A gunman suspected of being motivated by hatred for law enforcement killed a woman and wounded two police officers and three civilians in Philadelphia before he was shot and killed by police.
Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross said police found what he described a “rambling” note at the scene of the Friday night rampage. Police think the gunman wrote the note, which expressed hatred for the police and named a probation officer.
“This is a completely bizarre situation,” Ross said.
A police chase and shootout through city streets began about 11:20 p.m. Friday (0320 GMT Saturday) after Sergeant Sylvia Young, a 19-year veteran of the Philadelphia Police Department, was ambushed while sitting in her patrol car.
