PHOENIX – Federal agents executing an arrest warrant in a Phoenix suburb shot two suspects late Wednesday, shutting down part of a highway for the investigation.
The investigation closed off U.S.60/Grand Avenue in El Mirage around 11 p.m. from Thompson Ranch Road to 113th Avenue. Both directions were affected for several hours, and the road reopened around 8:15 a.m. Thursday
FBI spokeswoman Jill McCabe said in an email three suspects were in a vehicle when a Violent Crimes Task Force attempted to make contact.
The third suspect was uninjured.
McCabe said no agents were injured.
In a Thursday evening email, McCabe said the subject of the original warrant, Ernesto Izaguirre, was in custody of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.
