLE DIFFERENCE OF SPACE. OUR CONCERN RIGHT NOW IS FOR THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES. WE WILL SORT OUT THE OTHER STUFF ONCE THE SCENE IS RESOLVED OVER WHERE THE SHOOTING TOOK PLACE AND WE ARE THANKFUL, A LITTLE ANGRY ABOUT SOMEONE HAVING ALL THAT WEAPONRY AND ALL THAT FIREPOWER BUT WE WILL GET TO THAT ANOTHER DAY. IT IS ALL ABOUT THE OFFICERS AND THEIR FAMILIES RIGHT NOW AND GOD BLESS THEM AND GOD SAVE THE MALL. THANK YOU. >>YOU HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO A LIVE NEWS CONFERENCE AT THE HOSPITAL WITH PHILADELPHIA COMMISSIONER, RICHARD ROSS. MAYOR JIM KENNEY SAYING HE HAS SPOKEN TO THE OFFICERS, ESPECIALLY THE ONE THAT RECEIVED THE GRAZED WOUND TO THE HEAD, SAYING HIS SONS WERE THERE AND HOW DRAMATICALLY THEIR LIVES WOULD HAVE CHANGED IF SOMETHING DIFFERENT HAD HAPPENED. BUT THEY ARE ALL OKAY. AS THE COMMISSIONER WAS SAYING, THERE’S NO INDICATION THE PERSON IN THE ROW HOME IS ABOUT TO GIVE UP. >>HE SAID SPECIFICALLY THE SITUATION IS NO WAY RESOLVED, I HAVE TO GET BACK TO MY PEOPLE. HE IS GOING BACK TO THE SCENE, THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS AND VOLATILE SITUATION FOR THE POLICE OFFICERS AT THE SCENE AND FOR THIS COMMUNITY AS NIGHT FALLS. HE SAID THIS SUSPECT IS FIRING AT POLICE, THEY FIRED AT POLICE WHILE THE COMMISSIONER WAS OUT THERE HITTING A S.W.A.T. TRUCK AND OTHER BUILDINGS IN THAT AREA. THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT A SITUATION UNDER CONTROL AT THIS POINT. AGAIN, JUST TO RECAP, OFFICERS SERVING AN ARCTIC’S WANT AT ABOUT 4:30 THIS AFTERNOON, THEY ENTERED THE UNIT FROM WHAT THE COMMISSIONER IS SAYING, SOME OF THE OFFICERS HAD TO RUN FROM GUNFIRE AFTER THE SUSPECT BEGAN FIRING AT THEM AND THEY WERE ABLE TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE. SIX OFFICERS STRUCK BY GUNFIRE ALL IN STABLE CONDITION, STRUCK IN VARIOUS PARTS OF THEIR BODY ACCORDING TO THE COMMISSIONER. THREE TEMPLE AND ONE EINSTEIN. THE SUSPECT CONTINUES TO FIRE AT OFFICERS, THAT IS WHY THIS IS SUCH GREAT CONCERN TO THE POLICE COMMISSIONER AND THE MAYOR. HE HAS TO GET BACK TO HIS PEOPLE AND THE COMMUNITY ND THE SCENE. THEY WANT TO GET IT RESOLVED AS QUICKLY AND PEACEFULLY AS POSSIBLE. >>HE SAID THEY ARE TALKING TO A SINGLE MALE. HE DID NOT WANT TO SAY IF THERE WAS ANOTHER SHOOTER. THEY HAVE CALLED THE SINGLE MALE MULTIPLE TIMES AND HE HAS NOT ANSWERED RECENTLY. LET’S CHECK IN, GO BACK OUT INTO THE FIELD AND CHECK IN, JOE HOLDEN, GOING TO JOE NOW. >>Reporter: YES. LISTENING TO COMMISSIONER ROSS, WE HAVE WORKED WITH HIM FOR YEARS, YOU KNOW HE WANTS HIS HANDS IN THE OPERATIONS AND THE NUANCES OF THESE INVESTIGATIONS AND TO HEAR HE IS PERSONALLY NEGOTIATING WITH THE MAN ON THE OTHER END OF THAT PHONE IS THE COMMISSIONER I’VE COME TO KNOW. INFORMATION HE HAS REVEALED AND THE TIMELINE, SO CANDID. HE HAS PRESENTED AT 4:30 THIS AFTERNOON, IT WAS A CALL AFTER THAT WARRANT SERVICE AND FROM THERE, THE OFFICER ENTERED AND WERE INSIDE THE REAR OF THE STRUCTURE IN THE KITCHEN AREA WHERE THE SUSPECT STARTED SHOOTING. POLICE EXCHANGED GUNFIRE AND WHILE TRYING TO ESCAPE AS YOU HAVE MENTIONED, THROUGH WINDOWS AND DOORS TO GET TO SAFETY, SIX WERE HIT IN THE PROCESS. THE BIGGEST EMPHASIS THOUGH, I PUSHED THIS OUT AND I THINK IT BEARS REPEATING NUMEROUS TIMES, THE COMMISSIONER SAYS EVERYONE IS GOING TO BE OKAY. WE CAN ONLY CROSS OUR FINGERS AND PRAY THAT WILL BE THE RESOUNDING STATEMENT FROM HERE ON OUT FOR THE REST OF THE NIGHT. SO, DUSK IS UPON US RIGHT NOW, IT IS 8:08 PM, WE ARE ABOUT THREE HOURS AND 38 MINUTES INTO THIS CHAOS AND POLICE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT A LINE OF STORMS TRACKING IN FROM THE WEST . I UNDERSTAND CHIEF METEOROLOGIST, KATE BY LOW WILL BE JOINING US TO GIVE US A TIMELINE ON WHEN POLICE MIGHT BE DEALING WITH ANOTHER PIECE OF THIS JIGSAW PUZZLE. >>THANKS. IT DOES LOOK LIKE A LINE OF STORMS WILL BE MOVING IN HERE WITHIN THE NEXT HALF HOUR. WE DON’T HAVE SEVERE WEATHER BUT THERE HAVE BEEN REPORTS OF LIGHTNING AND HEAVY RAIN WHICH COULD PUT A DAMPER ON THINGS OR DELAY THE PROCESS POLICE ARE GOING THROUGH IN THIS ACTIVE SITUATION RIGHT NOW. LET’S LOOK AT ACTIVE RADAR ON STORM SCAN THREE, I WANT TO UPDATE YOU ON THE LATEST WITH THE LINE OF STORMS MOVING IN. THEREFORE TO THE WEST, NOTHING IMMINENT MOVING INTO THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA. YOU CAN SEE ALIGNED GRADUALLY PUSHING SOUTH AND EAST ACROSS PORTIONS OF BUCKS AND MONTGOMERY COUNTIES. WITH A LITTLE RAIN, A FEW LIGHTNING REPORTS IN THESE AREAS. THIS IS FAR AWAY, I PUT A LOCATOR ON THE MAP SO YOU CAN SEE THE AREA WE ARE DEALING WITH IN NORTH OF PHILADELPHIA AROUND THE YOGA SECTION OF THE CITY, WHERE THE GLEAMING RED BOXES, STORMS WELL NORTH AND WEST, THAT IS SOMETHING POLICE WILL KEEP AN EYE ON AND WE WILL KEEP YOU POSTED IF THE STORMS MOVE A LITTLE BIT CLOSER TO YOUR AREA OR THIS ACTIVE SCENE IN THE CITY. BACK TO UKEE AND NATOSHA AT THE NEWS DESK. >> IT IS JUST AFTER 7:00, THESE ARE THE CONDITIONS THE POLICE ARE WORKING ON RIGHT NOW, THAT IS THE SCENE FROM CHOPPER 3, SUN SET, ALMOST UNDER THE COVER OF DARKNESS, THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT TRYING TO APPREHEND THE SUSPECT IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA. THIS LOOKS A LITTLE LIGHTER, YOU CAN SEE WHAT IS GOING ON, YOU CAN SEE THE PUBLIC WITH THEIR PHONES OUT IN THIS DAY IN AGE IN SOCIAL MEDIA, THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS. THE POLICE ARE KEEPING THEM BACK AS FAR AS THEY CAN FROM THE SITUATION IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA. >>THE POLICE SAY THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION, THE SUSPECT IS IN NO WAY OF LOOKING LIKE HE WILL SURRENDER ANYTIME SOON. STILL FIRING AT POLICE, UP TO 25 MINUTES AGO. THIS IS A VERY ACTIVE SCENE, VOLATILE SCENE PLAYING OUT. THE POLICE COMMISSIONER STRESSING HE IS WORRIED ABOUT POTENTIAL HOSTAGE SITUATION BECAUSE THE SUSPECT IS IN THIS HOUSE AS WELL AS TWO BICYCLE STRIKEFORCE OFFICERS WE UNDERSTAND ACCORDING TO CBS NEWS. THEY HAVE THREE TOTAL PRISONERS THEY APPREHENDED AS WELL, THERE ARE SIX PEOPLE INSIDE THIS HOME AT THIS POINT. VARIOUS POINTS OF THE HOUSE, FIRST FLOOR, SECOND FLOOR, NOT EXACTLY SURE WHERE EVERYONE IS BUT THERE ARE A NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN THAT HOUSE INCLUDING THE SUSPECT. THEY’RE TRYING TO GET IN TOUCH WITH HIM VIA THE PHONE, BULLHORN, THEY ARE ON THE SCENE, STILL IN NO WAY IS THERE ANY INDICATION HE IS TRYING TO