Charges dropped against James Gauthney in shooting of Philly cop Paul Sullock

PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — The Philadelphia District Attorney has dropped charges against one of the men charged in the shooting of a Philly cop last fall in the city’s Fairhill neighborhood. 

In the court proceeding, which lasted less than a minute, the Philadelphia prosecutor dropped three charges against 20-year-old James Gauthney: hindering apprehension, obstruction of justice and a related offense.

Prosecutors say Gauthney and 29-year-old Jerome Hill were fighting each other near G and Madison streets in November, and it was Hill who shot Officer Paul Sulock. 


Gautheny has a lengthy criminal history, mostly including drug charges. 

The DA’s office delayed the preliminary hearing four times before dropping charges.

Hill’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for May.
