Two police officers were shot and injured during a July Fourth celebration in Philadelphia, NBC News reports. Both officers were taken to a local hospital and are in stable conditions.

Video from the shooting shows thousands of people fleeing the scene, which unfolded in the city’s Fairmount Street-Art Museum area. Fireworks can be seen going off in the background.

“I didn’t hear the shots, but the cops were like, ‘Run, run, run,’” a woman told Philly’s NBC10.

Per NBC News, no one is currrently in custody.
