Police identify man wanted in connection to Bronx, Philadelphia shootings

Authorities in Philadelphia say it was surveillance video that helped investigators there and in New York City come to the conclusion that they were likely searching for the same person.

Police say an arrest warrant has been issued for the suspect wanted for shooting a Philadelphia Parking Authority officer last month. The same suspect is also a person of interest in connection with a shooting at a gas station in the Bronx.

Officers are searching for 39-year-old Termaine Saulsbury who lives on Woodland Avenue in Southwest Philadelphia.

Saulsbury is accused of shooting a Philadelphia Parking Authority officer on November 25 on Frankford Avenue in Philadelphia.

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 in critical condition. He has since been released but his recovery continues.

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

Police say Saulsbury may still be in the Philadelphia area. Anyone that may be helping him evade police could also be facing charges, officials said.

Investigators say he is about 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet tall, with a thin build. He was seen wearing a Navy blue hooded sweatshirt, green cargo pants, black mask, gloves and black boots.

The suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information is asked to call Philadelphia Police at 215-686-TIPS.

Information on the suspect or the Bronx shooting can also be provided to the NYPD.