SURRENDER TO POLICE PEACEFULLY. >>FOUR PEOPLE RESCUED FROM THIS HOME AND OBVIOUSLY FRIGHTENED, VERY SHOOK UP, VERY CONCERNED AND VERY SCARED. THEY ARE SAFE AND THIS STANDOFF CONTINUES UNDER THE COVER OF DARKNESS. WE SAW A S.W.A.T. VEHICLE WITH A SPOTLIGHT ON IT POINTING PROBABLY AT THAT HOUSE. WE CANNOT SEE IT FROM HERE BECAUSE IT IS 2 TO 3 BLOCKS DOWN THE STREET. THEY ARE ON THE SITUATION AND THEY ONCE AGAIN WILL TRY TO SOLVE THIS PEACEFULLY AND IT WILL TAKE AS LONG AS IT TAKES. THE COMMISSIONER HAD TO LEAVE THE PRESS CONFERENCE BECAUSE HE HAD TO GET BACK TO HIS PEOPLE. SIMPLE AS THAT, GET BACK TO HIS PEOPLE TO MAKE SURE NO ONE ELSE GETS HURT. >>THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT HE SAID, I VE TO WRAP THIS UP, GET BACK WITH MY PEOPLE, BE WITH MY PEOPLE, HE WAS AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, THREE OF THE OFFICERS TAKEN THERE, THREE OTHERS THAT EINSTEIN HOSPITAL, OFF, ALL ARE STABLE, FAMILY MEMBERS RUSHED TO BE WITH THEM, WE SEE THEM SCURRYING INTO THE HOSPITALS THROUGHOUT THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING. WE KNOW THEY ARE BEING MONITORED AT THIS POINT BY DOCTORS AND THEIR FAMILY HOLDING VIGIL FOR THEM AS WELL MAKING SURE THEY ARE OKAY. THE COMMISSIONER STRESSING THIS SITUATION IS IN NO WAY RESOLVED, NEARLY 4 HOURS AFTER IT ALL TRANSPIRED AT 4:38 THIS AFTERNOON. >>COMING UP AT 8:15, WE HAVE TO GIVE UP PROGRAM REMINDER, BIG BROTHER WILL BE SEEN ON THE CW PHILLY, OUR SISTER STATION. AS WE CONTINUE LIVE COVERAGE, SIX PHILADELPHIA POLICE OFFICERS SHOT, ALL DOING OKAY. CBS NEWS CONFIRMING TWO OFFICERS STILL INSIDE THE HOME. WE ARE WAITING FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON IN THAT HOME AND WE HAVE NO IDEA HOW LONG THIS IS GOING TO TAKE AND WE DON’T EXPECT TO HAVE ANY IDEA UNTIL IT HAPPENS AND IT WILL HAPPEN LIVE IN FRONT OF YOU. >>THIS IS ANOTHER CONCERN WE ARE TALKING ABOUT, THE GROWING CROWD AT THE SCENE DESPITE THE FACT POLICE ARE URGING PEOPLE TO PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THE AREA. PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THIS AREA AND IMPEDE THIS INVESTIGATION AND NEGOTIATION UNDERWAY WITH THE SUSPECT INSIDE. YOU ARE STILL SEEING THE CROWD OF PEOPLE GATHERING TO TAKE THIS ALL IN OR OBSERVE WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THAT NEIGHBORHOOD. IT IS STILL A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION FOR THEM AS WELL. >>MAYBE IF YOU ARE IN THAT NEIGHBORHOOD OR THAT PARTICULAR BLOCK WHERE ALL OF THAT IS GOING ON, YOU SEE THE ROW HOMES ON THE RIGHT AND LEFT, STAY AWAY FROM THE WINDOWS. AND SIT UNTIL THERE IS THE ALL CLEAR SIGN. THAT DOES NOT SEEM TO BE HAPPENING ANYTIME SOON. LET’S GET BACK DOWN TO THE SCENE AND CHECK IN WITH GREG ARGOS WITH THE LATEST INFORMATION. >>Reporter: GOOD EVENING. AS THE COMMISSIONER JUST MENTIONED A FEW MINUTES AGO, THERE IS ONE MAN HOLED UP INSIDE THE HOME WITH NO INDICATION HE IS TRYING TO SURRENDER. OFFICERS HAVE MADE CONTACT THE COMMISSIONER SAYS, WITH THE SHOOTER. HE PICKED UP THE PHONE MULTIPLE TIMES BUT HAS NOT SPOKEN WITH NEGOTIATORS HERE. WE ARE IN THE NORTH PHILLY SECTION, THAT TIOGA SECTION OF PHILADELPHIA WHERE TWO OFFICERS ACCORDING TO CBS NEWS ARE STILL IN THAT HOME. FORTUNATELY, THE SIX THAT WERE SHOT ACCORDING TO THE COMMISSIONER HAVE NON-LIFE- THREATENING INJURIES. THREE OFFICERS WERE RUSHED THIS AFTERNOON AROUND 4:35 TO TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, THREE OTHERS RUSHED TO EINSTEIN, A TOTAL OF SIX WITH GUNSHOT WOUNDS. ONCE AGAIN, THE IMPORTANT PIECE OF INFORMATION TONIGHT IS NONE OF THE SIX HAVE LIFE- THREATENING INJURIES AT THIS MOMENT. NOW, I WANT TO BACKTRACK A LITTLE BIT TO WHEN THIS ALL HAPPENED, THE COMMISSIONER TELLING US THIS WAS A CALL FOR A WANT ARREST, OFFICERS ENTERING THE HOME IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA. THAT ENTERED THE HOME, WENT TO THE REAR OF THE HOUSE WHERE THE KITCHEN IS LOCATED AND THAT IS WHERE THEY ENCOUNTERED THAT SUSPECT WHO OPENED FIRE. THE COMMISSIONER SAYING OFFICERS TRY TO LEAVE THE LINE OF FIRE ANYWAY THEY COULD, SOME RUNNING OUT OF THE DOOR THEY CAME FROM, OTHERS JUMPING WINDOWS. WHEN ALL WAS SAID AND DONE, SIX OFFICERS WERE SHOT. ONCE AGAIN, CBS NEWS SOURCES CONFIRMING THERE ARE TWO OFFICERS AND POSSIBLY SOME PRISONERS INSIDE AS WELL AS A SUSPECT INSIDE THE HOUSE AT THIS TIME. THAT IS WHY THIS IS STILL A VERY ACTIVE SCENE AS THE SUN HAS SET HERE IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA. WITHOUT THAT SUN, THE S.W.A.T. TEAM CAN BRING OUT THE SPOTLIGHT, EVEN WITH THAT, IT MAKES THIS INVESTIGATION AND THE SCENE MUCH MORE DIFFICULT TO CONTAIN. I WILL STEP OUT OF THE WAY AND SHOW YOU WHAT WE HAVE HERE. WE ARE NOT GIVING THE EXACT LOCATION OF COURSE, BUT A VERY LARGE GROUP OF FOLKS FROM THIS NEIGHBORHOOD HAVE GATHERED, BASICALLY GOING PAST POLICE TAPE, INCHING FORWARD. THIS IS STILL AN ACTIVE SCENE. THE COMMISSIONER BASICALLY SAYING ONCE AGAIN, THIS MAN IS HOLED UP INSIDE AND THERE IS NO INDICATION HE IS TRYING TO SURRENDER. YOU HAVE AT LEAST 100 PEOPLE FROM THIS NEIGHBORHOOD INCHING CLOSER AND CLOSER TO WHERE THE PHILADELPHIA S.W.A.T. TEAM IS LOCATED AND THAT IS SIMPLY QUITE FRANKLY, A DANGEROUS THING TO DO BUT THAT IS WHAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. IF THERE’S ANY SILVER LINING IN ANY OF THIS, I WANT TO REITERATE THE SIX OFFICERS INJURED IN THE LINE OF DUTY TODAY HAVE NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES. THE COMMISSIONER SAID ONE OF THE OFFICERS SUFFERED A GUNSHOT WOUND THAT GRAZED HIS HEAD, HOW FORTUNATE IT WAS IT JUST GRAZED HIS HEAD. ALL SIX RUSHED TO TRAUMA CENTERS IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA, THOSE OF FOLKS EXPECTED TO MAKE A FULL RECOVERY WHICH IS GREAT NEWS TONIGHT AS POLICE, THE PHILADELPHIA S.W.A.T. TEAM AND COUNTLESS OFFICERS CONTINUE TO ENGAGE, TRYING TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE SUSPECT, THE COMMISSIONER SAYS ONCE AGAIN HAS NO INDICATION, NO DESIRE TO SURRENDER. >>THANK YOU, ANOTHER TWEET WENT OUT FROM THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE. THEY SAID AS HE MENTIONED, OFFICERS CONTINUED TO IMPLORE THE SUSPECT THAT SURRENDER AND THEY SAID THIS CAN END WITHOUT FURTHER VIOLENCE, CONTINUE TO AVOID THE AREA, CONTINUE TO AVOID THE AREA. I DO BELIEVE A LITTLE EARLIER, WE PLAYED THE 911 CALL. I WANT TO ASK MY PRODUCERS IN THE CONTROL ROOM, DO WE WANT TO PLAY THAT RIGHT NOW? IS THAT OKAY? OKAY. WE WILL DO THIS, STAY WITH US, LIVE PICTURE AS YOU ARE LISTENING TO THIS DRAMATIC CALL FOR HELP, IT MAY BE A LITTLE TOUGH TO UNDERSTAND BUT I’M SURE YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU WILL HEAR. LET’S DO IT. >>CARS STANDBY, 3700 NORTH, SHOTS FIRED. >>SHOTS FIRED. >>POLICE INSIDE THE APARTMENT. >>INJURED OFFICERS. >>POLICE RESPOND. >>WAIT >>STANDBY, STANDBY. SHOTS FIRED, SHOTS FIRED INSIDE.