HARRISBURG, Pa.–Governor Tom Wolf issued the following statement on the deadly rampage in West Philadelphia late Friday:

“Our thoughts are with the officers and other victims of this horrifying violence. This is a reminder of the danger that those who seek to keep us safe face every day and we are thankful for the law enforcement personnel who put themselves in harms way to protect the people of our commonwealth.”

Philadelphia police say a note expressing hatred toward law enforcement was found after a man ambushed a police officer and then went on a shooting rampage through the city streets.

The gunman was shot and killed by police. So far, no word on the identity of the gunman.
