Officer shot by friendly fire in North Philadelphia
I saw cops flying all over the place last night while working, I guess this was why ...

Quote:NORTH PHILADELPHIA - September 11, 2012 (WPVI) -- A police officer is expected to be released from the hospital today after a close call while on duty. He was shot at a North Philadelphia gas station Tuesday night.

Officer Jose Roman was hit by friendly fire. He was brought to Hahnemann University Hospital strictly as a precaution and expected to be just fine.
Police tell Action News that 19 year veteran's partner fired his Benelli Shotgun and some of the pellets from that shotgun either ricocheted off the ground or another vehicle, hitting Roman in his protective vest.

Glad he's okay, but I'm not buying that it was a ricochet. The fact that he was hit by multiple pellets from the same shot, and yet the suspect had a direct hit, paints a different story.
I'd like to see all of the videos for this. A first, this sounded similar to every OC encounter in Philthy. I honestly wonder if the people in the car really drew on the cops or if it is part of a cover-up... It could be legitimate, but...
We can certainly chalk this up in the "body armor prevents injury even from a 00 buckshot blast" department.

Lol. Yes we can, but was he wearing plates? Wink I doubt he was.
I heard he had duct taped some plates to his back for protection vs .338 Lapua... Wink
