Philadelphia Police said one of their own was injured by broken glass during a shooting in Southwest Philadelphia overnight. According to a 6 ABC ACTION NEWS the incident happened at around 2:30 a.m. in the area of 81st Street & Lyons Avenue.
Police said the undercover officer was sitting in his unmarked vehicle at the time the driver’s side door was hit by a bullet, ultimately cracking the glass, and injuring the undercover cop. Reports said the officer initially thought he’d been shot because of the amount of blood he was losing. Doctors later determined that he’d just been cut by the glass shards. The officer was last reported to be in stable condition.
No word on if the officer was targeted or hit by random gunfire aimed elsewhere. No suspects have been named and no arrests have been made so far.
