PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — At least four Philadelphia police officers were shot in Philadelphia’s Nicetown-Tioga section and rushed to the hospital on Wednesday afternoon.

Mayor Jim Kenney and Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross are heading to Temple University Hospital.

Chopper 3 was over the scene where police could be seen taking a man into custody. It’s not clear what the man’s role was in the incident.

Police say the shooting happened on the 3700 block of North 15th Street, where it’s still an active scene.

Police were first called to the scene for narcotics activity, according to Philadelphia Police Capt. Sekou Kinebrew.

Sources tell CBS3 that the scene is sheer chaos as officers were taking fire. Video from Chopper 3 shows officers with guns drawn at the scene.

There is a large police presence and citizens are advised to avoid the area. Several blocks around the scene have been cordoned off. Most of North Philadelphia is in gridlock due to the police presence.

Lockdown is in effect for Health Sciences Center Campus. Seek shelter. Secure doors. Be silent. Be still. Police are responding.

Here's a great test for a new "Gun Control Law":

Disarm all illegal drug dealers.

Then we'll know you're serious about reducing violent crime.

1, 2, 3 how long before they blame the shootings on “White Supremacist” cops or black cops who think like “White Supremacists.” CNN will do it before the day is out. Plus they’ll try to tie the shootings to Trump.

North Philly is the worst part of Philly.
Any guesses as to the demographic breakdown?

I’ve been in that area before. It’s not so nice.

A reporter on the scene is talking down to everyone watching. What ignorance. Armored vehicle on the scene ramming cruisers to get closer to shooter. We are becoming worse than 3rd world countries.

Aforementioned TV reporter just messed up and had the camera pan to show spectators and they’re all black. This is all on CBS3 TV in Philadelphia.
