At least five Philadelphia police officers were wounded, at least one reportedly grazed in the head, in an ongoing shootout in the city's Nicetown neighborhood on Wednesday afternoon.

Two officers were rushed to Temple University Hospital, officials told Fox 29.

Two other officers were taken to Einstein Hospital, at least one of them was shot in the arm. All four officers are in stable condition and one suspect is in custody, while another remains at large.

The situation was being described as an active shooting scene that began around 4:30 p.m.

Officers called for backup frantically saying "shots fired, shots fired at North 15th street."

Video footage of the scene showed a massive police presence in the neighborhood as dozens of responding police officers and police cars blocked off the streets surrounding 15th and Butler streets, crouching behind cars, many with their guns drawn, in search of a possible gunman, according to reports by WCAU.

One officer appeared injured and was taken away in a police car. Video also showed two other officers carrying a man and putting them in the back of a police car, according to reports by the Associated Press.

Police are cautioning the community to stay indoors as gunshots continue to ring out in the neighborhood, in one-minute increments, and police search for an active shooter.
