At least six police officers have been shot and injured - none of them gravely - after a gunman opened fire on them in the centre of Philadelphia.

In the latest mass shooting to rock the US, television footage showed officers surrounding the shooter in a property in the city’s Nicetown-Tioga neighborhood.

“Suspect is still firing. SIXPPD Officers shot - at area hospitals with non life threatening injuries,” Philadelphia police department spokesman Eric Grip said on Twitter.

Narcotics related bust that went bad. I wouldn't call it a "mass shooting".

Dear ATS Readers, Writers,

Mate, this story has already been posted with this title:

Active Shooter - 4 Police shot in Philadelphia

The number got higher after initial post by OP.

Thanks for the great effort though.

The media counts it as one.


Also there is already a thread on this.


One thread in BAN and one in another forum. That’s the rule.

That was the NEWS that called it a "mass shooting", but come on, 6 officers shot, kind of semantics is it not?

Sounds more like a shoot-out than a mass shooting to me.

Well luckily no one is dead by the looks of it, no matter the terminology involved.

Sounds like a big drug gang bust

You can't legislate away evil.

There are horrendously evil people among us.

Disarming the 99.99% of Americans (AS A SOLUTION) who DO NOT DO THIS, because an .01% outlier does, is INHERENTLY DANGEROUS to the welfare of the US population.

Remember, you have NO RIGHT to be safe. PERIOD. There are no guarantees you ever will be. You can pursue it and do what you can, but it isn't a given.

Thinking that you do is also INHERENTLY DANGEROUS.

My condolences to all who have lost their lives because they either didn't choose to protect themselves or were stripped of the ability to do so.

Probably connections found from the previous massive drug bust in Philly in June being acted upon.

I think there is no definition of mass shooting but I would say 4 or more could qualify...perhaps 6?

Considering the guys shot six Police, i don't imagine it's going to lead anywhere but to gaol, that's if he even makes it that far alive.

As to the wounded officers, hopefully, a speedy recovery.

Is it still a potential hostage situation?

Pretty sure the large majority of people wouldn't consider a shootout with police a "mass shooting". Just those in the media and anyone else with a particular agenda.

I was thinking more of this being another cook-up by the antagonists to get our guns. :-)

Tell you one thing, they are going to be wanting his gun/guns, second amendment rights or otherwise.

But let's just hope it ends without anyone else being shot bar the mad bastard if need be.



Live stream(or was) if anyone is interested.
