PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Police responding to reports of shots fired in a Philadelphia neighborhood encountered a woman who authorities say opened fire on the officers, sparking a shootout that left her wounded and a man dead. Two uniformed officers heard people in the backyard of a home early Friday and tried to enter the area through an alleyway. They saw a man and a woman outside a home, and authorities say the woman immediately began firing several shots at the officers. They returned fire, eventually capturing the pair. The woman was shot in the thigh, hip and buttocks, and the man was shot in the abdomen. Neither officer was injured.