>>SHOTS STILL RINGING OFF. >>WE NEED S.W.A.T. ASAP, LONG GUNS ASAP. >>I HAVE OFFICERS SHOT, RADIO. OFFICERS SHOT. SERGEANT SHOT. I HAVE OFFICERS SHOT AT THIS LOCATION IN THE LEG. >>SEND ADDITIONAL CAR IMMEDIATELY. >>STILL SHOTS FIRED. I HAVE OFFICERS SHOT AT THIS LOCATION, LOWER EXTREMITIES. >>SEVERAL SHOTS, OFFICER DOWN. I NEED ALL GUNS, S.W.A.T., OFFICER DOWN, THEY ARE STILL BEING SHOT AT. >>EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO HEAR, AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, THAT IS THE 911 CALL THAT CAME IN RIGHT AFTER OFFICERS RESPONDED TO THE SCENE AT THE 3700 BLOCK OF 15th STREET IN THE NICE TOWN OF TIOGA. YOU CAN HEAR THE OFFICERS, THE PAIN IN THEIR VOICE, OFFICERS SHOT, SHOTS FIRED. THEY WERE TAKING FIRE AT THAT MOMENT, YOU CAN HEAR THE GUNSHOTS IF YOU LISTENED IN THE BACKGROUND OF THAT 911 CALL. THEY WERE CALLING FOR BARRICADE, S.W.A.T., IMMEDIATELY SAYING OFFICERS WERE SHOT IN THE LOWER EXTREMITIES. REALLY GIVING US A VIVID LOOK INSIDE THAT SITUATION AND HOW VOLATILE IT WAS AT THAT MOMENT. >>WE HEARD IN OUR MIND, ONE OFFICER HAD EIGHT GRAZE WOUND TO THE HEAD BUT HE IS DOING OKAY. THE PHILADELPHIA MAYOR JIM KENNEY SPOKE WITH HIM AND HIS FAMILY, ALL THE FAMILIES OF THE INJURED OFFICERS TONIGHT DURING THIS SITUATION AND IT IS ONCE AGAIN, NO END IN SIGHT. WE HAVE A LIFE PICTURE ON THE LEFT AND THE SMALLER BOX YOU ARE LOOKING AT, SOME OFFICERS TALKING TO COMMUNITY MEMBERS, EVERYBODY BEING PEACEFUL AND ORDERLY AND HAVE COME UP TO THE YELLOW CRIME SCENE TAPE. THEY HAVE A LOT OF QUESTIONS. >>THIS IS THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD. >>YOU CAN SEE THE POLICE NOW STILL TALKING TO THEM AND TRYING TO GIVE THEM WHATEVER INFORMATION THEY CAN. THEY ARE CONCERNED AND POLICE ARE KEEPING THE PUBLIC BACK AT A SAFE DISTANCE. >>IT IS FOR THEIR SAFETY AS WELL AS THE OFFICERS THERE ON THE SCENE BOTH INSIDE THE HOUSE STILL WITH THE SUSPECT AND THE ONES OUTSIDE AS WELL TRYING TO CONTROL THE SITUATION, S.W.A.T. TEAM MEMBERS AND TACTICAL UNITS THERE WITH THEIR GUNS TRAINED ON THE HOUSE THE ENTIRE TIME THE LAST SEVERAL HOURS. WE ALSO UNDERSTAND, GETTING TWEETS FROM OFFICIALS, WHETHER IT IS POLICE GIVING US AN UPDATE, THIS IS FROM FORMER VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN, THIS IS HIS TWEET WHICH SAYS, WE SEND OUR PRAYERS TO THE POLICE OFFICERS INJURED TODAY IN PHILADELPHIA AND THEIR FAMILIES THAT WAKE UP EVERY DAY KNOWING THEIR LOVED ONES ARE WALKING INTO HARMS WAY WHEN THEY PUT ON THE BADGE. I AM GRATEFUL FOR THE SELFLESS WORK THEY DO TO KEEP US SAFE. WILSON OF THE WHITE HOUSE AND PRESIDENT ARE MONITORING THE SITUATION IN PHILADELPHIA AS WELL AS GOVERNOR TOM WOLF, PENNSYLVANIA GOVERNOR TOM WOLF TWEETED AS WELL, ALL THE RESOURCES HE CAN POSSIBLY PROVIDE IF NECESSARY ARE THERE FOR THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT AND HE IS MONITORING THE SITUATION AS WELL. >>WE ARE UNDER THE COVER DARKNESS GOING ON FOUR HOURS NOW OF THIS STAND OFF OF THIS SHOOTING. YOU CAN SEE THE ONLY LIGHTS ARE FROM THE STREETLIGHT ON THE CORNER AND THE RED LIGHT, A LAMPPOST, THE OFFICERS LIGHTS ON TOP OF THEIR VEHICLES AND THE S.W.A.T. TEAM DOES HAVE A SPOTLIGHT ON THE HOUSE, THEY ARE CENTERING ON WHERE THE SINGLE MALE VICTIM IS HOLED UP. THE COMMISSIONER WOULD GO AS FAR AS SAYING, WOULD NOT SAY THERE WAS ANOTHER SHOOTER, THERE WERE TALKING TO THE SINGLE MALE SHOOTER INSIDE THE HOUSE AND HE HAS NOT RETURNED THEIR LATEST CALLS. THE SITUATION CONTINUES, THE STANDOFF GOES ON. >>THEY ARE TRYING TO GET IN TOUCH WITH HIS FAMILY AT THIS POINT, ANYONE AT THIS POINT WHO COULD POSSIBLY GET INTO HIS EAR AND BE OF ANY INFLUENCE TO GET HIM TO SURRENDER PEACEFULLY. THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO, THAT IS WHY IT IS HANDLED THIS WAY AND SO CAREFULLY. YOU CAN SEE THEY HAVE NOT RUSHED IN TO BREACH THE DOORS OR DO ANYTHING TO COMPROMISE ANYONE’S SAFETY. TWO POLICE OFFICER STILL INSIDE THE HOUSE AT THIS POINT AND THAT IS CERTAINLY NOT UNNOTICED BY POLICE, THAT IS WHY THEY’RE HANDLING THIS VERY CAREFULLY AND SENSITIVELY FOR THOSE FOLKS IN THE HOUSE AND THE COMMUNITY >>SPEAKING OF THE COMMUNITY, I’M SURE THE DEPARTMENT HAS A GROUP OF PEOPLE, MEN AND WOMEN THAT MAY BE INTERVIEWING PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY ABOUT WHO THIS PERSON MIGHT BE, IF HE IS INDEED A MEMBER OF THE COMMUNITY. WE DON’T KNOW THAT FOR SURE, THIS COULD HAVE BEEN A RANDOM ENTRY INTO A HOUSE, WE DON’T KNOW IF IT WAS HIS HOUSE OR NOT BUT WE DO KNOW THE SITUATION CONTINUES AND IT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE IT WILL BE OVER ANYTIME SOON. >>WE KNOW THE POLICE COMMISSIONER, RICHARD ROSS AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY WERE THREE OFFICERS WERE TAKEN, WE HEARD FROM HIM A SHORT TIME AGO AT A BRIEF PRESS CONFERENCE. HE GAVE US THE BULLET POINTS OF THE STORY AND THE INVESTIGATION AT THIS POINT AND THEN HE SAID I HAVE TO BE WITH MY PEOPLE AND HE LEFT THE SCENE AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, HE RETURNED, LIKELY SOMEWHERE ON THE SCENE, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT BECAUSE HE WILL NOT LEAVE THE SCENE WITH A SITUATION LIKE THIS THAT IS STILL VERY VOLATILE AND PLAYING OUT RIGHT NOW. >>WE DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH AMMUNITION THIS PERSON HAS, EVEN THE COMMISSIONER SAID BEFORE HE GOT THERE, THERE WAS A LOT OF GUNFIRE. HE WAS NOT THERE AT THE VERY MOMENT LIKE HIS PEOPLE WERE, AS THE OTHER OFFICERS WERE. HE MISSED A LOT OF THE GUNFIRE AND ACTION BUT HE HEARD ABOUT IT AND IT WENT ON FOR QUITE A WHILE, WHILE OUR REPORTERS WERE THERE, GREG ARGOS HEARD GUNFIRE FROM TIME TO TIME, PEOPLE AND OFTEN ARE SCRAMBLING TO TAKE COVER, GETTING INTO THE CRUSHING STANCE, DEFENSIVE STANCE, IT CONTINUES. IT SEEMED TO QUIET DOWN A LITTLE BIT NOW, MAYBE BECAUSE OF THE COVER OF DARKNESS OR THE NEGOTIATIONS THAT MIGHT BE GOING ON. WE’RE WAITING TO FIND OUT. AS THE SITUATION CONTINUES, COMING UP ON 8:30 ON THE EAST COAST IN PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA. IT STARTED COMING OVER THE SCANNER AROUND 4:35. >>FOUR HOURS INTO THIS ACTIVE SHOOTER