Officers shot in West Philly ambush recovering well, one discharged from hospital

- Sources tell FOX 29 Sergeant Young could leave Penn Presbyterian Hospital at any time, remarkable considering she was shot at 18 times at close range just two nights ago!

Sources also confirm to FOX 29 the University of Pennsylvania officer wounded alongside Young left the hospital this morning.

It was early Sunday morning to little fanfare that University of Pennsylvania police officer Eddie Miller left Penn Presbyterian Hospital.

Hours after someone snapped this bedside photo of the wounded cop with members of the Philadelphia Eagles, tweeted by the Fraternal Order of Police.

Miller was shot during a gun battle with 25 year old Nicholas Glenn, the career criminal who authorities say ambushed Philadelphia Police Sergeant Sylvia Young as the 19 year veteran sat in her patrol car Friday night. Glenn then went on a shooting spree in West Philadelphia killing a 25 year old bystander and wounding 3 others before he was shot dead by police.

A chilling police radio dispatch records the aftermath of that rampage.

"I'm at the McDonald's on 51st. Help me please!"

Young was hit several times in the arm.

Officials calling her survival nothing short of a miracle.

Even as Philadelphia reeled from what Police Commissioner Richard Ross described as a horrific night--himself expressing disbelief and anger at the gun violence plaguing the city--it took exactly 24 hours for police officers to face gunfire yet again.

This time the violence was in South Philadelphia where authorities attempting to stop a group who smelled of marijuana were shot at 3 times. The officers were not hurt, did not return fire and arrested a 19 year old man in that incident.
