“Ok, the guy’s still firing out the bedroom window”
It sounds like cops are getting in cops way. There’s a lot of them & a guy shooting. Having trouble getting shot cops to medics because... you know, SHOOTING. #PhillyFUBAR
“Shooter’s still in the dining room talking”
‘STAIRWELL: “Shooter has something propped up against the door. He’s on a cellphone talking to his girlfriend”’ #PhillyFUBAR
NEW INFO: 2 guys w/guns
Two guys with two guns and at least 2 PRISONERS holed up. COPS every-fucking-where. You have to hear it to believe it.
But then, “Any officers discharge a handgun?” This gets asked by several people for several minutes.
“Any officer that DID NOT discharge a handgun, resume.”
“We got 8 officers with 8 long guns”
“SWATs out back. They’re trying to get through the rear gate”
“I need the officers at Eerie to clear out”
They’re calling Homeland Security for a hostage negotiator
“I got a contingency of ATF”
“SHOTS FIRED. HE’S FIRING OUT THE BACK! OFFICER SHOT! WE GOT ANOTHER OFFICER SHOT! HE’S NOW GOT A LONG GUN”
(Shot Officer is ok. Minor)
“All patrolmen, all personnel, GET OUT OF THE REAR.”
“The the officers to hold their fire”
“We got long guns up and down ___ and Butler”
“I got another discharging officer, I’m sending him—“
So, basically, two guys holed up in a house with prisoners. They’re barricaded in, shooting at the gazillion cops. DHS hostage negotiator being called.
4? officers injured
OH SHIT. I heard those. (More shots.) A quick burst, is all. Sounds like small caliber.
The FAA is closing the immediate airspace. I think for a mile. Here’s a clip of some shots. Lotsa cops
It also means that my information channel just got sanitized. Not entirely, but a lot.
👀 COPS EVERYWHERE 🔇
News will be happy.
They’ve got the GF & are trying to see if they/she can see the suspect from their feed. Again, I’m not particularly optimistic w/ this group & tech.
Tell Wolf we’re in 2019. They’ve got eyes and ears. I know the audio is up & they can hear him. No word on eyes. #PhiladelphiaShooting
They’re (finally) seriously making sure the radio is locked down. They have to be super tight because they’re using the radio to communicate w/ him. Our well went dry. Bye. #Phillyshooting
