Another Police-Involved Shooting In Kensington

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – For the second time in eight hours, Philadelphia police officers were shot at and had to return fire in the same neighborhood.

The latest incident occurred at about 2am Tuesday morning. There was a call about a shooting on East Ontario Street in Kensington.  Officials say two plainclothes officers, driving in an unmarked car, responded after immediately seeing a man carrying a stainless steel .45-caliber revolver.

“The officers ordered the male, several times, to drop the weapon. The male pointed the weapon at the officers and fired at least one time,” said chief inspector Scott Small.

Authorities say the officers then chased the suspect to East Thayer Street, where there was another exchange of gunfire. This time, the suspect (right) was outgunned and put down.

“The suspect was shot at least two times in the stomach. The suspect collapsed in the 600 block of East Thayer and he dropped his handgun,” Small explained. Small said the suspect, later identified as Jose Delvalle, was in critical condition.

It was the second police-involved shooting for officers in the city’s 24th police district in less than eight hours. (see related story)

    Do you think he had a carry permit? i’m just wondering since there seems to be some concern in council over people getting carry permitsw. would be nice to see some investigative reporting for follow up story on this, i.e. did he have a permit, where did he obtain the gun? did he buy it or was is a straw purchase. just so the info is out there so both council and public know the facts.

    Thank you Philadelphia PD for removing this individual from the streets.

    The above comment might sound like the barely literate grunting of a mental patient until you realize it was written by an actual monkey, Bonzo Boy. Good job, Bonzo, you’re the Einstein of chimps!
