Police: Ex-Arizona prisons boss hospitalized with gun wound
Police say former Arizona Corrections Director Charles Ryan suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound to one of his hands, initially refused calls to exit his Tempe home and pointed a gun at officers before finally surrendering.
Police said Ryan will face charges once he’s released from the hospital.
Authorities said officers went to his home Thursday after getting a report of a person there with a possible a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Police say officers tried to communicate with Ryan, who remained in his home.
Ryan is accused of pointing a gun at officers at one point.
After negotiators were called in, police say Ryan exited the house.
