Police Anticop note found at scene of deadly rampage

first_imgPHILADELPHIA — A “rambling” note expressing hatred for police was found after a man opened fire on a Philadelphia police officer then went on a shooting spree, injuring a second officer, killing a woman and wounding three other people before he was shot and killed by police in an alley, authorities said Saturday.Police Commissioner Richard Ross identified the gunman in the Friday overnight rampage as 25-year-old Nicholas Glenn, and said he had a 9mm Ruger and at least three magazines as well as a plastic bag with 13 to 15 live rounds. “Obviously, he was hell-bent on hurting a lot of people,” the commissioner said at a news conference, adding that “we aren’t absolutely clear as to why.” A “rambling” note expressing hatred for police was found after at the scene of the violent event. Ross said earlier that police believe the note was written by the gunman; he said it expressed hatred toward law enforcement and named a probation officer.“This rambling suggests that he clearly was trying to target a police officer, as he did … so it just kind of makes it very clear to us what he was out there to do,” Ross said.last_img read more
