PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Authorities say a Philadelphia police officer is recovering after he was shot several times during an ambush late Thursday night in West Philadelphia.

Philadelphia police commissioner Richard Ross says the officer, identified as 33-year-old Jesse Hartnett, was sitting in his patrol car around 11:30 p.m. at 60th and Spruce Streets when a gunman fired nearly a dozen shots through the driver’s side of the car.


“Shots fired! I’m shot! I’m bleeding heavily!” Officer Hartnett was heard yelling on police radio.

Police are calling it an “attempted assassination.”

During a press conference, Commissioner Ross said the gun used in the attack was a stolen police firearm.

“It was stolen back in October of 2013. It was reported, and that is one of the things you regret the most when an officer’s gun is stolen, when it is used against one of your own.”

Commissioner Ross says the suspect has given a full confession, saying he did it in the name of Islam.

“According to him, police bend laws that are contrary to the teachings of the Quran.”

Sources say the suspect’s full confession of the alleged attack was written down and recorded on video.


Police identify the suspect as 30-year-old Edward Archer, of Yeadon.

“When you look at the video, this is one of the scariest things I’ve ever seen,” Commissioner Ross said. “This guy tried to execute the police officer. The police officer had no idea he was coming. It’s amazing he’s alive.”

“We’re thankful to God he’s here today because it easily could’ve been a police funeral.”

Hartnett was taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center where he underwent surgery for a broken arm. Ross says the officer’s arm suffered significant damage and that he has a long road to recovery, but he is expected to be okay. :)

His father, Robert Hartnett said, “It’s going to be a tough road, but he’s a tough guy. I told him I love him, and I’m proud of him and he is an excellent person.”

Hartnett returned fire and struck Archer. He tried to escape on foot, authorities say, but was quickly caught by responding officers.

He was transported to the University of Pennsylvania in where he was treated for a gunshot wound to his buttocks, police say.

Sources say the wounded officer told investigators that Archer walked up to the car, appeared to be about to ask for directions when he pulled a 9 mm and opened up with shots.

Mayor of Philadelphia Jim Kenney also spoke at the press conference held Friday afternoon.

“Our main concern at the moment today is the well being, the health, and the recovery and rehabilitation of Officer Hartnett. Obviously you can see the bravery that he displayed,” said Mayor Kenney.

“I want to compliment homicide division, the police department for their tremendous work, their ongoing every day tremendous work but especially in this particular case.”

Mayor Kenney said, “In no way shape or form does anyone in this room believe that Islam or the teaching of Islam has anything to do with what you’ve seen on the screen.”

Commie Mayor Banana Nose Kenney said of the shooting, “It is abhorrent. It is terrible and it does not represent the religion in any way, shape or form or any of its teachings.” :mad:

He continued, “This is a criminal with a stolen gun who tried to kill one of our officers. It has nothing to do with being a Muslim or following the Islamic faith.” :mad:

Philadelphia’s Muslim community is reacting to the shooting. Community activist Bilal Quayyum says he has talked to other Muslims in the city about the alleged actions of Archer, and Quayyum says they are “Very upset that he would proclaim a violent act against an individual in the name of Islam is not what we believe and is a negative.”

He says there have been other religious fanatics who have committed violent acts, but it appears that Muslims are getting the most attention when something like this happens. Quayyum adds that Muslims in Philadelphia are praying for the recovery of Officer Hartnett.

Opening Arguments Begin In Trial Of Suspect In Ambush Of Philly Officer

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Opening arguments are set to begin Thursday in a jury trial for a man who authorities say confessed to shooting and wounding an on-duty Philadelphia police officer in the name of ISIS.

Chilling video and audio from the night of Jan. 7, 2016 shows a man prosecutors say is Edward Archer, ambushing Officer Jesse Hartnett’s patrol car in West Philadelphia.

Despite heavy blood loss from the three gunshot wounds to his left arm, Hartnett managed to call for help, chase, shoot and capture Archer.

In a taped statement, Archer confessed to the crime and told investigators he did it in the name of ISIS.

Archer’s lawyers filed a motion to suppress that statement, arguing that detectives didn’t properly inform their client of his Miranda rights. But Wednesday, Judge Leon Tucker disagreed, allowing the confession to be used as evidence as the trial moves forward Thursday.

Despite many delays over the past two years, this very high-profile case is finally going to trial.

Archer’s lawyers argued last month that he is not mentally fit to stand trial, citing erratic behavior and a refusal to undergo three mental evaluations. :rolleyes: The judge ruled against them. :D

Archer faces several charges, including attempted murder and aggravated assault.
