PHILADELPHIA — Police have faced off against armed suspects in North Philadelphia twice in the last two days, with one man critically injured during a daylight shooting yesterday. The other - wearing a bulletproof vest - was wrestled to the floor of a crowded SEPTA bus.

In the bus confrontation, a 35th District officer and the gunman desperately fought for a loaded semiautomatic that fell to the ground.
