Philadelphia Police Officer Jesse Hartnett was shot three times and suffered “some very serious injuries that will require multiple surgeries.” Amazingly, Harnett, a five year veteran of the force, managed to return fire as reported at CNN.

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

CBS Philly reported:

“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.”

Shockingly, District Attorney Seth Williams was actually quoted as saying,

“I’m very thankful the officer is alive. This shows us the need for smarter laws when it relates to guns on the street.”

The suspect Edward Archer, 30, of Yeadon, who reportedly used a stolen police weapon, later said to investigators:

“I follow Allah. I pledge my allegiance to the Islamic State and that’s why I did what a did.”

According to Heavy, Archer told his mother that “police bend laws that are contrary to the teachings of the Quran.”

Not surprisingly, Philly.com initially reported that although the suspect was wearing “Muslim garb,” “…officials have not said if they believe religion was a factor.”

UPDATED: Updated article to reflect Heavy quote & that Archer reportedly used a stolen police gun.

    ========================
    HOW would smarter gun laws have stopped this shooting? Muslims hate white cops and they can acquire stolen guns just as easily as a white or black man can. It is the society we live in today. EVIL!

    DEPORT ALL MUSLIMS out of the United States prior to this shooting and then in doing so, this would have prevented this officer from being shot.
