Once again, for those of you not paying attention: If you try to take a Philadelphia Police officer’s gun, you’re gonna pay for it.
PHILADELPHIA ― A Philadelphia Police officer was injured and two suspects were wounded following a pursuit in the Port Richmond section of the city Tuesday.
Police were called to the 2900 block of Salmon Street after reports of a suspect with a gun just before 3 p.m. Arriving officers began pursuit of a red minivan matching the description of eyewitness reports.
The minivan crashed into a tree a short time later and the suspects attempted to flee on foot.
An officer was involved with a brief struggle with one of the suspects, which resulted with the suspect being shot in the stomach.
“The officer’s training is to retain that gun at all costs,” said Philadelphia Police Lieutenant Frank Vanore. “One of the suspects was hit one time and that was from the officer’s gun.” (H/T - CBS3)
Officer unharmed. Thug shot in the stomach. Sounds like a good job to me.
