PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — Two police officers fired about 20 shots at a vehicle that struck and injured one of the officers early yesterday morning in Old City, the latest mayhem to break out around Philadelphia's nightclubs.

Internal Affairs investigators are looking into officers' use of force after the encounter in the 100 block of Chestnut Street, the same block where there was a fatal gun battle three weeks ago.
