(AP) Philadelphia police have shot and killed a suspect during a gun battle, marking the third police-involved shooting in the city in 24 hours.

Authorities say the latest shooting happened Wednesday night in the city's Germantown section. Police say they were pursuing at least three suspects and at least one officer fired, killing one of the suspects. A 2-year-old boy also suffered a graze wound during the exchange.

Officers are searching for the remaining suspects.

It marked the third police-involved shooting in the city on Wednesday, hours after the police commissioner announced a review of the department's use of deadly force. In the other incidents, officers shot a man in the buttocks after police say he pointed a gun; another man was critically injured after he was shot by officers who said he fired at them.
