Police took on gunfire while dragging two other wounded officers to safety during a shooting at a working house fire in East Lansdowne, (near Philly) Pennsylvania, this afternoon.
The ordeal began at 3:47 p.m. when an East Lansdowne Police Officer and a Lansdowne Police Officer responded to a report of an 11-year-old girl being shot on Lewis Avenue in East Lansdowne.
Both officers were shot once. Responding Upper Darby police officers dragged both of the wounded officers to safety as the gunman continued to fire.
At some point the fire was brought under control by Firefighters. Both Police Officers were taken to the hospital and are in stable condition.
The gunfire eventually stopped and by 6 p.m. the fire was mostly under control. Police were unsure if the gunman was still inside the house. More to follow.
