A suspect has been arrested after he barricaded himself for hours in a North Philadelphia home in a shooting standoff that left six officers wounded, police said.
“Suspect is in custody. SWAT is still clearing the house,” Philadelphia Police Sgt. Eric Gripp tweeted early Thursday.
The shooting started at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday and was followed by a standoff that lasted nearly eight hours.
All six officers who were shot have been released from area hospitals, tweeted Sgt. Eric Gripp, a spokesman for the department’s public affairs office. He also said one other officer sustained injuries in a vehicle crash related to the incident.
