“It’s a nice day and clearly there’s a convention going on and obviously, people coming in and out of the hotels with weddings and things going on in the city so there was a decent amount of people walking around the area,” Philadelphia Police Capt. John Walker said. “And when people see a person running down the street with blood dripping from his arm – and he went pretty long, almost a mile running with an injury – it concerns a lot of people.”
