Five police officers were wounded during a shootout during a barricaded suspect in Phoenix Arizona on Friday.

As The Hill reports:


Five officers were wounded in Phoenix, Ariz., on Friday as police responded to reports of gunshots fired inside a barricaded home, with four officers being shot while attempting to carry a baby to safety.

A woman was also reported to be critically injured, Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams told reporters, according to The Associated Press. Williams said all five officers were recovering, though one was “seriously hurt.” He said a suspect shot one of the officers, the first to arrive on the scene, “multiple times.”

“This is just one more example of the dangers that officers face every day keeping us and our community safe,” Williams said, according to the wire service. “If I seem upset, I am. This is senseless. It does not need to happen and it continues to happen over and over again.”

The baby has reportedly been recovered and is unharmed. The Phoenix police department has so far not released any further details.

I have seen so much increased morbidity in crime, all across our once great country. East/ West, North & South. All demographics were involved, except the crimes against innocent children and babies were so barbaric it left me shocked and unable to react. Our police forces, as this story shows, risk their lives trying to help stop this degrading behavior. They deserve better than the scoldings from our DC lawmakers, re defunding police. I pray the baby in this incident, will not be orphaned.

It has long been the case for law enforcement’s encounters into domestic disputes are dangerous, sometimes both will actually attack the officers.
