Two Law Enforcement Officers Were Shot During a Fourth of July Celebration in Philadelphia

According to the authorities, the incident occurred just before 10 p.m., close to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. 

The Benjamin Franklin Parkway, where thousands of people had congregated for a music and fireworks display, had been closed off by the police. 

After the gunfire went out, the audience was seen running in different directions. Officers issued the directive to remain in place and take cover. 

A bullet brushed the head of one cop while the second officer was struck in the shoulder. Both officers were injured. 

Both were transported to the hospital, but they were eventually allowed to go home. 

The investigation into who and why the rounds were fired by the police is still ongoing. 

"At this point, it's still too early to tell. We don't know if this was a ricochet from celebratory gunfire.
