UPDATE: Suspect is in custody. The alleged gunman surrendered shortly after midnight. Hill was also live-streaming the shooting on Facebook. Many, including, Philadelphia's Mayor Jim Kenny have called for new gun control measures. He was placed into custody.
The gunman fired intermittently at police - sometimes shooting out of a window - during the standoff, Ross said.

The suspect was identified by Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner as Maurice Hill, 36.
