After a Philadelphia eviction officer was reportedly attacked during an eviction and shot a tenant in the leg, the City’s Landlord-Tenant Officer announced evictions would be paused pending an investigation.

HAPCO Philadelphia was the first to break the news of the eviction pause.  And WHYY Radio immediately reached out to HP to find out the impact on rental property owners.

HP President Greg Wertman is quoted as saying an eviction pause is just another hit to hard-working rental owners.
