Phoenix armed robbery investigation escalates into police shooting; 2 suspects in custody

Two suspects are in custody after an armed robbery investigation in Phoenix escalated into an officer-involved shooting on the evening of Sunday, Nov. 6.

The investigation began near 32nd and Glenrosa Avenues. When officers arrived at the scene, witnesses pointed out the suspects' car, which was fleeing the area.

Officers drove to 31st and Campbell Avenues and spotted the suspects' vehicle. The officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but the suspects didn't stop, and a pursuit ensued until the suspects crashed into an empty parked at an apartment complex near 19th Avenue and Indian School Road.

Multiple who were inside the car jumped out and ran away. 

One of the suspects tried hopping over a wall and an officer shot at him. The suspect was not hit by gunfire and continued running away. The suspect was later found hiding inside a canal.

"One of our officers was able to follow the driver through the apartment complex. He was able to reach a concrete wall and the suspect began to climb that wall and that's when the officer-involved shooting occurred," Sgt. Philip Krynsky said.

A gun was found in the area where the shooting occurred.

Two other suspects were also found, however, one was later released.

No officers or suspects were hurt. The suspects have only been identified as juveniles.
