PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – An erratic driver was shot by an off-duty officer in South Philadelphia Monday morning after police say the driver was attempting to run over pedestrians.
Philadelphia police say around 7:30 a.m. the driver was on Broad and Bigler Streets when he struck a pedestrian and was attempting to run over more.
An off-duty police captain then pulled his service weapon and shot the driver in the head, according to police.
Police say the pedestrian that was injured was taken to a local hospital in critical condition. The driver is also said to be in serious condition.
Another article referred to the driver as “rampaging” as opposed to “erratic”.
Lets watch out for this one. It certainly smells like an act of jihad. If it wasn’t it was certainly inspired by them.
