Philadelphia, USA, wary of gun battle for eight hours

On the afternoon of the 14th, local time, a large-scale shooting incident broke out in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA: Several police officers were shot and wounded by drug-related drugs. The intensity of the shooting scene was comparable to that of the “war zone.” After eight hours of confrontation, until the early morning of the 15th, the murderers who were recalcitrant finally came to the fore. Since August, a large number of large-scale shooting incidents have occurred in the United States. The “Americans who do not control guns” have almost achieved “gun battles every day.” “When is this the end?” In the face of the severe gun violence situation, California Senator He Jinli issued such a scream.

According to CNN’s report on the 15th, at 4 o’clock on the 14th, the Philadelphia Police Department’s anti-drug department received a search warrant and was ordered to go to a community in the north of the city to handle the case. Unexpectedly, the case handlers were immediately attacked by gunmen after arriving at the designated house. At that time, several police officers had entered the house and went down the stairs to the second floor, trying to find the suspect. The fierce gunman carried an AK-47 automatic rifle and fired directly from the first floor. A number of police officers attacked the guns and ran to the outdoor safety zone along the door and window, but two police officers were trapped on the second floor of the house. After that, they were wary of the long-term confrontation between the two sides.

CBS reported that from 4:30 to 8:00 that day, the two sides exchanged fire, and the gunshots were very dense. The case was like a “war zone”. The traffic on the street was chaotic. About 100 police officers directly participated in the operation. Some residents nearby said they heard at least 100 gunshots. A veteran said that the gun battle could cause people to have “PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).”

During the incident, a total of six people were injured in the Philadelphia police, one of them was injured in the head; another police officer was injured in a traffic accident on the way to the scene. US President Trump heard the report of the incident.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Ross said that the police wanted to resolve the matter peacefully. He himself tried to communicate with the gunmen, but the stubborn gunmen had refused to talk, only madly shooting at the police, the police team’s vehicles and trying to negotiate. The Secretary himself is within his firepower. Some media revealed that the gunmen had tried to conduct a live broadcast on the Internet during the confrontation with the police. At around 1:15 local time on the 15th, the gunman finally surrendered to the police, and it was nearly eight hours since the incident.

According to the local media “Philadelphia Enquiry”, the gunman named Maurice Hill, a 36-year-old criminal with a long list of criminal records, was already a “frequent guest” at the age of 18. His crimes include illegal armed, drug trafficking and serious injuries. Statistics on “gun violence files” by US non-profit organizations show that since August, large-scale shooting incidents across the United States have occurred frequently, and the 14th gun incident has been the 19th this month.

“It is very rare for police officers to encounter such a level of resilience in normal cases,” said Titus, a professor at the John J. Criminal Justice College in New York, in an interview with the New York Times. The current trend is that suspects are becoming more and more ” Deadly, the difficulty of law enforcement is increasing day by day.

Who gave the murderer and the police “hard”? After the incident, the gun was once again the focus of public opinion. Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenny called out, “Our police officers need more help and protection.” He said that an unknown gunman could have nearly “unlimited ammo reserves” and spent hours on the police. Fire suppression, this situation “thinking makes people angry.” California Democratic Senator He Jinli was asked about the gun case when interviewed by CNN. She responded that 90% of the “problem guns” in the United States are from 5% of dealers, and the United States can strictly control the sales channels of guns. Regarding the issue of gun violence, the United States does not lack a response plan and has witnessed enough tragedies, but the effective firearms security bill is delayed. She said that if she is elected president, she will pass a strict gun control bill within 100 days of her appointment. In this regard, the US “City Hall” magazine and other conservative media satirized that the Democratic Party is using the shooting incident to “play the title.”
