Philadelphia Police Chief Charles Ramsey told the Inquirer he visited the gravely wounded young man in the hospital Wednesday.
The round that hit him in the head damaged his eyesight, though it was unclear if the injury would be permanent, the newspaper reported.
Ramsey told the newspaper the officers who shot him “feel terrible.”
“It’s just unfortunate all around and we’re just praying that this young man is able to fully recover.”
“This is a young man who has two jobs” and a good family, Ramsey told the newspaper.
In addition delivering food for Upper Darby pizza parlor Slices and More, Ramsey worked as a baggage handler for Philadelphia International Airport, CBS Philly reported.
His boss at the pizza shop called him a model employee, a “nice, clean young guy.”
“He came into work early, never said no to anything,” Tony Spirokostas told the station.