SITUATION, OFFICERS, AS YOU HEARD THE COMMISSIONER SAY EARLIER, THE ENTERED THE UNIT AND IMMEDIATELY CAME UNDER GUNFIRE AND THEY HAD TO GET OUT OF THE WAY. MANY OF THEM ABLE TO SCURRY AWAY AND GET AWAY FROM GUNFIRE. SADLY, SIX OF THEM WERE NOT ABLE TO, SIX WERE STRUCK BY GUNFIRE AND WE ARE TOLD ALL OF THEM IN STABLE CONDITION RIGHT NOW. THEY WERE STRUCK IN VARIOUS PARTS OF THEIR BODY. AGAIN, YOU CAN SEE THE COMMUNITY GATHERING, IT IS HARD TO TELL PEOPLE TO STAY AWAY FROM A SITUATION BECAUSE THEY ARE INQUISITIVE, THEY WANT TO KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING, IT IS THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD. THEY WANT TO KNOW, ARE WE SAFE, WHAT IS GOING ON. >>LET’S FIND OUT WHAT IS HAPPENING AT THE HOSPITAL RIGHT NOW. WE WILL CHECK IN WITH KIMBERLY DAVIS. >>Reporter: GOOD EVENING. WE JUST GOT UPDATED BITE POLICE COMMISSIONER, RICHARD ROSS NOT LONG AGO. HE IS TELLING US THREE OF THE SIX RELEASE OFFICERS SHOT ARE BEING TREATED AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL. THEY ARE IN STABLE CONDITION AT THIS HOUR AND THE GOOD NEWS IS, THEY ARE EXPECTED TO SURVIVE. IT WAS A QUICK PRESS CONFERENCE BECAUSE COMMISSIONER ROSS DID HAVE TO GET BACK TO THAT ACTIVE SCENE. WE ARE TOLD THEY ARE STILL IN TALKS WITH THAT SUSPECT AND HE HAS NO INTENTIONS ON SURRENDERING ANY TIME SOON. HE DESCRIBED TO US WHAT IT WAS LIKE WHEN THOSE OFFICERS CAME UNDER FIRE. LET’S GET STRAIGHT TO THAT VIDEO. >>THEY ALREADY ENTERED THE PREMISES, GOT TOWARDS THE REAR IN THE KITCHEN AREA WHEN GUNFIRE ERUPTED, THE SHOOTER FIRED MULTIPLE ROUNDS. OFFICERS RETURNED FIRE, MANY OF WHOM HAD TO ESCAPE THROUGH WINDOWS AND DOORS TO GET FROM A BARRAGE OF BULLETS. RIGHT NOW, WE CAN TELL YOU THERE ARE SIX POLICE OFFICERS THAT WERE STRUCK BY GUNFIRE. THANKFULLY, ALL OF THEM ARE IN STABLE CONDITION. >>Reporter: NOW, HE DESCRIBED SOME OF THOSE GUNSHOT WOUNDS, WE ARE TOLD ONE OFFICER WAS STRUCK IN THE ARM, ANOTHER IN THE HEAD AND ANOTHER OFFICER SUSTAINED A GRAZE WOUND TO HIS OR HER HEAD. THE GOOD NEWS IS THEY ARE ALL EXPECTED TO SURPRISE, COMMISSIONER ROSS IS CONCERNED OF A POTENTIAL HOSTAGE SITUATION. HE ALSO TELLS US HE CANNOT CONFIRM WHETHER IT IS JUST ONE SHOOTER, THERE COULD BE MULTIPLE SHOOTERS BUT AGAIN, THIS IS ALL VERY FLUID, ALL OF THIS INFORMATION COMING IN AND WE WILL UPDATE YOU WITH NEW INFORMATION AS SOON AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE. MAYOR JIM KELLY HERE FOR THE PRESS CONFERENCE AND DISTRICT ATTORNEY, LARRY KRASNER ONCE NEW INFORMATION, AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE, WE WILL UPDATE YOU. BACK TO THE STUDIO. >>HERE IS NEW INFORMATION AS WELL, FOR THE MEDIA AND CITIZENS FROM THE PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT LOOKING AT THE LATEST TWEET, THEY SIMPLY SAY DO NOT OPERATE DRONES IN THE AREA OF POLICE OPERATIONS. THEY DON’T WANT ANYTHING TO INTERFERE WITH THEIR OPERATIONS AND WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO DO TONIGHT IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA. THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT. >>IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THEY KEEP TELLING PEOPLE TO KEEP THEIR DISTANCE ULTIMATELY, DO NOT COME INTO THIS AREA, STAY AWAY FROM THIS AREA, IT IS A VOLATILE SCENE AND THIS GUNFIRE HAS ERUPTED SPONTANEOUSLY AND SPONTANEOUSLY THROUGHOUT THE EVENING, YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN IT WILL ERUPT AGAIN, THAT IS WHY THEY ARE SO CONCERNED ABOUT NEIGHBORS IN THAT AREA, THEIR OWN OFFICERS IN THAT AREA TRYING TO DEFUSE THE SITUATION, THIS IS VERY MUCH A SITUATION THAT IS FAR FROM OVER RIGHT NOW. >>EVEN GREG ARGOS SET A STRAY BULLET WHISTLED DOWN THE BLOCK HE WAS ON, HE WAS NOT THERE AT THE TIME, WE GOT WORD OF IT, ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN IN A SITUATION LIKE THIS. IF YOU ARE IN THE AREA, IN THE ROW HOMES ON EITHER SIDE OF THAT S.W.A.T. VEHICLE IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR SCREEN, SIT TIGHT. >>WE ARE HEARING ALEX HALL AT THE SCENE JUST HEARD GUNFIRE AS WE WERE TALKING. AGAIN, AS WE WERE SAYING, FIRING SPORADICALLY AND THERE ú WHEN HE WILL START FIRING AGAIN, THAT IS WHY THEY KEEP TELLING PEOPLE TO STAY AWAY FROM THIS SITUATION AND AWAY FROM THAT AREA BECAUSE THESE BULLETS, ROUNDS HAVE STRUCK A S.W.A.T. TRUCK AND OTHER BUILDINGS IN THE AREA. THERE ARE HOUSES, THIS IS IT DENSELY POPULATED AREA OF NORTH PHILADELPHIA, HOUSES, BUSINESSES, DAY CARE CENTER AS WE SAW EARLIER TODAY. THERE IS SO MUCH TO BEAR, YOU COULD BE IN THE LINE OF FIRE AT ANY POINT. YOU HAVE TO BE COGNIZANT OF THAT. >>WHEN IT COMES TO THE UNKNOWN, THEY HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH AMMUNITION OR HOW MANY WEAPONS THIS PERSON HAS, THIS MALE IN THIS HOME. ONCE AGAIN, TWO OFFICERS IN THE HOME, WE ARE NOT SURE EXACTLY WHERE, THEY ARE SAFE AND OKAY ACCORDING TO GREG IN THE LAST REPORT. THE SITUATION CONTINUES AND WE ARE MONITORING EVERY SINGLE MINUTE OF IT FOR YOU LIVE ON CBS3. >>>HELLO, EVERYONE. I AM TANYA RIVERO. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. POLICE IN A STANDOFF IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF PHILADELPHIA WHERE EARLIER SEVERAL POLICE OFFICERS WERE INJURED IN A SHOOTING. WITNESSES REPORTED HEARING HUNDREDS OF SHOTS FIRED NEAR TEMPLE UNIVERSITY’S HEALTH AND SCIENCE CAMPUS THIS EVENING. POLICE SAID OFFICIALS ARE TALKING TO THE SUSPECT. JERICKA DUNCAN IS AT THE SCENE AND JOINS US NOW. WHAT IS THE LATEST IN THE STANDOFF SITUATION? >>Reporter: WE WERE HERE WHEN WE HEARD SOME OF THE SHOTS FIRED. THE POLICE COMMISSIONER SAID HE IS WORRIED ABOUT A POTENTIAL HOSTAGE SITUATION, THOSE WERE HIS WORDS AT A NEWS CONFERENCE GIVEN OUTSIDE OF THE HOSPITAL WHERE SIX POLICE OFFICERS ARE RECOVERING. THEY ARE IN STABLE CONDITION ACCORDING TO THE COMMISSIONER FROM THE SHOOTOUT THAT HAPPEN EARLIER THIS AFTERNOON. WE ARE TWO BLOCKS AWAY FROM WHERE THIS TOOK PLACE, IT HAS BEEN MOVED BACK SINCE WE FIRST ARRIVED ON SCENE BECAUSE OF THE CONCERNS FOR THE COMMUNITY AND THAT DANGEROUS NATURE OF THE SITUATION. AT LEAST ONE GUN MAN INSIDE ACCORDING TO THE POLICE COMMISSIONER. SOURCES TELL CBS NEWS, AT LEAST TWO OFFICERS ARE INSIDE, WHICH MAKES SENSE WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THE COMMISSIONER’S WORDS WHEN CONCERNED ABOUT A POTENTIAL HOSTAGE SITUATION. WE ARE HEARING OF THE TWO OFFICERS INSIDE, ONE OFFICER HAS ONE PRISONER AND THE OTHER HAS TWO. EARLIER, POLICE ARRIVED AT THE HOME TO SERVE A NARCOTICS