    Shootings in Philadelphia

    Several police officers shot with gunman active in Philadelphia - reports

    'Five officers are reported to have been shot by a man, who opened fire at law enforcement in Philadelphia’s Nicetown-Tioga section Wednesday afternoon. Media are urged to pull back from the area.

    The incident began unfolding at 4.30 pm local time, when police responded to a call related to "narcotics activity,"according to Philadelphia Police Captain Sekou Kinebrew.

    The scene remains active, with police calling on residents and media to stay clear. The nearby area was put on lockdown with officers directing the traffic away.'


    *UPDATE*

    Police in standoff with barricaded shooter who wounded 6 Philadelphia officers; 2 officers trapped

    (CNN) - Police have been in an hourslong standoff with a barricaded suspect who they say shot six officers on Wednesday in a North Philadelphia neighborhood.

    Two officers are trapped inside the row house, Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross Jr. told reporters. He said he believed "they're OK," but declined to say more out of concern for their safety.

    More than four hours after officers swarmed to the scene and the standoff began, negotiators are trying to to communicate with the shooter, but the gunman only picks up the phone without answering, Ross said Wednesday night.
