Police are rushing the maniac who stole an ambulance to Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia after police shot at him for attempting to run them over, Your Content has learned.

Philadelphia police have captured a stolen ambulance suspect after a nearly two-hour chase on Friday night.

The madman struck one officer who was transported to an area hospital. He did not suffer life threatening injuries and sources say he’s cleared of any wrongdoing.

“He remains a prisoner,” said one sergeant on his police issued radio. “Make sure he is accompanied by officers by his side at [Jefferson] Frankford Hospital.”

The incident erupted just after 9 p.m. after a reported shooting on the 7400 block of Roosevelt Boulevard. From there, the crazed man stole the ambulance.

He was reportedly shot three times — including once in the leg, but appeared well enough to walk to the caravan awaiting him.
