The man accused of shooting a Philadelphia police officer, and a man who apparently interfered with the investigation, have been identified, reports WPVI.

Officer Paul Sulock came under fire in the Kensington section of Philadelphia on Wednesday morning. He was hit in the leg and was released from the hospital on Thursday.

One suspect, 29-year-old Jerome Hill, has been charged with allegedly shooting Sulock. District Attorney Larry Krasner said on Friday that Hill is charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault on law enforcement, and other offenses. Hill is being held on $3.3 million bail.

The second suspect, 18-year-old James Gauthney, is charged with hindering apprehension and obstruction of justice. Krasner said his office will be asking for $1 million bail.
