6 police shot in standoff that 'could have been far worse'

A gunman barricaded himself inside a Philadelphia rowhouse for 7½ hours, firing on police and wounding six in a standoff that trapped two officers and paralyzed a neighborhood, 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, despite the gunman firing over 100 rounds. It “could have been far worse,” Ross said Thursday outside the Philadelphia Police Department.
