Officials ID police officer shot, wounded in Kensington; 2 suspects arrested

- Authorities say two suspects have been arrested in a shooting that wounded a Philadelphia police officer.

Commissioner Richard Ross said 31-year-old Officer Paul Sulock was shot in the leg shortly after 11 a.m. Wednesday. Sulock and another uniformed officer apparently interrupted a confrontation between two men on the 3100 block of Reach Street.

Ross said the men were crouched behind cars across the street from each other, one armed and apparently about to shoot the other. Ross said Sulock chased down one of the suspects despite his wound. The other was also arrested.

Sources say SWAT was already on the scene responding to a barricade situation.

Ross said Sulock "is going to be OK." He is currently in stable condition at Temple University Hospital.

Police said the father of four has been on the force for more than a decade and is the son of another officer.
