Philadelphia Shooting Injures 9 Officers, 6 Shot; Suspect Surrenders After Hours-Long Standoff
6 ABC News in Philadelphia reports on the aftermath of the standoff and shooting of Philadelphia police officers by suspect Maurice Hill (seen in his above mugshot).
PHILADELPHIA -- A gunman barricaded himself inside a Philadelphia rowhouse for 7 hours, firing on police and wounding six in a dramatic standoff that trapped two officers all while the commissioner and the shooter's attorney tried to negotiate a surrender.
Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross expressed amazement that the standoff, which began Wednesday when officers attempted to serve a drug warrant, ended with no one dead and no life-threatening injuries.
