How Did Philly Police Raid the Wrong Home?

Philadelphia police apologized Thursday afternoon for their middle-of-the-night raid earlier in the day at the wrong southwest Philly home, guns drawn.

Ronik Jardine was one of those rousted from her bed by SWAT members armed with rifles and other assault gear.

Jardine, 48, is disabled after being shot in the head by an ex-boyfriend and says police didn't care about that, even after she told them she was handicapped.

"He [the officer] said, 'Go down the steps! Go down the steps now!'" Jardine said she almost fell down the steps.

Police said none of the people in the house were connected to the suspects they're trying to find. Officials are planning a news conference Thursday to talk about what went wrong.
