Some Onlookers Throw Trash at Philadelphia Cops Amid Standoff

Philadelphia police were being taunted and heckled during Wednesday’s wild eight-hour siege with a gunman in the city. Some onlookers surrounded the officers, pelting them with garbage. One cop was even shoved. This all happened as other officers dealt with a man firing at them who wounded six officers. Larry Artis, who served during the Iraq War, watched the terrifying gunplay from his bedroom window. He said he was afraid, adding, “I had my wife on the floor ducking.”
