According to CBSPhilly, U.S. Marshals were serving a warrant in the city’s Oxford Circle neighborhood when gunfire reportedly broke out shortly after 10 a.m.
The report says the shots were fired at Frontenac and Hellerman streets after a person allegedly pointed a gun at authorities serving a warrant. It adds that no members of the U.S. Marshal federal law enforcement agency or local police officers were harmed.
Several questions remain unanswered at this time, including whether the individual was being served a warrant.
