MCSO: Suspect shot after throwing rocks at sergeant, threatening him with knife

FOUNTAIN HILLS, Ariz. (FOX 10) - Authorities say a suspect was shot after he threw rocks at a sergeant and threatened him with a knife in Fountain Hills.

According to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, a man repeatedly called 911 on Monday afternoon saying he needed to talk to a deputy at the MCSO substation located near the Avenue of Fountain Hills and La Montana Drive.

When an MCSO sergeant went outside to the substation parking lot, he confronted 18-year-old Ismail Hamed who began throwing rocks at him.

Hamed, a Fountain Hills resident, displayed a knife and moved towards the sergeant, despite the sergeant's repeated commands to stop.

The sergeant then fired his weapon at Hamed.

Hamed was taken to a hospital and has since been booked into jail on one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
