EAST LANSDOWNE, Pa. (AP) — Six members of a family are feared dead at a house in suburban Philadelphia that went up in flames as two police officers who responded to the scene were shot. Among those feared dead are three children. Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer says some remains of a body and a rifle were recovered from the home in East Lansdowne. He’s cautioning that the probe is in its early stages as investigators seek clues to the fire and the shooting, which took place Wednesday afternoon. One of the wounded officers was discharged from the hospital Thursday.
