Man Tries To Run Down Philadelphia Police

A man tried to run police down in Old City Wednesday night and they shot at the getaway car.

The man got away.

The man was trying to break into a car, according to police. They approached him. He jumped into a car (not sure if it's the same one) and drove straight toward the officers.

Police fired at the car. They don't know if the man was hit.
