A suspect in the shooting of a Phoenix police officer and the subject of a manhunt for more than three days has been arrested.

He surrendered to police after several hours of negotiations. A police spokesman says Cowan still had gunshot wounds from Thursday's shootout.

He will be booked on several charges after getting medical treatment.

Authorities say Cowan shot an officer investigating a domestic violence call from inside his car at a a gas station.

The wounded officer continues to recover in the hospital.
