MORE THAN 40 shots were fired in two heated gunbattles last night, one of which took place between a cop and an armed man, police said.
In that incident, on Louden Street near Mascher in Feltonville, the 21-year-old was struck once in his shoulder, and a second bullet grazed his head, Chief Inspector Scott Small said.
He's in stable condition at Temple University Hospital, where he was taken by the same officers he took aim at just before 5:30 p.m., Small said.
Small gave the following account:
Two officers were assisting representatives from the Department of Human Services at an unrelated house on Palethorp Street near Louden when they heard gunfire.
