Man In 'Muslim Garb' Ambushes Philly Police Officer

ABC News reported that a man who ambushed a police officer sitting in his patrol car in West Philadelphia late last night was dressed in “Muslim garb.” 

According to CBS, the man said he shot Officer Jesse Hartnett in the name of Islam. He hit the officer, who’s expected to make a full recovery, three times in the arm. From ABC:

The moments immediately following the shooting were also captured in a dramatic recording of police radio calls obtained by Action News overnight.

“I’m shot! I’m bleeding heavily!” Hartnett was heard saying.

Ross said investigators believe he is a 30-year-old man from Yeadon, and that they were still working to confirm his identity.