WARRANT, THAT IS WHEN THE GUNFIRE ERUPTED. WE HAVE BEEN HERE SEVERAL HOURS NOW AND HEARD MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF GUNFIRE. NEIGHBORS THAT LIVE IN THE AREA SAY IT SOUNDED LIKE AT TIMES HUNDREDS OF GUNFIRE ERUPTING FROM THAT AREA. IT IS AN ACTIVE SCENE, POLICE ARE KEEPING US BACK AND ASKING NEIGHBORS TO STAY INSIDE AND STAY AWAY, JUST TO RECAP THE SIX OFFICERS SHOT ARE EXPECTED TO BE OKAY, THEY ARE IN STABLE CONDITION AT THE POLICE COMMISSIONER SAID THEY ARE STILL NEGOTIATING WITH THE GUN MAN INSIDE THE HOME. >>GREAT NEWS ABOUT THAT POLICE OFFICERS INSIDE THE HOSPITAL RECOVERING. IT IS WORRISOME ABOUT THOSE TWO OFFICERS APPARENTLY INSIDE THE BUILDING. WHAT MORE CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THAT, DO WE KNOW HOW LONG THEY HAVE BEEN INSIDE? >>Reporter: THIS ALL STARTED AT ABOUT 4:35 EASTERN, IT IS ABOUT 8:35 EASTERN RIGHT NOW. YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT FOUR HOURS WHEN ALL OF THIS STARTED, IT SOUNDS LIKE IT HAS BEEN A PROCESS. THE POLICE COMMISSIONER SAID HE HAS GIVEN THIS PERSON INSIDE MULTIPLE OPPORTUNITIES TO COME OUT, THEY HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TALK TO HIM THROUGH THE BULLHORN TRYING TO NEGOTIATE, THEY HAVE CALLED HIM MULTIPLE TIMES BUT HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET HIM TO SURRENDER. SO, THE CONCERN OF COURSE BASED ON OUR SOURCES IS TWO OFFICERS THAT ARE CURRENTLY INSIDE THAT HOME. >>Reporter: JERICKA DUNCAN ON THE GROUND IN PHILADELPHIA. THANK YOU. >>>FOR CONTINUED COVERAGE OF THE SHOOTING IN PHILADELPHIA, WE TURN TO OUR AFFILIATE STATION THERE, KYW. >>WE WILL GO DOWN TO GREG ARGOS , HE CAN GIVE US MORE INFORMATION. >>Reporter: IT IS A VERY TENSE SCENE, AT NORTH PHILADELPHIA, WE HEARD FROM ALEXANDRIA HOFF, GUNSHOTS POSSIBLY FIRED, OR FIRECRACKERS, NOT SURE, IT SOUNDED A LITTLE DIFFERENT FROM THE VOLLEYS WE HEARD BACK AND FORTH FROM A LITTLE WHILE AGO. AS WE HAVE BEEN REITERATING, WE JUST HEARD FROM THE COMMISSIONER, THE SIX OFFICERS WITH NON-LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES, THAT IS THE GREAT NEWS. THE SUSPECT WE ARE TOLD IS STILL INSIDE THE HOUSE WITH A CONFIRMED RIFLE OF SOME SORT AND ENGAGING WITH POLICE, STILL NOT SURRENDERING HIMSELF TO INVESTIGATORS. EARLIER, WE WITNESSED FOUR WOMEN ESCORTED BY THE PHILADELPHIA S.W.A.T. TEAM DOWN THIS BLOCK, THEY WERE VISIBLY SHAKEN, CRYING IN FACT. THEY TOLD US THEY WERE INSIDE THE HOUSE WHEN THIS ALL UNFOLDED AROUND 4:35 THIS AFTERNOON. TAKE A LISTEN TO WHAT THEY SAY HAPPENED. >>I THINK GOD FOR THESE COPS, THEY ARE GOOD PEOPLE, DON’T SAY NOTHING BAD ABOUT THEM, THEY KEPT US SAFE THE WHOLE TIME. THEY KEPT US SAFE. >>I LIVE ON THE SECOND FLOOR. YES. >>Reporter: AND BESIDES THE DANGEROUS SITUATION HAPPENING BEHIND US WITH POLICE AND THE SUSPECT, THERE IS ALSO SEVERE WEATHER ENTERING THE REGION RIGHT NOW. WE HAVE SEEN MULTIPLE LIGHTNING FOR OUR SAFETY WITH ALL THIS ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT AND TURN IT OFF THE NEXT FEW MINUTES AS THE STORM PASSES THROUGH. THAT IS THE LATEST LIVE IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA, UKEE AND NATASHA, BACK TO YOU. >>THANK YOU, THE WEATHER IS MOVING IN, KATE GAVE US THE UPDATE A LITTLE WHILE AGO. I DON’T KNOW HOW THAT WILL TEMPER THE SITUATION, HOPEFULLY SOMETHING CAN BE DONE SOON BECAUSE THIS IS NOT GOOD. >>THIS IS DRAGGING INTO FOUR HOURS LATER SINCE THE OFFICERS INITIALLY STARTED TAKING GUNFIRE FROM THE SUSPECT THERE IN THE NICE TOWN TIOGA AREA. THEY ARE STILL TAKING FIRE NOW, ALEXANDRIA HOFF HEARD GUNFIRE A SHORT TIME AGO. POLICE ARE EMPLOYING THE SUSPECT AGAIN, PLEASE SURRENDER PEACEFULLY, SURRENDER SAFELY, WE WILL TALK TO YOU, TALK YOU OUT OF THIS, WHATEVER WE NEED TO DO TO GET IN TOUCH WITH HIS FAMILY, AT THIS POINT, WHATEVER THEY CAN DO TO END THE SITUATION AS QUICKLY AND PEACEFULLY AS POSSIBLE. >>MAYBE TALK TO SOMEBODY IN THE COMMUNITY THAT IS A FRIEND. WHAT CAN THEY DO OR SAY, WHAT INFORMATION CAN THEY GIVE THEM BOUT THIS PERSON TO HOPEFULLY ADD TO HIM SURRENDERING AND HOPEFULLY DOING IT SOON. I DON’T KNOW. IT IS TOUGH TO FIGURE OUT RIGHT NOW. WE ARE GOING OFF OF THE INFORMATION THE REPORTERS AND THE POLICE AND COMMISSIONER AND MAYER HAVE GIVEN US, IT IS TOUGH SINCE WE ARE NOT THERE AS WELL. THEY ARE GOING TO GIVEN OUT LIMITED INFORMATION, FLUID SITUATION. >>JOE HOLDEN HAS BEEN GIVING US INFORMATION, TALKING WITH HIS SOURCES WITH THE POLICE DEPARTMENT AND OTHER OFFICIALS. LET’S GET BACK OUT TO HIM AND HEAR WHAT HE HAS TO SAY. >>Reporter: I JUST SPOKE TO SOURCES ABOUT WHERE THEY ARE RIGHT NOW. WE CLEARLY KNOW THE EXCHANGE OF GUNFIRE WITH POLICE CONTINUES WITH THAT HOLED UP DEFENDED SUSPECT INSIDE THAT HOUSE. THIS IS HOW IT BEGAN, A LITTLE MORE INFORMATION AND CONTEXT. THE NARCOTICS STRIKE FORCE WAS SERVING THAT WARRANT AT A LOCATION DOWN THE STREET FROM WHERE THE BARRICADE IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. APPARENTLY, SEVEN PEOPLE TAKEN INTO CUSTODY FROM THAT LOCATION, THEY ARE NOW IT POLICE HEADQUARTERS, IT IS NOT BELIEVED ANY OF THOSE SEVEN IS CONNECTED TO THE SHOOTING THAT UNFOLDED. HERE’S WHERE IT GETS INTERESTING, THE NARCOTICS STRIKE FORCE RECEIVED INTELLIGENCE JUST A FEW DOORS AWAY, THERE WERE SUSPECTS WITH HIGH POWERED WEAPONS. THEY WENT DOWN THERE AND THAT IS WHERE THE STORY PICKS UP WHERE THE POLICE COMMISSIONER INDICATED THEY WERE IN THE KITCHEN AREA WHERE THE SUSPECTS STARTED FIRING ON POLICE AND POLICE EXCHANGED GUNFIRE AND POLICE ESCAPING THROUGH DOORS AND WINDOWS. RIGHT NOW, AT THIS COUNT, ACCORDING TO SOURCES, 30 PHILADELPHIA POLICE OFFICERS HAVE DISCHARGED THEIR FIREARMS. THEY HAVE BEEN PUT IN A BUS APPARENTLY AND THERE IS A WHOLE PROCESS INVOLVED WITH DEALING WITH THOSE OFFICERS BECAUSE THEY HAVE DISCHARGED THEIR WEAPONS. I’M TOLD THE LEAD ON THE CASE RIGHT NOW IS A JOINT LEAD, THE OFFICER INVOLVED SHOOTING TEAM AND HOMICIDE. THERE HAVE BEEN NO REPORTED DEATHS AT ANY OF THESE SCENES BUT PER PROTOCOL, HOMICIDE UNIT AND THE OFFICER INVOLVED SHOOTING TEAM IS JOINTLY INVOLVED IN THE INVESTIGATION. RECAPPING, SEVEN PEOPLE TAKEN INTO CUSTODY, NOT CONNECTED TO THE EXCHANGE, THE GUN BATTLE WITH POLICE BUT THEY WERE AT LOCATION A AND THEN LOCATION B IS WHERE THE GUN EXCHANGE HAPPENED WITH PHILADELPHIA POLICE. 