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.
