PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix police officials say a 22-year-old officer was fighting for his life Tuesday after being shot and gravely wounded.
Officials said during a news briefing outside a midtown hospital that Officer Tyler Moldovan was shot at an apartment complex’s parking area while officers sought a person who had been driving erratically. Police Chief Jeri Williams said the hospital’s staff was “doing everything possible they can to save” Moldovan.
A department spokesman said no officers fired their weapons while taking a suspect into custody. The suspect's identity wasn't released. Moldovan graduated from the police academy last year.
