Arizona man allegedly shoots, wounds 3 officers, barricades self in home before setting it on fire


CHANDLER, Ariz. — A suspect was arrested for allegedly shooting and wounding three police officers Monday before barricading himself in a home and then setting it on fire, authorities said.

Police said the 35-year-old man was taken into custody shortly before 1 p.m. to end an incident that began 12 hours earlier when officers on patrol spotted and confronted a suspicious person.

The man ran and then turned around and fired several shots. Police said one officer was treated and released from a hospital for a non-life threatening injury.

The second shooting occurred about 7 a.m. when police saw officers tracked the suspect to a Chandler home when the man again fired shots.

One of the officers suffered a cut to the back of the head and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Police surrounded the house for about five hours until forcing their way in just before noon.
