2 Gunmen Open Fire At 3 Plainclothes Philadelphia Police Officers In Cedarbrook, Authorities Say

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The search continues for two people who Philadelphia police say opened fire on three plainclothes officers in the city’s Cedarbrook neighborhood on Friday night. The incident happened shortly after 8 p.m. at the intersection of Fayette and Sharpnack Streets.

“An incredibly dangerous, outrageous situation,” Philadelphia Police Sgt. Eric Gripp said.

Police say one officer noticed a man on a bicycle slowly riding near them. When the officers rolled down the window to ask if he was OK, authorities say the man yelled an expletive and fired on the car, striking it several times.

“Drove away approximately 50 feet before they crashed their car up against a cyclone fence,” Gripp said. “Their vehicle was struck several times. There were three plainclothes officers inside the car. Two male officers in the front, a female officer riding in the back. The driver, it appears that one of the bullets penetrated the vehicle, went through the driver’s seat and stopped by his bulletproof vest.”

A female officer in the backseat suffered a cut on her leg, according to police, but it’s unclear if she was struck by shrapnel or broken glass.

Authorities say the officers got out of the vehicle and exchanged gunfire with the man. While that was happening, police another man down the street started firing at the officers.

All three officers are expected to be OK.

Authorities say the two suspects fled the scene. The investigation remains ongoing.

Officials Identify 1 Of 2 Suspects Police Say Opened Fire On Plainclothes Officers In Cedarbrook

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Officials have identified one of the two suspects Philadelphia police say opened fire on three plainclothes officers in the city’s Cedarbrook neighborhood on Friday night. Police say Jeffione Thomas is wanted for the attempted murder of Philadelphia police officers.

Police say the last known address for Thomas was in the 7800 block of Fayette Street. There is an active warrant out for Thomas’ arrest.

The officers were on a plainclothes assignment in Cedarbrook when a man, police believe to be Thomas, was riding a bicycle and fired a gun at their SUV.

As police exchanged fire with him, another man down the street started firing at the officers.

Two of the officers suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

A third officer was not hurt.

The Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5 is offering a $10,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest of suspects involved in this incident.

“It’s outrageous and disgusting when two thugs think it’s OK to open fire on three undercover narcotics officers,” said FOP Lodge #5 President, John McNesby. “Our officers were ambushed for simply doing their jobs, working to get drugs and guns off our streets.” “This brazen disrespect of law enforcement is unacceptable.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 215-686-8477.