30 OFFICERS SO FAR HAVE DISCHARGED THEIR WEAPONS IN THIS EXCHANGE AND THE PEOPLE WHO ARE BEING TAKEN INTO CUSTODY ARE BEING TAKEN TO PHILADELPHIA POLICE HEADQUARTERS. THAT IS THE LATEST FROM OUR SOURCES HERE OUTSIDE THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE CENTER. I’M JOE HOLDEN WITH CBS3 EYEWITNESS NEWS. >>30 OFFICERS, WOW. >>30 OFFICERS DISCHARGED THEIR WEAPONS, THESE ARE TWO DIFFERENT SITUATIONS. THE ONE WITH THE WARRANT BEING SERVED AND THIS SITUATION WHICH POLICE HAD GONE TO A DIFFERENT LOCATION APPARENTLY, THE ONE WE ARE LOOKING AT RIGHT NOW BECAUSE THEY HEARD ABOUT SUSPECTS WITH LOTS OF AMMUNITION. >>MAJOR STOCKPILE, CACHE. >>TWO DIFFERENT SITUATIONS THAT PLAYED OUT. >>UNBELIEVABLE, 30 OFFICERS DISCHARGING THEIR WEAPONS. JOE WILL STAY ON TOP OF THAT WITH ALL THE SOURCES AND CONTACTS HE HAS AS HOPEFULLY THIS COMES TO RESOLUTION VERY SOON. WE SEE OFFICERS AND PEOPLE ON THE SCENE AT THIS LOCATION AS WELL AND THE ONE IN NORTH PHILADELPHIA. THIS IS JUST, NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING OVER. WE WILL ARE WELL OVER FOUR HOURS NOW SINCE THE CALL CAME IN TO OUR NEWSROOM AND THE TENSION IS JUST AS GRIPPING AS WE WILL FIRST WENT ON THE AIR. >>IT REALLY IS, MORE LAYERS OF THIS STORY KEEP UNFOLDING THROUGHOUT THE EVENING. OF COURSE THAT IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE IN A FLUID SITUATION LIKE THIS. AGAIN, SIX PHILADELPHIA POLICE OFFICERS ULTIMATELY SHOT, ALL OF THE INJURIES NON-LIFE- THREATENING, THREE AT TEMPLE HOSPITAL, 3R AT EINSTEIN HOSPITAL, THEY ARE FLANKED BY PHILADELPHIA POLICE OFFICERS AND THEIR FAMILY AT THIS POINT. RIGHT NOW, THE POLICE COMMISSIONER AND ANY HIGH- RANKING POLICE OFFICIAL IS OUT AT THE SCENE IN THE NICE TOWN OF TIOGA AREA, TRYING TO DIFFUSE THE SITUATION WITH THE SUSPECT HOLED UP INSIDE A ROW HOME, TRYING TO TALK HIM DOWN AND OUT OF THAT HOUSE, HOPING HE WILL SURRENDER PEACEFULLY SO THERE IS NO MORE GUNFIRE THAT HER REPS TONIGHT. >>I JUST RECEIVED NOTICE, STORMS ARE STARTING TO ROLL IN AS KATE MENTIONED A LITTLE WHILE AGO, STORMS ARE STUNNING TO ROLL IN, AND TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE AND OUR CRUSADE, WE HAVE TO GO OFF THE AIR A FEW MOMENTS. WE WILL STAY ON TOP OF THIS OFF THE AIR, THERE YOU CAN SEE THE STORMS MOVING IN RIGHT NOW AND HOW THIS WILL AFFECT THE SITUATION, THE SITUATION, WE WILL STAY ON TOP OF IT. OUR CREWS WILL REMAIN ON SCENE BUT THEY WILL NOT BE REPORTING BECAUSE OF THE DANGERS.>>>THIS IS AMERICA’S LATEST SUPERHERO. >>DON’T FORGET TO SHOW LOVE. >>THIS IS HIS KINDERGARTEN CLASS. THIS ONE-TIME SCHOOL ADMINISTRATOR IS NOW ARCHITECT, THIS IS JUST SOME OF HER ARMY. >>I WANT OTHER PEOPLE TO KNOW THEY CAN DO THIS IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS, IT IS DOABLE. >>THIS HISTORY IS STILL LIVING. >>THIS IS A MIRACLE! >>IT IS WORKING. >>OH, IT IS WORKING. >>>SHE HAS BROUGHT US THE WORLD. >>IT IS A NEW DAY HERE IN THIS COUNTRY. >>AND TOLD AMERICA’S MOST IMPORTANT STORIES. >>HOW DOES A GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN AFFECT NATIONAL SECURITY? >>SHE OPENED OUR EYES. >>WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU? >>I WAS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED MY FRESHMAN YEAR. >>AND OUR HEARTS. >>WERE YOU SCARED, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? >>AND WATHERED THE STORM. >>THEY DROVE YOU THROUGH THE FLOODWATER.>>NOW, SHE BRINGS US TRUTH AND UNDERSTANDING WHEN WE NEED IT MOST. >>WOW, THIS IS PRETTY SPECTACULAR. >>THE “CBS EVENING NEWS” WITH NORAH O’DONNELL. TRUST MATTERS. >>>THIS IS THE SCENE IN TIJUANA TODAY. >>YOU USED TO LIVE IN THE U.S. , BY ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES, YOU WERE AN AMERICAN. HE HAS A YOUNG SON, HE WANTS TO SEE THEM GROW IN THE U.S. LIKE HE DID. >>WE WERE ALERTED TO ANOTHER SHOOTING HERE. >>I GOT SHOT WITH A .38. >>Reporter: ARE YOU AFRAID OF GETTING SHOT, JACOB? >>YEAH. AS A PARENT I WILL DO WHAT IT TAKES TO TAKE CARE OF MY SON. >>>THIS IS CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION. >>>THIS IS THE LATEST. THIS IS THE REAL DEAL. >>THIS IS A NEW FORM OF WARFARE. THIS IS NOT A REAL SOLUTION. >>THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION OF OUR LIFETIME. >>THIS IS HIGHLY RELEVANT. >>THIS IS WHAT A LOT OF PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND. >>THIS IS UTTER MADNESS. >>THIS IS WHAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT. >>THIS IS “FACE THE NATION”. >>>TO GIVE PEOPLE THE POWER TO BUILD COMMUNITY, TO BRING THE WORLD CLOSER TOGETHER. >>MAKE PEOPLE DOUBT WHAT THE FACTS ARE, AND YOUR TRUST IS ERODED. SOCIAL MEDIA WAS WEAPONIZED. >>THE GOVERNMENT HAS DONE A GOOD JOB OF SELLING SEEDS OF DOUBT INTO THE MINDS OF PEOPLE. >>IF NOTHING CHANGES, WE WILL LOSE DEMOCRACY. THIS MOVE TOWARD AUTHORITARIAN STYLE LEADERS. >>THIS IS HAPPENING IN THE UNITED STATES. >>HI, EVERYONE. I AM TANYA RIVERO. AND YOU FOR JOINING US. WE ARE MONITORING A DEVELOPING SITUATION, POLICE IN A STANDOFF WITH A SUSPECT IN A NEIGHBORHOOD OF PHILADELPHIA WHERE EARLIER SEVERAL POLICE OFFICERS WERE INJURED IN A SHOOTING. WITNESSES REPORTED HEARING HUNDREDS OF SHOTS FIRED NEAR TEMPLE UNIVERSITY’S HEALTH AND SCIENCES CAMPUS EARLIER THIS EVENING. OFFICIALS SAY TWO POLICE OFFICERS ARE INSIDE THE HOUSE WITH THE SHOOTER AND OTHER POSSIBLE HOSTAGES. OFFICERS SAY THEIR ATTEMPTS TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE SUSPECT HAVE BEEN UNSUCCESSFUL. LAW ENFORCEMENT SAID THERE IS NO INDICATION THE MAN WANTS TO SURRENDER, THEY BELIEVE THE SITUATION IS “NOWHERE NEAR RESOLVED”. WE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THIS IN PHILADELPHIA AND BRING YOU ANY NEWS CONFERENCES OR DEVELOPMENTS AS WE GET THEM. NOW, WE TURN TO THE OTHER TOP STORIES OF THE DAY. >>>U.S. STOCKS TOOK A DEEP DIVE WEDNESDAY AMID NEW WARNING SIGNS OF UNCERTAINTY IN THE ECONOMY. INTEREST RATES ON THE BOND MARKET DROPPED TO LEVELS THAT HAVE NOT, HAVE BEEN A PAST INDICATOR OF AN ONCOMING RECESSION. DON DAHLER HAS THE LATEST. >>Reporter: TRADERS REACTED LIKE SKITTISH COLTS TO TODAY’S NEWS, A KEY SIGNAL A RECESSION MAY BE AROUND THE CORNER, WITH THE DOW PLUNGING 800 POINTS. THE CHIEF ECONOMIST AT GRAND THORTON SAID INVESTORS ARE FLEEING STOCKS FOR SAFETY AND BONDS. >>THE EASIEST WAY TO UNDERSTAND IT IS BASICALLY LONG- TERM RATES, ANYTHING OUT THERE MORE THAN A YEAR OR TWO YEARS, THREE YEARS OR FOUR YEARS, THOSE RATES ARE LOWER THAN SHORT-TERM RATES. IT MEANS YOU’RE NOT WILLING TO PLACE A BET ON THE FUTURE AND THAT IS THE FEAR, THIS COULD TRIGGER A CREDIT CRISIS. >>Reporter: IT DOES NOT MEAN A RECESSION IS IMMINENT. HISTORICALLY, TO TAKE 18 TO 24 MONTHS TO ARRIVE IF AT ALL. IN THIS CASE, THE RECESSION COULD COME AROUND THE 2020 ELECTION. THE OTHER FACTOR INFLUENCING THE SELLOFF IS THE GLOBAL ECONOMIC SLOWDOWN. CHINA EMBROILED IN A TRADE WAR WITH THE U.S. REPORTED ITS SLOWEST GROWTH FIGURES SINCE 1992. JAPAN’S ECONOMIC GROWTH DECREASED 1.8 %. GERMANY’S ECONOMY WITH EXPERT LAGGING AND MUCH OF EUROPE FOLLOWING SUIT WITH PRODUCTION PLUNGING THE MOST IN THREE YEARS AS ITS ECONOMIC EXPANSION COOLS. THIS WILL UNDOUBTEDLY PUT PRESSURE ON THE FEDERAL RESERVE AND ITS CHAIRMAN, JEROME POWELL TO CUT INTEREST RATES. POWELL HAS BEEN THE TARGET OF WITHERING CRITICISM FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP OVER THE FED’S MONETARY POLICY. >>DON DAHLER, THANK YOU.