Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf delayed the signing of an executive order out of respect for the officers injured in Philadelphia Wednesday.
Wolf was planning to sign the order that would target gun violence Thursday morning. He told WFMZ's Alexandra Hogan that the postponed news conference will be held Friday at 10 a.m.
Six officers were shot and three sustained other injuries in a standoff that shut down part of the city for hours Wednesday night.
The alleged gunman eventually surrendered to police around midnight. The gunfire erupted when officers tried serving a drug warrant at the home around 4:30 p.m.
Wolf was in Philadelphia Thursday and told 69 News no one needs to live in fear. That's the argument he's making on gun safety.
"We need to make sure we're given the freedom to pursue our lives in a way that we're not always afraid that somebody's going to shoot us at a Walmart, a school, in a neighborhood, wherever," Wolf said.
