PHOENIX -- Two Phoenix police officers were wounded with bird shot pellets while arresting two men sought in an earlier shooting in Mesa.
Police say the two veteran officers suffered non-life-threatening injuries to their legs.
They say 27-year-old Nazario B. Castillo is being held on suspicion of seven counts of aggravated assault on a police officer.
Police say 25-year-old Emmanuel L. Castillo was booked into jail for unlawful flight.
It's unclear if the two men are related.
