God bless the Philadelphia police officers who were injured, those who put their lives in danger and those who were trapped inside the house for over 4-hours while the police were fired on.
The suspect, 36-year old Maurice Hill has a history of firearm convictions, aggravated assault, resisting arrest and other violent crimes. He has over a dozen arrests and has been in and out of jail since the early 2000’s. He opened fire on police officers when they arrived at the home to serve a narcotics warrant. The officers were inside the house when they were fired on. All but two officers were able to escape. Two officers from the Narcotics Strike Force were trapped in the house for over 4-hours.
