Philadelphia Police Shoot Armed Suspect

Chalk up another win for the good guys.

PHILADELPHIA -- A man being investigated after a car stop got out, pulled a gun and fired at officers before being shot himself Monday night in North Philadelphia, police said.

The incident occurred shortly before 7 p.m. at 27th and Cumberland streets in North Philadelphia.

Police said no officers were injured.

According to police, uniformed officers stopped a vehicle at that location and were investigating a man in his 20s who was inside the car. At one point, the man exited the car, produced a gun and allegedly fired toward the officers.

One officer returned fire and struck the man in the head, police said. He was taken Temple University Hospital and later listed in critical condition.

Police said a weapon was recovered at the scene. (H/T - NBC10)

So, let's see; we have a gun-toting toad shot in the pumpkin, a weapon recovered at the scene, and no Philly police officers injured. Sounds like a terrific day at the office to me!

For those of you new to SYLG, allow me to explain the Golden Rule:

If you shoot at a Philadelphia police officer, you will be met with deadly force!

Here endeth the lesson.
