Attempted robbery by taser results in gunfire exchange in Phoenix

Sep 11, 2016, 12:41 PM | Updated: Sep 12, 2016, 10:36 am

Two men who met to complete a sales transaction that had begun online exchanged gunfire outside a Phoenix shopping mall Saturday night according to Phoenix police.

The suspect, armed with a taser and a gun, attempted to steal the victim’s merchandise by using a taser, resulting in the victim firing gunshots at the suspect. The suspect then used a gun to fire back shots and fled with the merchandise on what police are calling a red sport-style motorcycle.

The victim was not struck, while evidence led Phoenix police to believe the suspect may have suffered a gunshot wound.

Anyone familiar with the whereabouts of the suspect is urged to call Phoenix Police or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS if they wish to remain anonymous.
