Terrorism Eyed After Driver Allegedly Targets Pedestrians In Philadelphia

Terrorism was being eyed as a possible motive after a man in a black Honda targeted pedestrians Monday morning in Philadelphia, seriously injuring one person before being shot in the head by an off-duty cop, officials said. The driver, who wasn’t immediately identified, was pronounced dead at a hospital, police said. The driver was initially in “extremely critical condition” after the incident and was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the head. Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross Jr. said at a news conference Monday evening that while initial reports said the driver attempted to hit multiple people with his car, police have been “unable to confirm that he was trying to strike several people.” Authorities said they were reviewing videos of the incident and looking for more witnesses for more information.
