    GOOD: Rocket Scientist robs liquor store across from the cop house - Phoenix, AZ

    ...and gets a "stomach ache" for his troubles.


    PHOENIX -- Officers responded Thursday morning to an officer-involved shooting at a liquor store at 16th Street and University Drive in South Phoenix.
    Investigation continues

    A 30-year-old male, reportedly the suspect, has been taken to Good Samaritan Hospital, said Phoenix Fire Dispatch. He was shot in the stomach and his injuries are life threatening.

    It all happened at shortly after 7:30 a.m.

    The man allegedly tried to rob a liquor store across the street from the Department of Public Safety's Knutson substation.

    At the time, dozens of DPS officers were getting ready for some kind of training.

    A car pulled up and the person inside told the officer that Minute Liquors was being robbed.

    At least 10 DPS officers ran across the street to the store. At the same time, the suspect was running out the door. He was armed with unknown weapon.

    DPS Lt. James Warriner said the officers ordered the man to drop his weapon, but he didn't.

    One of the officer fired at least one shot, hitting the suspect in the stomach.

    None of the officers was hurt in the confrontation, and no other information about the suspect has been released.

    The officer who pulled the trigger will be placed on administrative leave, which is standard procedure in any officer-involved shooting.

    I thought that an actual rocket scientist had gone nuts. This guy certainly isn't one though.

    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion

    Yep... this is Arizona! But they can't sell booze until something like 10 am on Sundays, just to give the churches a fighting chance.

    He nominated himself for a Darwin Award ... if he's gut-shot he just might get his award.

    I think that after he finished robbing the liquor store he was going to go across the street and rob the police station of their petty (petit?) cash and bail money.

    Oh wow. That is classic.

    Honestly, a dozen officers with firearms drawn and only one shot, apparently? I'm surprised he's not swiss cheese. Good restraint on the part of the officers, I guess.
