The suspect, Maurice Hill, 36, was denied bail during a preliminary arraignment, online court records show.

Hill is accused of shooting at officers who were serving a drug warrant Wednesday, then keeping police at bay while he fired repeatedly from inside a building.

Hill's preliminary hearing will be September 5. Johnson then called Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner, and they patched in both Hill and the police commissioner, according to Krasner.

"When [Hill] started talking about things that those of us in the business knew could not happen, [Krasner] did not thwart the negotiations by shutting him down immediately, nor did he promise him anything that ultimately couldn't get done", attorney Shaka Johnson told the Inquirer.

Hill's criminal convictions include assault, perjury, fleeing and eluding, escape and weapons offenses.

The six officers who were struck by gunfire were released after being treated at hospitals Wednesday night.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross has expressed amazement that the standoff ended with no one dead and no life-threatening injuries, despite the gunman firing over 100 rounds.

Four other men were charged with drug offenses in connection with the standoff; two were trapped in the house along with the gunman and two Philadelphia police officers, the Inquirer reported.

At least two weapons were used in the shooting, authorities said.

Hill began firing on officers on Wednesday as they were serving a narcotics warrant, a situation which Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross has said "went awry nearly immediately". But to Kasner's point, video of that moment show crowds of people outside the home heckling police and pelting them with random objects.

Two officers remained trapped inside the house until about 9:30 p.m., along with three hostages. The suspect also talked by phone to an attorney, who tried to convince him to surrender peacefully, the police commissioner said.

SWAT officers shot tear gas into a home on North 15th Street near West Butler Street shortly after midnight in the North Philadelphia neighborhood of Nicetown-Tioga.
