Following a shooting inside an apartment building in downtown Phoenix on Friday night, a Scottsdale sergeant is in the hospital and an armed suspect is at large. According to Scottsdale Police Chief Jeff Walther, detectives were executing a warrant inside Union at Roosevelt around 7 o’clock, close to 1st Avenue and Roosevelt Street. According to reports, the guy was wanted for many offenses.
A mother and child were discovered inside the residence by the detectives, according to the police. When officers noticed a man standing in the corridor, according to Walther, the two were hauled out of the residence. The suspect, according to police, instantly ducked inside a room and started firing at the policemen. The cops promptly exited the residence after one of the officers, a sergeant, was hit by gunfire. Unknown if the suspect was hit, another police started firing at him.
Officer on scene confirmed some new info for me.

Then, according to investigators, he leaped over a balcony on the second floor and fled. He is still missing. The sergeant is now receiving medical care and is anticipated to recover. After the incident, Walthers issued a harsh warning to the neighborhood. We must ask ourselves, “When did this become acceptable? This, increase in the frequency of aggravated assaults on police officers, and police officer shootings, have been observed by other police agencies in the Valley and the state.
I believe we need to start challenging our assumptions about when this was acceptable, he said. “We ask that you reflect on the time it became acceptable and acknowledge that it will never be acceptable.”
The police chief stated that if the individual is not located by authorities, they will disclose his name and ask the public for assistance in locating him. He is thought to be dangerous and armed. No information about the suspect has been made public. A local resident claims to have seen a startling note outside the door of his complex. “When I glance outdoors, I see numerous lights. Actually, a guy above me informed me that there was a shooter present.
Chris, who resides in a nearby flat, admitted, “I was honestly sort of astonished. “Let me try and perhaps I won’t be stuck in my flat all night,” I said. As I go to enter one of the doors, I notice a sign that reads, “Active shooter outside this door.” Avoid opening.
