Philadelphia Officer Shot, Wounded; 2 Suspects in Custody

November 07, 2018  | 

Authorities say two suspects have been arrested in a shooting that wounded a Philadelphia police officer after he and another uniformed officer apparently interrupted a confrontation between two men in the Kensington neighborhood.

Commissioner Richard Ross said 31-year-old Officer Paul Sulock was shot in the leg shortly after 11 a.m. Wednesday, reports WPVI.

Ross said the men were crouched behind cars across the street from each other, one armed and apparently about to shoot the other. "The quick action of these police officers probably saved the life of one of these people involved, quite frankly. It was going to be a shooting, there is no question about that," said Ross.

The armed man reportedly fired at the officers, hitting Sulock in his thigh.

Ross said Sulock chased down one of the suspects despite his wound. The other suspect was also arrested.

Police said Sulock, a father of four, has been on the force for nearly 11 years and is the son of another officer.
