Philadelphia police officer Jesse Hartnett was ambushed by a man who proclaimed allegiance to ISIS Thursday night, was wounded and then gave chase, shooting the jihadist.
In a news conference on Friday, Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross said the jihadist shot multiple rounds with a 9mm handgun from close range. He struck the officer three times in the left arm. (RELATED: Islamist Ambushes Philly Cop With Stolen Police Firearm)
