Police are looking into a new video showing the shooting of a Philadelphia Parking Authority officer.
Last Friday, around 4 p.m., a brazen attack occurred on the 4500 block of Frankford Avenue.
The suspect is seen on video approaching the 37-year-old male PPA officer from behind and shooting him in the ear and shoulder.
Before help arrives, the officer, who was on duty at the time, collapses onto the sidewalk.
“It’s bold. It’s brazen and something we’re definitely going to do everything we can to solve immediately,” said Philadelphia Police Deputy Commissioner Frank Vanore last week.
The injured officer is in stable condition, and the PPA and others hope he recovers completely.
It is still unknown what prompted the shooting.
The PPA officer assigned to the Frankford neighborhood was well-known.
“I speak to him every day. He’s a good guy, really nice guy,” said Bamba Sisoko of Frankford. 6abc reported.
