Phoenix PD: Suspect shot after pointing firearm at officer while exiting home; body cam video released

New body camera footage released by the Phoenix Police Department details the moments of a shootout between a man and an officer on May 30 near 43rd Avenue and Thunderbird Road.

Police say the man, identified as 42-year-old Adan Carlos, violated a protection order.

Carlos remains hospitalized due to his injuries, but police say he fired six rounds when officers arrived at his child's home.

The 911 caller heard was the teenage daughter of Adan Carlos. Just after 5 p.m., she told police her father violated the order of protection he had been served with two weeks earlier. She said Carlos was close to the front of her home.


"He was banging on the doors," she said.

Body camera footage shows the first officer arrive. Police say Carlos pointed a handgun at him as he got out of his car.

You can hear "drop the [expletive] gun," followed by gunshots.

Police say both the officer and Carlos exchanged gunfire, but Carlos was hit. The second officer arrived at the scene soon after, ordering Carlos to get away from the gun.

"Get away from the gun. Get away from the gun."

Ring surveillance video shows Carlos slide the gun away.

"You got me good," Carlos is heard saying in the video.

Carlos reportedly fired six rounds during the shooting. One bullet went through a home half a mile away, but no one was injured.

"There's ammo right there.. yeah, there's another mag in his pocket," was heard on the body cam video.

Investigators also learned a car registered to Carlos was found burned in a nearby area.

Police say he is also the suspect in an armed robbery just hours before the shooting. He's accused of forcing someone at gunpoint to drive him around. The victim dropped Carlos off near his child's home where the shooting took place.

The officer involved in this case is 26 years old and has been with Phoenix PD for two years.

An internal investigation is underway, as well as a criminal investigation. Once complete, the Maricopa County Attorney's Office will review everything.

1 person hurt following police shooting

"When the first officer arrived, he was immediately engaged with the suspect who was pointing a firearm at him while exiting a screened area near the front door of the residence. The officer responded to the aggravated assault, exchanging gunfire with the suspect. The suspect was injured," stated Phoenix Police Sgt. Ann Justus.

When more officers arrived at the scene, they took the suspect into custody, and crews from the Phoenix Fire Department transported him to an area hospital.

On May 31, Justus said the 42-year-old suspect was in critical, but stable condition and will be booked on several charges after he is released.

Police say no officers or people in the community were injured, but a home in the area was struck by the suspect's gunfire.

"During the on-scene investigation, detectives learned that the suspect's vehicle had been set on fire and that the suspect had taken a vehicle at gunpoint near 28th Drive and Cactus," stated Justus.

The suspect forced the victim from that robbery to drive him a few blocks away from the scene of the officer-involved shooting, according to police. The victim wasn't injured and drove away from the scene once the suspect exited the vehicle.
