Phoenix Shootout Leaves 1 Officer Dead, Another Critically Injured

A deadly Phoenix shootout left a police officer dead and the suspect dead as well. Another Phoenix police officer is out of surgery and recovering in an intensive-care unit after being critically wounded by a fugitive, authorities said. Police Chief Daniel Garcia and Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton both said at a news conference outside the hospital Monday night that the officer who was injured, a nine-year veteran of the force, was “still fighting for his life” and asked for prayers for the families of both the officers.

“Today is a tragic reminder that our officers risk their lives for us every single day,” said Stanton, who had left on an official trip to Mexico on Monday, but returned later the same day per The Republic.

Garcia added, “We need a lot of support right now – these are tough times of policing.”

The officer killed during the Phoenix shootout, a 21-year veteran, was a member of the Police Department’s fugitive apprehension team and died of his wounds at the hospital, a few hours after the shooting took place at 3:30 p.m. Monday, Garcia said.

Identities have not been released.

The shootout took place after a man wanted on a felony warrant fled a car, causing a three-car collision, then ran away before exchanging gunfire with officers outside a check-cashing and title loan business, authorities reported.

“It was obvious that the guy was out of control,” said Wayne Monton, who owns a nearby business and witnessed the shooting. “After the crash and the shooting, everybody just took off running. It was chaos.”

The suspect turned a corner with a gun in hand, and a third officer fatally shot him, Detective James Holmes said.

The suspect’s name has not been released.

An 83-year-old woman and a 53-year-old man suffered minor injuries due to the car crash that closed an intersection for several hours as authorities gathered evidence.
