PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia police shot and killed a suspect during a gun battle Wednesday night, marking the third police-involved shooting in the city on the day its police commissioner said he is seeking a review of the department's use of deadly force.
The latest shooting happened in the city's Germantown section while officers were pursuing at least three suspects, authorities said. A 2-year-old boy also suffered a graze wound during the exchange. Officers were searching for the remaining suspects.
It was the third police-involved shooting in the city on Wednesday and came hours after the police Commissioner Charles Ramsey announced that he is seeking an independent review of the department's deadly force policies. Earlier in the day officers shot a man in the buttocks after police say he pointed a gun; another man was critically injured after he was shot by officers who said he fired at them.
