Philadelphia Police Sergeant Shot And Killed

(Photo of the scene courtesy of CBS3.)

Apparently, Sergeant Stephen Liczbinski was ambushed during a bank robbery in my old district.

According to Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey, at least two armed men robbed the Bank of America branch inside the Shop Rite located at 3547 Aramingo Avenue around 11:26 a.m. Ramsey says there may have been a third suspect involved in the hold up.

The suspects fled in a vehicle described as a black or blue Jeep.

An officer, identified as Sergeant Steve Liczbinski from the 24th District, encountered the vehicle in the 2500 block of E. Schiller Street. At least one of the suspects fired shots at Liczbinski, fatally wounding the officer.

Sgt. Liczbinski was shot three times, suffering wounds to the face and abdomen. He was rushed to Northeast Hospital then transferred to Temple University Hospital, where he later died.

One suspect was shot in the 500 block of E. Louden Street and later died at Einstein Medical Center.

The second suspect, and a possible third, are still at large. Police are conducting an extensive search for the suspects and interviewing possible witnesses.

The suspects are described as 3 black males with dreadlock wigs, one standing at 6'3" - 6'5" and the other two at 6'1". They were reportedly wearing female Muslim garb.

Sergeant Steve Liczbinski, a 12-year veteran of the department, was recently promoted to the rank of sergeant. Liczbinski is survived by his wife Michele, sons Matt and Stephen, and daughter Amber. (H/T - 6ABC)

The doers need to be found and killed. End of message.

Please pray for the sergeant's family.
