Police: Officer wounded in shooting, 2 suspects arrested

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - 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 after he and another uniformed officer apparently interrupted a confrontation between two men in the Kensington neighborhood northeast of the city center.

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.

Ross said Sulock "is going to be OK." Police said the father of four has been on the force for more than a decade and is the son of another officer.
