Onlookers reportedly taunted and threw things at Philadelphia police on Wednesday night, Aug. 14, amid a wild shootout and subsequent standoff that saw six police officers wounded and video posted online shows one woman shoving a police officer on his way to the scene.

CBS Philadelphia reporter Alexandria Hoff tweeted Wednesday night how a crowd of people bordering the blocked off active-shooter scene allegedly harassed officers.

Another video posted by Breaking911 shows one woman shoving a police officer from behind as he passes through the crowd. Others in the crowd laugh, yell, and throw objects at police officers as they enter the blocked off area amid the active standoff scene.

Police say officers with the Narcotics Strike Force were serving a warrant related to narcotics at the multifamily home in the Nicetown-Tioga section when things “went awry almost immediately,” and the suspect opened fire, according to police.

The dramatic shootout in Philadelphia had begun at around 4:30 p.m. and stretched on for more than eight hours as six officers were wounded, though none with life-threatening injuries. Two officers became trapped on the second floor of the building for hours before being freed by SWAT team members.

The gunman, identified as 36-year-old Maurice Hill, eventually surrendered and was taken into custody just after 12 a.m. Thursday.
