Phoenix police say an officer has died a day after being wounded during a shooting that left a burglary suspect dead.

The identity of the suspect has not been released, but police say the dead officer has been identified as David Glasser. He was with the department for 12 years and has a wife and two small children.
Police say the incident occurred Wednesday afternoon after a Laveen homeowner called to say his son allegedly was stealing guns from him.
Officers responded and found the suspect in a vehicle and shots were exchanged.
