GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - An illegal weapons sale turned into a robbery that turned into a police shooting in Glendale on Thursday.

That’s according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety, which says one of its troopers shot and injured a suspect. Authorities say the incident began as an illegal weapons transaction that turned into a robbery.

Troopers tried to arrest the suspects, but they rammed their car into a trooper’s vehicle, which disabled it.

A suspect then pointed his gun at the troopers and a trooper fired at him. The suspect is in critical condition. Police are searching for two other men who fled. No troopers were injured.
