Having already gone through multiple surgeries, a wounded Philly cop still needs even more surgery operations after being shot during an ambush in West Philly.
Officer Jesse Hartnett, 33, sustained three gunshots to the arm when he was attacked by Edward Archer, who claimed he was inspired by ISIS, on Jan. 7 at 60th and Pine streets.
Hartnett is doing well, but will remain hospitalized awaiting further surgery, NBC reported.
He is being treated at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, where another officer was attacked by a man trying to steal his gun just two days after the shooting.
Archer fired 13 shots while running up at Hartnett’s car shortly before midnight Jan. 7, which was passing through the intersection of 60th and Pine streets, reportedly shattering Hartnett’s elbow, damaging an artery and a nerve center.
Despite the gunshots, Hartnett was able to get out of his car and shoot Archer in the buttocks while giving chase and aiding other officers in arresting him.
Archer’s preliminary hearing on attempted murder charges is scheduled for Jan. 25.
A Gofundme page to support Hartnett and his family has collected more than $32,000 in donationsas of Jan. 18.
