PHILADELPHIA -- The man being sought for a shooting in the Bronx and the alleged shooting of a Philadelphia Parking Authority officer last month has been arrested.

Surveillance video shows the suspect walking up to the 37-year-old PPA officer from behind and shooting him in the ear and shoulder.

The PPA officer, who has been identified as Timothy McKenzie, was taken to Temple University Hospital. He has since been released but his recovery continues.

He was also named a person of interest in the shooting of a Sunoco gas station employee in the Bronx on Nov. 22.

The NYPD worked with Philadelphia police to make the identification. Distinctive characteristics mixed with vehicle information, and different locations frequented by Saulsbury led to his identification, police said.

Saulsbury has a lengthy criminal history dating back to 2001. He stood accused of weapons violations, an armed robbery at Wawa and an attack on prison guards while serving a sentence in 2016.

Philly police provide update on PPA shooting suspect on Dec. 14, 2022.
