WASHINGTON, Aug 15 (dpa) -- Six police officers were shot and injured in a stand-off with at least one gunman in Philadelphia, an eastern US city, in an ongoing shoot-out.

Eric Gripp, a police spokesman, said the officers were not facing any life-threatening injuries. "Situation is active and ongoing," he tweeted.

The suspect was in a building in the Nicetown-Tioga area, apparently barricading himself inside, and was still firing at police.

The scene, with a heavy police presence outside the building, was being broadcast on local television channels, who utilized their helicopters to get aerial footage.

Police asked the news teams to clear the skies as they were interfering with the law enforcement work.
