Dispatch Audio Of Police Officer Shot in Philadelphia
Officials say the suspect in custody for the shooting that seriously injured a Philadelphia police officer has confessed to the crime, saying he did it 'in the name of Islam.'
Commissioner Richard Ross provided that update during a news conference on Friday afternoon. He said there was no indication from the suspect, 30-year-old Edward Archer of Yeadon, that he was involved in a conspiracy.
Archer had pledged his allegiance to ISIS, officials say. Ross called the shooting "an attempted assassination of a police officer."
The shooting happened 11:40 p.m. on Thursday.
Surveillance images show a man, identified as Archer, approaching the driver's side window of Officer Jesse Hartnett's vehicle. Images show the suspect pointing a gun at Hartnett's vehicle, while another shows what appears to be the muzzle flash as he fires.
