Chase near Naco, Arizona leads to officer-involved shooting
NACO, Ariz. -- Authorities said a man who fled from southern Arizona police officers is in custody and being treated for a gunshot wound.
The officer-involved shooting took place Tuesday night in the Naco area near the U.S.-Mexico line. Earlier Tuesday, Border Patrol agent Nicholas Ivie was shot to death and another agent wounded in the same area.
Cochise County Sheriff's spokeswoman Carol Capas said the situation began when Bisbee Police attempted to pull over a man riding a motorcycle on Naco Highway.
Police said the man fired at officers, who fired back. The man then fled the area on foot.
Capas said authorities later received a call about an injured man at a Douglas home. Bisbee police identified the man as the motorcyclist.
The man is being hospitalized to treat a gunshot wound.
