AN 80-year-old man fired nine shots at cops in Upper Darby on Wednesday night because he had a bone to pick with the Inquirer , police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said.

Police responded to Joseph Smith's apartment at the Lansdowne Towers, on Providence Road near Industrial Park Drive, about 7:45 p.m. after he called 9-1-1 and threatened to kill himself and the dispatcher, Chitwood said.
