A Philadelphia police officer is lucky to be alive after being shot while attempting to arrest a man wanted in the killing of a pregnant woman last year. The officer, however, managed to fire back, killing the suspect.
The police SWAT unit and homicide detectives had gone there to arrest 26-year-old Devon Guisherd, for the death of 25-year-old Megan Doto last September
They broke through the door of his second floor apartment, and they say Guishard tried to run.
In a press conference Wednesday morning, Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey explained, "He took off running, the officer was behind. He spun firing a round, striking the officer in the stomach with a .45 caliber weapon. The officer returned fire striking the suspect."
Guishard died a short time after he was shot.
The injured officer was wearing a bullet proof vest and was taken to Aria Health/Torresdale with severe bruising, but later released.
