Metro Phoenix deputy on life support; suspect shot


PHOENIX (AP) — Authorities say a man suspected of gravely injuring a metro Phoenix sheriff’s deputy has been shot and wounded by a homeowner with whom he had a history of conflicts. Maricopa County sheriff’s officials say the suspect _ identified as 30-year-old Clinton Robert Hurley_ is hospitalized in critical condition while the deputy remains on life support. Authorities say the manhunt for Hurley began around 11 a.m. Saturday after he allegedly attacked a deputy who was processing him on multiple felony warrants at a substation in suburban Avondale, about 18 miles west of Phoenix. Hurley was shot Saturday night at a home in Tonopah, some 52 miles west of Phoenix. It wasn’t immediately known if Hurley had a lawyer who could speak on his behalf.
