Gunman Identified in West Philadelphia Rampage That Left 6 Shot, Including 1 Woman Fatally and 2 Police Officers

he lone gunman in a shooting that killed a woman and injured five people, including two police officers, wrote a rambling note, described as a “bunch of rantings” in the first person, officials said. The words he wrote on the envelope were “Doomed People.”

“Which apparently was meant for anyone he came across,” Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross said Saturday afternoon, about 15 hours after the now-dead suspect Nicholas Glenn shot his way across four blocks of Sansom Street late Friday. “Other than the rantings he had in that letter, we don’t know what he was motivated by. Unfortunately, we may never know.”

Glenn’s rampage left two police officers badly wounded, a young woman sitting in a car outside her home dead and three other bystanders wounded by gunfire.

Glenn, 25, allegedly mentioned his parole officer in the letter that police found after shooting him dead in an alley near 48th and Sansom streets. Ross said he has no apparent ties to any larger organization.

His rampage started about 11:20 p.m. Friday when he walked up to Sgt. Sylvia Young’s marked police cruiser on 52nd and Sansom streets. Young, who is assigned to the 22nd District, was working a patrol detail in the 18th District. As Young sat inside her vehicle, Glenn, armed with a 9mm handgun, opened fire at the driver’s side, police said.

    Anarchy seems to be the name of the game Obama is playing during the waning days of his presidency. Yesterday, he sent his wife as a surrogate campaigner for the ailing Hillary…where the attending
    idiots chanted ‘4 more years’ — for what???…to get unearned free stuff?
    These are all Obama’s tactics to hold on to the presidency for one more term.

    Where did this crazy, loony, terrorist get a gun? Hildy, I don’t think your anti-gun lies are sinking home to the right people. Obviously, he is one of Bammie’s chilluns so he don’t need no license to carry. He entitled.

    If your for more criminals and terrorists wrecking havoc on our society vote for Hillary Clinton

    Was this another one of Obama’s early releases from prison, so far 2 early outs have committed murder, and no one has covered it!

      But, but, but …. how can this be?? Obama said he was only releasing ‘non-violent’ prisoners. You know, the ones like drug dealers who don’t use violence, but sell poison to kids on the street corner.

        And we know Obama doesn’t lie about anything!! 🙂

    Sounds like the administration has the media trained now to tone down all attacks that would thwart Obama’s agenda and legacy.

      You can thank klinton for that. The 1996 Telecommunications Act drove out the independent media because they couldn’t compete with the international conglomerates that now run them all. This is why hitlery is always right and Trump is always wrong, The conglomerates want 1 world order, then we’re all slaves to them, the banksters and the rest of the kings and queens. The TTIP TPP and other pacs will turn us into another slime 3rd world country. That’s the final goal.

        Amen, and a lot of support from Soros!! He wants to see some of his work take place before he dies!!

  • GrizzMann

    Is he one of Obama’s make believe sons or one of his dreamers?

    • John Yossarian

      Those necks tats mark this parolee as more of a Dindu Muffin than a Black Lies Panther. So my money’s going on “Son of Obummer”.
