Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross addresses media at a press conference on Jan. 8, 2016, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
PHILADELPHIA -- A “rambling” note expressing hatred for police was found after a man opened fire on a Philadelphia police officer then went on a shooting spree, injuring a second officer, killing a woman and wounding three other people before he was shot and killed by police in an alley, authorities said Saturday.
Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross said police found what he called a “rambling” note at the scene of the Friday overnight rampage that police believe was written by the gunman and that expressed hatred toward law enforcement and named a probation officer.
Ross said police believe only the one gunman was involved in the violent events, which he described as “completely bizarre.”
The wild chase and shootout through the streets of Philadelphia began about 11:20 p.m. Friday when Sgt. Sylvia Young was ambushed while sitting in her patrol car; she was shot a number of times in the arm and protective vest, Ross said.
Overnight, Ross said that a male suspect approached Young’s vehicle and fired into her car without saying anything, CBS Philadelphia station KYW-TV reports​.      VIDEO
