Suspect wounded in Chandler police shooting during domestic violence investigation

A domestic violence investigation in Chandler turned into the suspect being shot by officers late Friday night.

Chandler Police say around 11:30 p.m. on March 22, officers responded to the area of Chandler Boulevard and I-10 for reports of a domestic violence incident at a hotel between a man and woman.

"Hotel staff contacted police on the victim's behalf and said she had reportedly been held against her will for multiple hours at the location by the suspect," police said.

Two officers found the suspect at the hotel and as they got out of their patrol car, the suspect reportedly started shooting at the officers immediately.

"Another officer arrived at their location to assist seconds later," police said. "Two of the three officers were able to return fire, striking the suspect one time in the lower part of his body."

The suspect was initially in critical condition but is now stable at the hospital. Police say the alleged domestic violence victim wasn't injured in the shooting.

The suspect is identified as Cody Charles Long, 32, of Phoenix.

Once he's released from the hospital, he'll be booked into jail on suspicion of aggravated assault-strangulation, kidnapping and charges related to shooting at officers.

No officers were hurt in this incident.
