Fleeing the scene once again, the pos fired into a passing vehicle, hitting the driver and a passenger in the chest.
The victims were male and female. The woman was pronounced dead at the hospital, the male victim is in critical condition, fighting for his life.
Police finally cornered Glenn and a shootout ensued. UPenn officer Eddie Miller was shot twice during the firefight. Police unloaded on the terrorist thug and he was killed.
Officers Young and Miller were transported to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center and are reported to be conscious and in stable condition.
A six block perimeter was setup as police searched for a possible second suspect.
