PHILADELPHIA — A body was recovered from the Schuylkill River this morning but police said they have not been able to confirm if it is the body of the suspect that shot a Philadelphia police officer.

Traffic officer Mariano Santiago, 44, was shot and wounded last night by a masked gunman who police said had just brazenly shot three people in a vehicle at a Center City intersection.

The shootings, the frantic search for the suspect who apparently disappeared into the Schuylkill and the convergence of dozens of emergency vehicles on Center City triggered chaos less than a mile from the Drexel University campus, where Democratic presidential candidates were concluding a nationally televised debate.
