Police: Retired Philadelphia Cop Shoots Intruder
A retired Philadelphia Police Officer opened fire on an intruder late Thursday afternoon in Northeast Philadelphia.
Police say the retired cop was checking on a friend’s house in the 10000 block of Bustleton Avenue when he encountered an intruder.
After an escape attempt failed, police say Joseph Malone, 24, allegedly lunged at the officer who shot him once in the shoulder.
Malone, the stepson of the homeowner, was taken to Frankford-Torresdale Hospital where he was treated and released into police custody.
Police say Malone was inside the house illegally and faces charges.
The officer was not injured.
