2 officers shot during Fourth of July festivities in Philadelphia, officials say

PHILADELPHIA — Two police officers were shot near the end of a July 4th fireworks display in Philadelphia.

One officer suffered a grazing wound. The condition of the other officer was not immediately known. Both were taken to Jefferson University Hospital for treatment, according to us sister station WPVI.

The shooting took place in Center City on Monday night. The city’s Office of Emergency Management advised via Twitter to avoid the area.

This marks at least the second incident of gun violence during an Independence Day celebration in the United States, after at least six were killed in a shooting at a parade in Highland Park, Illinois.
