PHOENIX (AP) - The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says detectives and members of a fugitive apprehension unit shot and wounded a suspect in Phoenix.

The Sheriff's Office didn't release information on circumstances leading up to the shooting Friday night but said a gun was recovered from the scene and that no deputies were injured.

The office said the suspect was transported to a hospital in critical condition. The suspect's identity wasn't released.

A sheriff's spokesman, Sgt. Calbert Gillett, said a second suspect was arrested earlier without incident.
