Police shot and wounded a man who they say fired at least eight shots at Temple University security officers in North Philadelphia early Tuesday morning.
The mayhem started when the 32-year-old suspect rear-ended an SUV being driven by a PGW worker on Norris Street near 10th around 2 a.m., police said. When four Temple security officers on bicycles responded to the accident, the suspect got out of his car, pulled a .45-caliber semiautomatic handgun on them and opened fire, Chief Inspector Scott Small said.
The officers called for backup, and police from the 22nd District, headquartered at 17th and Montgomery, arrived at the scene and spotted the suspect still wielding the gun, according to investigators.
