Phoenix officer shoots man who confronted burglar http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2008/09/18/20080918kpnx-policeshooting.html Sept. 18, 2008 07:42 AM 12 News and The Associated Press Phoenix police say one of their officers shot and wounded a man who had been holding a burglar at gunpoint inside his home. Sgt. Tommy Thompson says the incident late Wednesday happened as officers responded to a flurry of calls in an east Phoenix neighborhood, about shots fired, a wounded man who acted strangely after being let into a good Samaritan's home and finally, a break-in at a nearby home. Arriving officers found a screaming woman who had fled the last home with two children while her mate confronted the intruder. Thompson says officers went inside, ordered everyone out and saw the armed resident coming down a hallway. One officer shot the 35-year-old man several times, but he's expected to survive. Officers then detained the intruder. The officer was responding to a shooting call near 32nd Street and Thomas. Shortly after he arrived, he fired his weapon. The officer was not hurt. Witnesses said they heard about 10 gunshots around 8 p.m. Wednesday.
