At least six police officers were shot in the Nicetown-Tioga section of Philadelphia on Wednesday afternoon after a gunman started opening fire as they served a warrant. The unidentified male suspect was apprehended early Thursday after an hours-long standoff, police say. There were two police officers inside with the suspect during the standoff, but authorities said SWAT officers were able to get them out. The injured officers are all expected to recover. An additional officer was also injured in a car accident that took place during the incident, and received treatment. Philadelphia Police Capt. Sekou Kinebrew said officers were first called to the scene for narcotics activity.