>>>YAHOO FINANCE ANCHOR, ADAM SHAPIRO JOINS US NOW. WELCOME, GREAT TO HAVE YOU WITH US. WHAT HAPPENED WEDNESDAY TO MAKE INVESTORS SO FEARFUL? >>THREE KEY THINGS, YOU HEARD DON TALK ABOUT IT IN HIS REPORT, THE INVERSION OF THE TWO-YEAR TREASURY REPORT AND WHEN THE TENURE FALLS BELOW THE TWO YEAR AS HE POINTED OUT, IT SIGNALS WE COULD GO INTO RECESSION IN TWO YEARS, IT HAPPENED SEVEN TIMES IN THE PAST AND THE U.S. ECONOMY SLIPPED INTO RECESSION. THAT IS ONE KEY FACTOR PICKED OTHER KEY FACTORS WERE THE SLOWDOWN IN CHINA, UNEMPLOYMENT NOW HIGHER IN CHINA THAN EXPECTED, THAT IS BECAUSE OF THE U.S./CHINA TRADE WORK. IT WAS GERMANY, THE GERMAN GDP CONTRACTED AND JIM, THAT IS THE PROBLEM, THE FOURTH LARGEST úEC DRIVER OF THE EUROPEAN ZONE. THAT WAS VERY TROUBLING TO INVESTORS. THAT SENT EVERYONE INTERFERE MODE AND YOU SAW THE SELLOFF. >>WE HAVE THAT SHARP DECLINE WHICH COMES JUST AFTER PRESIDENT TRUMP ANNOUNCES HE WILL PUSH BACK ADDITIONAL TARIFFS ON CHINESE GOODS. THIS HELPED THE STOCK MARKET SEE AN UPSWING ON TUESDAY. WHY WASN’T THAT ENOUGH TO HAVE A LASTING IMPACT? >>BECAUSE THE FORCES BUYING STOCK YESTERDAY WERE LOOKING AT THE HEADLINE, THE HEADLINE WAS TARIFFS DELAYED UNTIL DECEMBER. BUT WHEN YOU READ WHAT WAS STILL GOING TO GO INTO TARIFF OR TEXT ESSENTIALLY ON SEPTEMBER 1, SOMETHING LIKE 80 % OF GOODS LIKE CLOTHING, BICYCLES , SOME OF THE TOYS YOU MIGHT BE BUYING FOR CHRISTMAS. THEY WILL STILL BE TAXED COME SEPTEMBER 1. WE SPOKE WITH THE PRESIDENT AND CEO OF ONE OF THE TRADE LOBBYING GROUPS FOR RETAILERS, THE AMERICAN APPAREL FOOTWEAR ASSOCIATION, THERE’S NO REPRIEVE HERE. THESE MANUFACTURERS OF CLOSING AND THE GOODS YOU WANT TO BUY PEOPLE FOR BACK-TO-SCHOOL, CHRISTMAS AND HANUKKAH AND THE HOLIDAYS COMING UP, YOU WILL PAY MORE FOR THAT BECAUSE IT IS SUBJECT TO A 10 % TARIFFS IN TWO DAYS. >>THAT IS HAPPENING. PRESIDENT TRUMP TWEETED ON WEDNESDAY THE TRADE WAR WITH CHINA IS NOT THE PROBLEM, HE SAYS “OUR PROBLEM IS WITH THE FED”. WHAT ROLE EXACTLY HAS THE FEDERAL RESERVE PLAYED IN WHAT SOME ECONOMISTS ARE PREDICTING NOW COULD BE THE PENDING ECONOMIC CRISIS? >>THERE’S A GRAIN OF TRUTH IN WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAID. THE FED ADMITTED IT MISJUDGED WHAT IT WAS DOING LAST YEAR WHEN IT RAISED INTEREST RATES. BUT THEY CORRECTED THAT MISTAKE AND YOU HEARD JAY POWELL SAY AS MUCH. THEY ARE NOW ON A PATH TRYING TO SUSTAIN THE ECONOMIC RECOVERY. MAKE NO MISTAKE, OUR ECONOMY IS STILL GOING. SO, WHEN THE PRESIDENT SAYS WHEN THE FED, HE WANTS THE FED TO CUT INTEREST RATES. AGAIN, DON TALK ABOUT THAT IN HIS REPORT. IF THE FED WERE TO CUT INTEREST RATES IN SEPTEMBER AT THEIR NEXT MEETING, THAT WOULD LOWER THE SHORTER-TERM MATURITIES, LOWER THE YIELD ON THOSE, YOU WOULD NOT HAVE THIS INVERSION THAT HAS EVERYONE SO PANICKED. THAT WOULD NOT NECESSARILY AVERT A RECESSION. THAT WOULD JUST MAKE PEOPLE WHO TRADED BONDS VERY HAPPY. >>BUT ADAM, CAN YOU EXPLAIN SOMETHING TO ME THOUGH, I THOUGHT THE FED WAS SUPPOSED TO RAISE INTEREST RATES WHEN THE ECONOMY EXPANDED AND THE ECONOMY WAS STRONG, WHICH I THOUGHT IT WAS SO WHAT DID THE FED MISCALCULATE THEN? >>THEY MISCALCULATED THE GLOBAL ECONOMY AND ITS IMPACT ON THE U.S. ECONOMY. REMEMBER, THIS IS ALL STILL TERRITORY WE HAVE NEVER BEEN IN BEFORE. THE MEASURES THE FED ENACTED IN 2008, TO SAVE US FROM THE GREAT RECESSION AND THE CALAMITY WE WERE FACING, WE STILL LIVE WITH THOSE ACTIONS, WE HAVE NOT EMERGED FROM THEM. THE VOLATILITY WE SEE IN THE STOCK MARKET RIGHT NOW, THE STOCK MARKET WAS MUCH MORE VOLATILE BEFORE 2007, 2008, WE WOULD HAVE UPS AND DOWNS, NOT THESE TREMENDOUS SWINGS, YOU WOULD HAVE UPS AND DOWNS. WHEN THEY FLOODED THE MARKET WITH EASY MONEY AND IT DID HAVE POSITIVE EFFECTS, PEOPLE GOT COMPLACENT, YOU COULD INVEST WITHOUT HAVING TO WORRY ABOUT WHERE THE MONEY WAS GOING IN SOME CASES, THEY CALLED THEM ZOMBIE COMPANIES, THEY SHOULD’VE BEEN PUT OUT OF BUSINESS, BECAUSE THEY GET CHEAP FINANCING, THEY ARE STILL OUT THERE, IN A NORMAL WORLD, THAT NORMAL WORLD HAS NOT BEEN AROUND ABOUT 12 YEARS, YES, THE FED WOULD BE RAISING INTEREST RATES BECAUSE THE ECONOMY IS STRONG. BUT IT IS NOT NORMAL, YOU SEE THAT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT WAGES. WHEN WE GOT THE LABOR NUMBERS, WAGES ARE GROWING BUT NOT AT THE PACE WE WOULD HAVE IN RECOVERIES IN THE PAST. THE RECOVERIES IN THE FIRST PART OF THIS CENTURY, THE EARLY 2000, THE ECONOMY WAS GROWING, YOU SAW WAGE GROWTH AROUND 4 TO 5 %. WAGE GROWTH RIGHT NOW IS AROUND 3 PERCENT AND THAT A STRONG COMPARED TO WHAT IT WAS THREE MONTHS AGO AT 2.7 %. NOTHING IS THE SAME AS IT WAS BEFORE THE GREAT RECESSION. >>ALL NEW RULES BEING WRITTEN HERE. IN YOUR OPINION, DO YOU SEE THE U.S. FALLING INTO A RECESSION AND IF SO, IN YOUR OPINION, WHAT COULD BE DONE TO PREVENT IT ? >>I DON’T SHARE MY OPINION BUT I WILL SHARE THE OPINIONS OF SMARTER PEOPLE THAN ME AND WE BRING THESE ANALYST ON. WE KEEP HEARING PEOPLE SAY THERE’S NO NEED FOR THE U.S. TO GO INTO RECESSION. WHY? WE ARE FULL EMPLOYMENT ESSENTIALLY. TWO, WE ARE IN AN INFLATIONARY ENVIRONMENT THAT DOES NOT EXIST. WHAT THE FED IS MORE CONCERNED ABOUT IS DISINFLATION AND DEFLATION. WHEN WE BRING ANALYSTS ON, THEY SEE ANOTHER YEAR TO TWO YEARS OF GROWTH AND WE HAVE A, WE NOTE THE GDP IS GROWING AROUND 1.5, IF WE’RE LUCKY 2.5 %. BUT FALLING INTO RECESSION IS SOMETHING WE WILL KNOW AFTER THE FACT. AND THIS INVERSION THAT GOT EVERYONE UPSET AT 6 AM THIS MORNING, THAT IS ONE OF MANY DATA POINTS YOU HAVE TO PAY ATTENTION TO. RIGHT NOW, WE ARE NOT IN RECESSION, ANALYSTS THAT COME ON OUR PROGRAM AND TALK ABOUT HOW TO INVEST SAY LOOK, THERE WILL BE UPSIDE. I WANT TO QUOTE ONE OF THEM, I’M LIKE YOU, I’M A 401(K) PERSON AND I DO IT PASSIVELY, I’M IN AN INDEX FUND. WE BROUGHT ON ANN LESTER FROM J.P. MORGAN CHASE, SHE’S IN CHARGE THE HEAD OF RETIREMENT SOLUTIONS AT J P.M., SHE SAID LOOK, DON’T

