From manual page:

While creating a datetime object using following function  

DateTime::createFromFormat('G:iA', '15:00PM');

produced this object

DateTime Object
  [date] => 2017-07-02 03:00:00.000000
  [timezone_type] => 3
  [timezone] => UTC

Its mixing "G/H" and "A" to produce wrong results as it adds extra hours resulting in wrong date and time. May be we should ignore "A" in case if "G/H" is used instead of "g/h"

Test script:
I think this array has all possible scenarios:

$test = [
   DateTime::createFromFormat('G:i', '3:00');
   DateTime::createFromFormat('G:i', '15:00');
   DateTime::createFromFormat('G:iA', '3:00AM');
   DateTime::createFromFormat('G:iA', '15:00AM');
   DateTime::createFromFormat('G:iA', '15:00PM');


Expected result:
I was expecting to see object at last index with correct time like following

DateTime Object
  [date] => 2017-07-01 15:00:00.000000
  [timezone_type] => 3
  [timezone] => UTC

Actual result:
It produced following object:

DateTime Object
  [date] => 2017-07-02 03:00:00.000000
  [timezone_type] => 3
  [timezone] => UTC
