The gunman was possibly armed with a rifle, police said.

As the chaos erupted outside with police dashing for cover from the gunfire, one of the trapped officers calmly relayed position details to a police dispatcher and his superiors and colleagues who were listening.

They had at least two people with them in handcuffs. He described where he thought one of the shooters was positioned downstairs in the dining room area.

Within seconds after the shooting began, a dispatcher called for an “assist officer,” meaning a police officer needed immediate help.

Then, in rapid succession, came a “second assist!” and then a “third assist!”

“Everyone stay back!” one of the commanders outside ordered.

Within minutes, one of the officers announced he had eight officers at the front door ready to rush in.

Instead, top brass ordered all the officers to maintain safe positions out of the line of fire.

“Male shooting out the back! Everyone stay put!” another commander declared a short time later.

Then came an excited announcement a minute later: “That male a has a long gun! That male has a long gun!”

Shots continued to be fired from the house. Just before 5:14 p.m., a dispatcher reported that there was possibly a second male shooter inside.

Police were attempting to communicate with the gunman through a loudspeaker as residents were being evacuated from nearby streets.

A day care center near the shooting scene was under lockdown until around 7:10 p.m. when police said they were escorting 58 children and adults from the location.

Police officers carried babies and mothers comforted shaken children as the daycare was evacuated.

“We had to stay calm and collected and get the children calm,” one staffer said.

Police had set up two city buses to hold children whose parents hadn’t yet arrived to pick them up. Other parents rushed frantically down the block, asking after their children at the bus doors.

“I’m just happy I got my daughter,” said Shere Calhoun, smoothing her 8-year-old’s hair. “I didn’t want her to be a victim.”

“Calm down, calm down,” an officer called to another parent running down the block. “The kids are safe.”

Earlier in the day, Temple University issued a lockdown for its nearby health and science campus, which includes the hospital.

“Lockdown is in effect on Health Sciences Center Campus. Seek shelter. Secure doors. Be silent. Be still. Police are responding,” Temple advised to staff and students.

It was lifted after 7 p.m.

Temple advised people to continue to avoid the area around the incident.

Amanda Baker was hunkered down, avoiding the windows in her apartment a few houses down the block from the one police had surrounded.

“I was watching TV and I heard all this ruckus,” she said, breathing heavily while speaking to a reporter by phone. “Next thing I saw, there were cops with their guns drawn running past the window. This is the craziest thing I’ve ever seen.”

She said she’d been calling neighbors who were coming home from work and alerting them not to come to the house.
