PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Latest on a Friday night shooting rampage in Philadelphia that left two police officers wounded, one woman dead, and three other people injured. The suspect was later killed by police. (all times local):
Philadelphia police say a note expressing hatred toward law enforcement was found after a man ambushed a police officer then went on a shooting rampage, injuring a second officer, killing one woman and injuring three other people. The suspect was shot and killed by police.
Commissioner Richard Ross said, “This is a completely bizarre situation.”
Ross told reporters Saturday that police found what he called a “rambling” note at the scene they believe was written by the still-unidentified gunman expressing hatred toward police and naming a probation officer. He said police believe only the gunman was involved.
He said the man ambushed Sgt. Sylvia Young, striking her several times in the arm and protective vest, and later wounding Ed Miller of the University of Pennsylvania police force. Both were in stable condition Saturday.
Police said the man also fired into a bar, hitting a security guard, grabbed a woman and shot her, then fired into a car, killing a woman and critically injuring a man before he was shot and killed by police in an alley.
