PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Police say a man was shot by a police officer after attacking officers with a screwdriver in a police station in north Philadelphia.
Police said the man, who was wearing a mask, entered the lobby of the 39th police district building at about 9:20 a.m. Wednesday.
Sgt. Eric Gripp said an officer opened a side door to try to hear what the man was saying, and he lunged inside with a screwdriver and attacked officers. One officer fired, striking the man in the torso.
The 23-year-old suspect was taken to Temple University Hospital in critical condition.
One officer had a head injury and another an elbow injury.