  • If it was a narcotic warrant they should have planned better. You can’t just run in someone’s home like that of course they ready to shoot

  • wow! so much police!! looks like that's the reason NRA wants general public to have some kind of nails in case the government and them part ways at some point in far future

  • Arvils Zeipins says:

    When everything is over they still can make 3 and a half hours live drama coverage. Real pros to keep people on anxiety. Watching a few minutes but cant count how many times they said "still active still live".

  • imjustsaying tho says:

    How many people did cops shoot today throughout the country?🤔

    Just curious. My prayers go out to all those drug dealers that got harrassed for trying to supply the demand. Stop the war on drugs. Stop perpetuating poverty and misery. Make drugs cheap and available for those who wish to do them.

    Stop harassing people for trying to self medicate. We have a right to relive our pain if doctors won't treat those without insurance.

    The hunted became hunted tonight. no doubt a very awkward scenario when you're being shot at.. maybe now lessons can be learn. Doesn't feel right when someone shoots at you does it. Now those officers have walked in the shoes of black males who are gun down and unarmed. Doesn't feel good I bet ..

  • imjustsaying tho says:

    Six of there brothers and sisters? How about the cop that KILLED an innocent woman in Arlington Texas not even a week ago!? That man is on LEAVE. not in jail, hes at home with his family. A murderer with a badge and no consequences. Pathetic

  • claire sincere says:

    My old block, the block isn't a bad block the further up the street you go, closer to Erie ave is where it gets rowdy. Glad no one was killed. This guy will be in Jail for the rest of his life. Sheesh!

    THE LONG ARM OF ELIZABETH WARREN(POKE MY HUNTAS) HAS NOW REACHED PHILADELPHIA AND WE HAVE MORE SHOOTING VICTIMS !!!!!!!

  • Diary of an ordinary day in Ah'Murica.: Went to school, tried not to get shot on the way, went into school and tried not to get shot by either the other kids, the teachers or the armed Rambo guards, went to the mall after school and tried not to get shot there, walked down the street and had to avoid the OK Chorale mass Police street shoot out, headed home and I hope cousin mad Mike visiting doesn't shoot me there cause he's packing plenty, watched TV and saw 2500 people were shot today and we all pretended we are shocked and horrified like its some kind of unexplained tragedy, went to bed and tried to sleep through all the shooting in the streets outside. Oh and prayed to thank the good-lord-almighty (amen) for not getting shot today. PS ask dad if I can have a gun for my 11th birthday cause all my mates do! Signed, Chip Sturgermeger the 3rd. God Bless the shoot-em-up States of Ah-Murica. Waves flag!

  • this comments section is OVERFILLED with all of the countless MAGA Cult morons, mental simpletons, & conspiracy theory lunatics, thinking this has ANYTHING AT ALL to do with Epstein…. apparently all you pea brains here, can't think about TWO separate unrelated things at a time, nor understand this shootout between LOCAL CITY Police and drug dealers, HAS NO RELATION to whatever happened to Epstein, in a FEDERAL PRISON, controlled & operated by the DOJ & William Barr.

  • Most violence in the US have been inspired by Donald Trump meaning the Pentagon should bomb the white house or trump tower

  • Yup another distraction from the Epstein case and the Democratic pedophile party. Setup some people for a fake drug raid.

  • this is not a mass shooting its just a muthafucka that does not want to go to jail, a mass shooting is when a krazy white guy kills multiple people for no reason

  • Kenji Sakamoto says:

    Violence has become a spectacle sadly due to the news. Bullets don't differentiate and will hit anyone or no matter what race, creed, color, ethnicity or national origin, sexual orientation and gender identification you are. In the end humanity should of been rid of hate or violent crimes since the 21st century. Sadly due to all of these things happening currently means we're basically going backwards in time and no matter despite how far we went forward much in technology and socially we're worse than any creature that barely has any control of its thoughts. This is horrible.

  • I don't understand how these officers got shot, or why these officers had to barricade themselves from the shooter. It sounds like the cops tangled with someone too tough for them.

  • We're not surprised the police were invented to keep the politicians safe. Because they lie and cheat steal the truth is out there.

  • Internet Marketing Maps says:

    One gunman, vs 300 cops, and 55 swat team members, and yet shamefully cops remain frozen with fear… Maybe they need to pay cops more money, or put a $10,000 bounty on the gunman's head, or offer free donuts for life, maybe that will get them off their fat butts and flush this shooter out. 👀

  • To urge the U.S. police to exercise restraint, use lethal force cautiously, and protect the rights and security of freedom defenders

  • This happens every day in Chicago. No national news. You can thank the DEMOCRAT party Peeloosely and Schmucker.
    Epatien was murdered

  • This goes to show that bad people would do anything they want. And no laws would stop them from doing evil acts….
    It's not the gun's, it's the evil inside of people that is the problem!!!!
    Open your eyes and mind people!!!!

  • AS Hillary Clinton said that “May we all stand in solidarity with the people as they speak out for democracy, freedom from repression, and a world they long to see.” congratulations!!!!! the shooter must be a fight of freedom!! Hillary Clinton supposed he is a good guy

  • banares hussain says:

    Anthing to cover up and sweep under the rug the Donald Trump scandal Jeffrey Eppstein named Trump as being involved it's why Eppstein taken out

  • It's not unbelievable that 30 officers discharged there weapons. If one shoot the other's do to. They gotta back up there brother in blue. I would have done the same thing. Thank you law enforcement!!!

  • Lefty MSM didn't have every detail of the shooter ready "White Supremacist Trump supporter with a Manifesto"

    FBI weren't on scene 2 minutes after started. That means this wasn't an orchestrated FF and the shooter is not white

  • Amusing. Sad and disturbing but amusing either way. Incidents and harm caused with the use of GUNS. Gun control and a ban on guns altogether is in order. Do we really need guns in this civilized age we're living in?

  • police need to "follow" the law toooo ( where is the BOND that is REQUIRED on allllllllllll these WARRANTS?) and NOT INVADE THE PRIVACY of HOMES it is called for THOUSANDS of YEARS , the 'DOMESTIC Authority Doctrine' ("We cannot just GO IN Someone else's Home; Land with or without cause, its a FORGOTTEN BELIEF of SANCTUARY ) and YES, U can JUSTIFY Water-Boarding allllllllllllll u want to it is the SAME Concept

  • It's alright, you all will get your Epstein story back. The gunman was black NOTHING TO SEE HERE!!! PAINT HIM WHITE AND YOU GOT A WORLD WIDE STORY THAT'LL LAST FOR DAY'S ON NEW'S CHANNELS.

  • Until police officers are held personally liable for their corruption / brutality…
    Until they stop investigating themselves…
    Until they stop stealing from Americans for victimless crimes… This won't end.

    next person killed could be you or one of your relatives or your friends or mine. we need to come to JesusChrist now.

  • god bless america says:
