Why did Nicholas Glenn ambush Philadelphia police?

What led to Nicholas Glenn a career criminal targeting and ambushing Philadelphia police? Left letter with hate filled diatribe towards police. 

Nicholas Glenn a 25 year old man has been identified as the shooter who Friday evening ambushed Philadelphia Police Sgt Sylvia Young before going on a shooting spree which left three injured and two dead, including the shooter.

The gunman, since described as a career criminal via NBC Philadelphia had written a letter expressing scorn and hate towards police along with a desire to take out a probation officer.

During a press conference, Philadelphia Commissioner Richard Ross said the man had acted alone.

The mayhem began just on 11.20 pm in the district of Walnut Hill, west Philadelphia when Glenn walked up to Sgt Sylvia Young’s patrol car and blasted 15 gunshots through an open window, with eight bullets striking the woman.

Miraculously the 19 year department survived on account of wearing a bulletproof vest and with most of the gunfire hitting her in the left arm.

At the time, the shooter hadn’t said a word to Young before firing gunfire at her at close range.

After ambushing Sergeant Young, Nicholas Glenn took off with police pursuing the man. At that point, Glenn fired randomly through the open door of a bar, striking a security guard.

From there the gunman grabbed a woman and used her as a human shield before also shooting and injuring her in the leg.

From there Glenn ran two blocks before firing multiple shots into a random white vehicle.

According to CNN, a  25-year-old woman inside was killed after she was shot seven times in the torso. A man who was also inside the car was also shot at, with the man currently in critical condition.

The mayhem finally came to an end after Nicholas Glenn came to be confronted by University of Pennsylvania police officer Ed Miller, 56, and two Philadelphia officers.

They opened fire,  killing Glenn, but not before Miller also sustaining non life threatening injuries.

A report via Philly.com cites court records indicating Nicholas Glenn had a criminal record consisting of Philadelphia drug-possession convictions.

Wrote the outlet: ‘He had also been arrested and charged in connection with a gang-related rape in a November 2009 incident, but these charges were later dropped.’

The rape case was withdrawn by prosecutors in December 2011 for reasons that are currently unknown.

Ross said at a press conference on Saturday: ‘Right now we have a lot of questions. This is completely a bizarre situation.’

He added that police were currently trying to track down the probation officer mentioned in the note ‘to make sure they are okay first and foremost’.

Both police officers were in a stable condition early Saturday at Penn Presbyterian Hospital.

No mention of whether the shooting was political or in protest against police brutality or merely a man’s abject hate for the law after constant run ins? Or whether the man’s letter served as some kind of manifesto with the gunman guarding of almost certain death after targeting Philadelphia police.

To date authorities have yet to to tell what motivated Nicholas Glenn’s shooting spree which they called bizarre as they now seek to understand the moments leading up to Glenn approaching Sgt Sylvia Young’s patrol car and maniacally shooting at her….

    Which facts? I just didn’t want to justify that BS with a response. BTW I do like white people. I just don’t think you’re any superior the “other” like some of you would like to believe. If you read most of the above posts… Then talk about “anti-white”

  • YourTruth

    Doesn’t it suck when facts ruin your anti-white, left-wing loon propaganda

  • Divine Friend

    What the hell are you talking about? Do you approve of using a picture of a bedroom shot to portray the Sergeant that was shot? And Divine Friend is my name.

    Pathetic inbred No wonder we have too much mental illness in this country. 😉 Okay, maybe this is a cheap shot! but in the spirit of this year’s NO PC crap! There..

    Someone FALSELY CHARGED with gang rape and drug possession charges going on a rampage is not surprising.

    BLUE LIVERS MATTER more to us than this human garbage.
    Glad he’s DEAD.
    TRUMP 2016 Law and Order!

  • felix1999

    Read the GOD DAMMED LETTER he left telling WHY he did this.
    The “motivation” is a mystery ONLY to a MORON!

    “The gunman, since described as a career criminal via NBC Philadelphia had written a letter expressing scorn and hate towards police along with a desire to take out a probation officer.”

  • felix1999

    The “motivation”is not a mystery. He is a BLACK CAREER CRIMINAL and left a LETTER indicating WHY he did this – HATRED of LAW ENFORCEMENT!
    What’s wrong with these “journalists”?

  • “They know damn well this hurts Black Americans more than it could ever possibly help them.” It’s exactly why the fund blm.

  • eViLeMpiRe66

    Say, serial killer guru, can you tell us anything about Henry Louis Wallace, Carl Eugene Watts, Mark Goudeau, Chester Turner, or Lorenzo Gilyard?
    A 2014 Radford/FGCU Serial Killer Database
    annual statistics report showed that for the decades 1900–2010, the percentage of White serial killers was 52.1% while the percentage of African American serial killers was 40.3%.
    I would never ask someone such as yourself to even attempt to understand how this data relates to population percentages, but perhaps you could ask one of your “fam”.
    “We wuz kangs yo” indeed.

  • Michael Sullivan

    Another law-hating dirt bag encouraged by BLM no doubt. They hate cops and they love criminals. It’s good that he’s dead.

    What led to Nicholas Glenn a career criminal targeting and ambushing Philadelphia police? The question is its own answer “a career criminal”

  • eViLeMpiRe66

    “blows things out of proportion.” says the apologist dindu that ignores FBI statistics. Tell us, mass shooting expert, how many mass shootings were done in Chicago, Memphis, New Orleans, Baltimore, and St, Louis this month? This year? Care to guess?

  • 11BravoMike

    I’ve never seen race relations this bad in 40+ years. Is this the hope and change you wanted America? It’s as if Obama and Soros work for the KKK and are preying on the gullible. Why the hell would they fund and endorse such a hateful movement(BLM). They know damn well this hurts Black Americans more than it could ever possibly help them.

    Don’t believe me? Good luck at your next job interview.

  • Talik Kasozi

    And where do you go? DO YOU EVEN KNOW? You’re not native American I assume? Truth is White people commit MASS MURDERS, Serial Killers, and everything demented. But when a tragedy is carried out by another… The White Media blows things out of proportion.

  • eorann

    where are the traitors Low Retta lynch and barocky the flying socialist president? Put them in jail.

  • 101stDouglass_Collingsworth

    When 97.3% of interacial violence is BLACK ON WHITE, YOU ARE NOT THE VICTIMS.


  • Talik Kasozi

    if it was a white guy, they would say he had mental illness. But now that he is black… Blame black lives matter and the POTUS. SAD white people shitty excuses. SAD fact is, there will probably be another white person mass shooting. Guess the excuse? You can’t make this shit up any more.

    let me guess… another hyphenated last name moron spewing your social justice monkey babble

  • Tim_Parker_999

    Apparently black lives matter very little when it comes to black on black violence. It doesn’t count & there is nothing to be gained from it.

  • ObamaReally Suucks

    glad to see that this POS thug is once and forever ,,,DEAD !

  • Divine Friend

    So, what is the inane reason of posting a picture of Sgt. Sylvia Young in what appears to be a bedroom shot with pictures of intimate coupling in the background?
