PHILADELPHIA — The groans of a wounded suspect and the screams of two bickering Philadelphia police officers are the subject of a blurry YouTube video - and now an Internal Affairs investigation.

The 59-second video - much of which is shrouded in darkness - captures a heated, profane exchange between, police said, a female sergeant from the 19th District (headquartered at 61st and Thompson) and a male Highway Patrol officer, moments after cops wounded Marcus Henderson, 35, in West Philadelphia, on Jan. 20.
