PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Authorities say a Philadelphia police officer was shot and killed as he served a homicide warrant at a home in the city’s Frankford section.
Cpl. James O’Connor was shot around 5:45 a.m. Friday.
Officials say he was shot in the shoulder above his bulletproof vest when officers entered the home.
He was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead a short time later.
Two people in the home were shot and wounded by police, but they are expected to survive.
The 46-year-old O’Connor was a married father of two, including a son who also serves on the force.
