A Philadel­phia po­lice of­fi­cer who was shot in the leg after he in­ter­rupted a con­fronta­tion be­tween two men has been re­leased from the hos­pi­tal.

Of­fi­cer Paul Su­lock was re­leased from Tem­ple Uni­ver­sity Hos­pi­tal around 2:30 p.m. Thurs­day and walked out on his own, slightly limp­ing.

Su­lock was shot Wed­nes­day morn­ing after he and an­other uni­formed of­fi­cer came upon a con­fronta­tion be­tween two men in the Kens­ing­ton neigh­bor­hood.

The men were crouched be­hind cars across the street from each other, one armed and ap­par­ently about to shoot the other. Com­mis­sioner Richard Ross said Su­lock chased down one of the sus­pects de­spite his wound. The other was also ar­rested.

Ross said 31-year-old was there for the dis­charge and says Su­lock is a hero.

The fa­ther of four has been on the force for more than a decade and is the son of an­other of­fi­cer.
