Police: Phoenix officer shoots man during attack

PHOENIX - A man is hospitalized in serious condition after being shot in the chest by a Phoenix policeman after he allegedly attacked the officer.

Police say the 26-year-old suspect was shot Tuesday near a school in south Phoenix.

They say the officer pulled over and asked the man if he needed assistance after observing the man acting strange. That's when police say the man walked over to the officer's unmarked car and began punching him in the face.

Police say the officer shot the suspect, who continued to walk toward the school and then collapsed.

The name of the suspect hasn't been released. Police say he'll be booked into jail on felony charges after he's released from the hospital.

The unidentified police officer was treated for facial lacerations and minor injuries.
