PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia police have arrested 23-year-old Joshua Taylor on Tuesday.

On April 25, Taylor was involved with officer-involved shooting, which took place in the Frankford section of the city. (See related story…)

According to officials, Taylor was shot in the chest in the 4600 Block of Worth Street.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said the off-duty officer observed Taylor coming out of his house with a gun in his hand. The officer said he confronted Taylor as to why he had the gun, and then allegedly Taylor turned on the officer and the officer fired his weapon.

But witnesses said the officer never identified himself as a cop and walked into Taylor’s home and shot him.

Philadelphia police are charging Taylor for alleged attempted murder, aggravated assault, simple assault and other related offenses.
