Maricopa shootout leaves officer injured, suspect dead

An officer was injured and a suspect is dead after a shootout near Maricopa.

The incident happened at around 1:30 a.m. on June 28 after a resident called 911 to report seeing three people breaking into cars near Hartman and Honeycutt roads. 

"The resident stated they followed the suspects until the suspects threatened to shoot them," said police. "At that time, the resident stopped following the suspects."

Officers saw three people breaking into a car when they arrived. When the suspects saw law enforcement, they ran away.

One teenager was quickly arrested, while the other two ran to a nearby field.

"One of the suspects exchanged fire with the two officers that were following," said Monica Williams with Maricopa PD. "One of our officers was struck and is suffering a non-life threatening injury."

Police returned fire, killing one of the suspects. The other suspect, identified as 20-year-old Jose Martinez, was arrested.
