    The Latest: 2 dead, 2 cops among 5 wounded in Philly rampage

    7:40 a.m.
    Authorities say a man who went on a shooting rampage through the streets of Philadelphia wounded two police officers and five civilians and killed a woman before police fatally shot him.
    Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross says officers began chasing the man late Friday after he ambushed Sgt. Sylvia Young, striking her several times in the in the arm and protective vest. Ross says Ed Miller of the University of Pennsylvania police force also was wounded. Both were in stable condition early Saturday.
    Ross says the suspect also shot into a bar, striking a security guard in the leg, and used a woman as a shield before shooting her in the leg.
    He later shot into a car, striking a man and a woman. Police say the woman died and the man was in critical condition.

    "Commissioner Richard Ross said a “rambling” note apparently written by the gunman expressed hatred for police officers and named a probation officer."

    Was the shooter a convicted felon with a gun? How can that be? That would be illegal.
