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