An off-duty cop who was injured in a drive-by shooting early this morning in East Mount Airy has been identified as Marc Brady, a six-year veteran of the force who is assigned to the 22nd District, police said.

Brady, 31, got in to a verbal and physical fight with another man on Musgrave Street near Pleasant around 12:30 a.m., according to police. Although Brady's girlfriend was nearby and witnessed the fight, police could not immediately confirm that the altercation was about her.

Following the fight, the other, unidentified man got in to his car, drove by Brady and shot him once in the upper right leg, according to police. The bullet went through Brady's leg and out the other side, police said. He was initially taken to Albert Einstein Medical Center in critical condition but has since been upgraded to stable.

The shooter is described as a black man in his mid-20s, around 6-feet tall and 200 pounds. He was driving 2003 silver or champagne Nissan Maxima.

Police are expected to release more details about Brady's shooting at a 2 p.m. news conference today, as well as details on the murder of Patrick Michael Brady, no relation, who was found dead in the Omni Hotel in Old City Saturday morning after firefighters responded to a small blaze in his room.

Brady, 49, of Chester County, an information technology worker for Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, was beaten, strangled and his room intentionally set on fire, officials said.
