Two Philadelphia police officers were shot near the Benjamin Franklin Parkway as thousands of people celebrated a Fourth of July concert and fireworks show. Both officers were in stable condition. Video footage taken close to the scene showed people running from the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and helicopters with searchlights flying above.
