Tape shows teen who shot at cops

Earlier today, police officials released surveillance images that they say show a teenage boy who shot at two cops in North Philadelphia last Thursday.

The blurry image shows the teen, who's wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans, running from Hazzard Street near 12th. He fired one shot when the two officers approached him because they believed he was acting suspiciously, police said last week.

One officer returned fire, but apparently did not wound the teen. The young gunman's .40 caliber Glock was found at the scene. Click here to read the original account of the incident by the Daily News' Christine Olley.

Tipsters can contact police at 215-686-3334.
