An off-duty Philadelphia Police officer was involved in a shooting Sunday night in the city's Oxford Circle section. The officer was trying to break-up a fight, in the 1500 hundred block of Lardner Street. That's when one of the men involved in the fight apparently came at the officer and the officer opened fire.

The man was shot several times and is in surgery at Einstein Hospital.

The officer was not injured.
