Investigators say the shooting broke out at about 10:30pm Friday evening on the Salt River Nation near Alma School and Thomas. They say a tribal member threatened Salt River Police officers with a knife and hammer, and officers fired on the man. The FBI says the suspect was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for his injuries.
A spokesperson for the FBI says officers did not sustain any life-threatening injuries. FBI agents will continue their investigation into the officer-involved shooting.
