The suspect was reportedly struck in the arm, but it is not immediately clear if the suspect was hit by the officers' gunfire amid the chaotic situation. 

Eric Walsh, an employee of the nearby O'Neals Pub, said he heard gunshots around 11:30 p.m. and acted swiftly to usher those in and around the bar to seek shelter, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. 

"People were coming off the street with blood splatters on white sneakers and skinned knees and skinned elbows," Walsh said per the report. "We literally just were balling up napkins and wetting them and handing them to people... it was chaos."
