PHILADELPHIA - For eight hours, Philadelphia Police responded to a standoff in North Philly that resulted in six Philadelphia police officers being shot and two held hostage Wednesday afternoon.
A massive police presence occupied the surrounding area to ensure the safety of residents but their presence was met with insults, ridicule and even shoving.
A Twitter user, outraged by what she had witnessed in the treatment of the Philadelphia Police officers, shared the video which has garnered nearly 2 million views.
"Yelling, screaming and throwing things at officers that have PROTECTED YOU for 4 hours during an active shooting? Classy," she tweeted with the video.
The chaotic scene began when officers attempted to serve a narcotics warrant on the 3700 block of North 15th Street around 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
During the standoff, six officers were shot but ultimately released from local hospitals after being treated for non-life threatening injuries in the early hours of Thursday morning.
The gunman, identified as 36-year-old Maurice Hill, surrendered to police shortly after midnight. Hill was taken to Temple University Hospital where he was treated and released.
