Arizona Republic Article
Last September a Phoenix police officer responded to a call of a home intruder
and mistakenly fired 6 shots at the homeowner, believing that the man
was the suspect. The officer involved in the shooting was recently cleared
by an internal police committee that reviews incident involving police
officer shootings. The man shot by the police and his family have filed
a multi million dollar claim against the city through their
phoenix attorney and allege that the internal review demeans the credibility of police
According to news reports, the homeowner was holding the criminal at gun
point in the bedroom of his son when the police arrived. Unfortunately,
the police mistook him for the suspect and opened fire, striking him with
multiple shots in the back. Reportedly, the Phoenix public safety manager
will review the boards findings and make an official determination with
regard to the officer's shooting.
