Phoenix police officer shot, wounded; suspect in custody
Phoenix police officials say a 22-year-old officer is fighting for his life after he was shot and gravely wounded.
Officials told reporters outside a midtown hospital that Officer Tyler Moldovan was shot Tuesday at an apartment complex’s parking area while officers were looking for a person who had been driving erratically.
Police Chief Jeri Williams says the hospital’s staff is doing everything possible to save Moldovan.
A police department spokesperson said no officers fired their weapons while taking a suspect into custody who was not immediately identified.
Another department spokesperson said Moldovan graduated from the police academy last March.
