The officer, who has been identified by his employer as Timothy McKenzie, collapsed onto the sidewalk before help arrived.

"It's bold. It's brazen and something we're definitely going to do everything we can to solve immediately," said Philadelphia Police Deputy Commissioner Frank Vanore last week.

McKenzie is in stable condition and the PPA and others are praying he makes a full recovery.

It's still unclear what sparked the shooting.

McKenzie is assigned to the Frankford neighborhood and is well-known in the community.
