Police Investigate Phoenix Officer Who Shot a Suspect


An officer can some times be a scary thing. However, for the most part they just try to save lives and make the world a safer place. An officer shot a suspect recently in the North Phoenix area and now the authorities are investigating.


According to the report, the officer being shot incident happened around five, thirty in the evening. The shooting happened at an apartment complex which was in or near the 25th Avenue and Greenway Road.


Police Investigate Another Scene When Someone Got Shot


The Phoenix police say that the officer who was shot, was at the apartment complex on an unrelated call. That is when the officer had gotten report of a drug deal going down inside of a Cadillac Escalade which was nearby. The police say that when the officer had approached the Escalade that he had found two men inside.


Apparently there was a scuffle that broke out and one of the men who was in the car took off running towards a nearby apartment. The officer then confronted the suspect, the police officer felt threatened and then shot the man. Police investigators say that the suspect was pronounced dead at the scene of the shooting.


Luckily no one else was injured. Police did say that they have one other person detained for some questioning. However, it’s unclear if the person they have detained is the other person who was in the Escalade.  The officers also say that when they searched the vehicle that they had found marijuana and even a weapon inside of the vehicle.


The police have not identified the officer or his shooter suspect at this time. You can visit the ABC15 news site if you would like more updates on this story. Hopefully the officer
