On Saturday, a security guard was shot while attempting to control a dispute between two neighbors.
Phoenix Security Solutions said the officer responded to the dispute in the Avalon community after it intensified. While Officer Ricky Wise was attempting to resolve the situation, one of the neighbors took his body camera and ran into a residence.
The neighbor in question is known to suffer from severe PTSD. The suspect re-appeared and allegedly aimed a shotgun at the neighbor that was involved in the dispute.
The officer drew his weapon requesting the suspect to drop the gun. The suspect then allegedly fired at Wise striking him in the face from nearly 25 feet away. He was able to take cover but was shot again in the back of the head.
The suspect allegedly fired at least eight times. Wise was able to return fire hitting the suspect three times and successfully took down the armed individual.
Wise did not suffer life-threatening injuries and is expected to recover.
The suspect was apprehended and taken to a hospital and their identity has not yet been publicly released.
An investigation is currently underway and no further details are available at this time.
