Police Commissioner Richard Ross said the weapon used to wound Officer Jesse Hartnett was a police 9 mm semi-automatic pistol stolen in 2013 from an officer's home.
Still-frame pictures broadcast on national television Friday showed the suspect approaching Hartnett's vehicle at an intersection, going directly up to the officer's window, and a short time later running away.
However, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said that he did not believe that Islam or the teaching of Islam had anything to do with the attack.
The shooter in the attack is seen wearing a long white robe over dark trousers on surveillance video, but Ross said he did not know if it was Muslim garb.
"This guy tried to execute the officer", Ross said at a late-night briefing.
At least one police department in Berks County is taking steps in response to the police ambush in Philadelphia. "I'm just hesitant to jump to conclusions one way or the other." .
"Shots fired!... I'm bleeding heavily!" the officer shouts in a recording of his radio call for backup. Ross added, "He doesn't appear to be a stupid individual, just an extremely violent one".
A 30-year-old man, who has not been identified, was arrested after the incident on January 7. He was later captured, treated at the hospital and taken to police headquarters, officials said.
