Police Warned of Group Gunning for Cops

The Philadelphia Police Department is working with the FBI to investigate a tip alleging that a man charged in a cop shooting last week has ties to a radical group that plans to target more officers. Authorities said Sunday that a person told an officer on the street that the man who attacked Officer Jesse Hartnett “had an affiliation to a group with radical beliefs.” A man charged Hartnett’s car Thursday night, firing off at least 13 shots and hitting him at least three times. Harnett got out of his car and fired at the man, wounding him before other officers detained him. Harnett is reportedly in stable condition in the hospital. Police charged 30-year-old Edward Archer with attempted murder, aggravated assault, assault of a law-enforcement officer, and several firearms crimes. (Archer’s mother told police her son had long suffered from mental-health problems.) Investigators said Archer pledged allegiance to ISIS and said he was “following Allah.”
