The crazed gunman who shot at police in Philadelphia Wednesday was forbidden from owning firearms, yc.news has learned. 

Sources close to the investigation tell us that the man – believed to be 34-year-old Maurice Hill –had a “violent history” and was forbidden to possess firearms. 

Multiple sources say Hill has a long criminal record of drug offenses dating back to 2003.

As we previously reported, a Philadelphia man shot at police during a standoff, injuring multiple officers and taking two hostage. 

The gunfire erupted sometime around 4:30 p.m. when police attempted to serve a narcotics warrant at a home along the 3700 block of North 15th Street.

“Tonight’s events are what tear at the fabric of our Commonwealth. We are indebted to the men and women who stand on the front lines protecting our cities, towns and neighborhoods — those who run towards danger when instinct tells you to run away,” Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said in a statement Wednesday night. “That is the kind of bravery I see from law enforcement across our Commonwealth every day.”

Shapiro also noted his office is prepared to assist Philadelphia Police during this time. 

“Our communities cannot sustain this type of violence. This cannot continue,” Shapiro said. 

“My thoughts are with the officers wounded in tonight’s horrific incident, their families who share the burden of service, and the medical professionals who worked to treat them.”

Philadelphia Police were unable to confirm if the suspect was or wasn’t permitted to possess firearms.
