TUCSON, Ariz. — An armed suspect who was shot while fleeing Tucson police

He faces one count each of aggravated assault on a peace officer with a deadly

Alvarez was struck several times but none of his injuries were
life-threatening.

No officers were hurt.

It was not known if Alvarez had an attorney.
