by Jake Dima


Six police officers were shot in an active shooter situation in the Tioga-Nicetown section of Philadelphia Wednesday, officials said.

Officers gathered by the 3700 block of North 15th Street in an apparent standoff. Police operators received a series of distress calls around 4:30 p.m. local time, according to NBC Philadelphia.

A witness told ABC’s Philadelphia station WPVI she heard over 100 gunshots. Temple University is close by and its Health Sciences Center Campus was reportedly under lockdown.

“Officer calls for everything you got. SWAT, long gun,” a law enforcement officer can be heard saying on audio obtained via Broadcastify. “I got an officer shot.”

Democratic Mayor Jim Kenney reportedly went to a local hospital where several wounded officers had been transported, NBC 10 reported.
