Philly officer shot by rampaging gunman released from hospital
PHILADELPHIA — A police officer shot during shooting rampage in Philadelphia last week has been released from a hospital after receiving a visit from four Philadelphia Eagles players.
The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 5 says University of Pennsylvania police officer Ed Miller was released on Sunday after receiving treatment for gunshot wounds to his hip and ankle.
Investigators say Miller was shot confronting a gunman who had already shot city Police Sgt. Sylvia Young and four civilians — one of whom died — in the Friday overnight attack.
Authorities say the gunman — later identified as Nicholas Glenn — subsequently died in a shootout with responding officers.
Police say Glenn had a note that expressed hatred for law enforcement and a probation officer.
Police say Young was shot in her shoulder, arm and chest. She’s hospitalized in stable condition.
Eagles players Jordan Mathews, Trey Burton, Zach Ertz and Jordan Hicks all visited Miller before his release from Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. The players stopped by on their way to catch a flight to Chicago, where they’re scheduled to play the Bears on Monday Night Football.
