AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say a man suspected of gravely injuring a metro Phoenix sheriff's deputy has been shot and wounded by a homeowner with whom he had a history of conflicts.

Maricopa County sheriff's officials say the suspect identified as 30-year-old Clinton Robert Hurley is hospitalized in critical condition while the deputy remains on life support.

Authorities say the manhunt for Hurley began around 11 a.m. Saturday after he allegedly attacked a deputy who was processing him on multiple felony warrants at a substation in suburban Avondale, about 18 miles west of Phoenix.

Hurley was shot Saturday night at a home in Tonopah, some 52 miles west of Phoenix.

It wasn't immediately known if Hurley had a lawyer who could speak on his behalf.
