PHOENIX — Troopers with the Arizona Department of Public Safety were involved in a shooting Thursday afternoon in western Arizona, the department confirmed to KTAR News 92.3 FM. 

No troopers were injured in the shooting, which occurred along the Interstate 10 near Ehrenberg, about 145 miles west of Phoenix, spokesman Bart Graves said.

According to ABC15, La Paz County deputies were also involved in the shooting, but none were harmed.

The cause of the shooting or the condition of the suspect or suspects was not immediately known.

The shooting occurred one day after a suspect was shot and killed and another was injured in a shooting in Flagstaff that involved a DPS trooper.

The department said 20-year-old Marcus Gishal was killed around 8:45 p.m. Wednesday after he allegedly fired on troopers who located him and 20-year-old Preston Oszust after the pair fled from a traffic stop.

Oszust was critically injured in the shooting after he was struck by gunfire. The trooper who was injured was shot in the hand. He was transported to a hospital and was later released.

There have been five officer-involved shootings in the Phoenix area in 2019.
