Vanna Sok shot by police in Olney, Philadelphia – video

“A man is fighting for his life after an overnight shooting in the Olney section of the city. The man is now in critical condition as police continue to search for the suspect.

A man is in the hospital after he was shot by a police officer in the Olney section of the city.

It happened Saturday around 1 a.m. on 2nd and Nedro Street. Witnesses tell NBC10 the shooting stemmed from an argument that occurred at a baby shower. They say a car pulled up, words were exchanged and then two men began to fight.

“After I saw the guy hit the other guy, I told them, ‘let’s go, it’s time to go,’” said a woman who did not want to be identified. “We started walking off. As we walked down the driveway that’s when we heard the gunshots so I don’t know who shot who. I’m telling you what I heard, not what I saw.”

When police arrived at the scene, they say they saw Vanna Sok, 25, shooting at a red SUV traveling westbound on Nedro. When an officer got out of the car, Sok allegedly ran towards him and pointed his gun. Police say Sok refused to drop the weapon after the officer told him to do so. The officer then fired one shot which struck Sok in the head, according to investigators.”

“Lt. Raymond Evers says two officers were patrolling in the Olney section of the city at about 1 a.m. Sunday and saw a large crowd where residents told reporters that a baby shower had been going on.
