Local media report that officers attempted to serve a homicide arrest warrant to a suspect who then barricaded himself inside a residence, which resulted in a shooting that caused the death of the suspect and the injury of three SWAT officers. The incident took place early on Wednesday morning in Philadelphia.

According to reports from FOX29 Philadelphia, the incident took place in the early morning hours on the 800 block of 10th Street in the Poplar section of North Philadelphia.

According to the station, two of the SWAT officers were shot in the legs while the third officer was struck in the chest by a bullet. The cops were reportedly in stable condition when they arrived at the hospital.

According to the station, witnesses reported seeing three people being brought away from the scene while cuffed.

Captain John Walker of the Philadelphia Police Department informed the station that cops had fired back at the suspect while he was inside the residence. He was later pronounced dead.

The subject of crime in Pennsylvania has grabbed the forefront of the race for the state’s fiercely fought US Senate seat, which is now occupied by Republican Senator Pat Toomey, who will be retiring soon.

Republican candidate and television personality Dr. Mehmet Oz has lately gained headway in the polls against Democratic contender John Fetterman, whom he has called “soft on crime” in political attacks.

Oz, 62, had cited Fetterman’s earlier support of liberal Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner, who is up for impeachment by state GOP legislators for his “willful refusal … to enforce existing laws.” Additional information regarding the incident was not immediately released by police.
