The incident that triggered such a mass scare occurred when people were gathered in front of the Philadelphia Art Museum for the fireworks, as reported by ABC News.

The other officer was hit in the shoulder.

The dramatic visuals from Philadelphia came hours after a horrifying incident of mass shooting was reported from Highland Park, Illinois. A 21-year-old gunman opened fire from a rooftop onto a parade in the Chicago suburb which left seven people dead and 47 people injured.
