PHOENIX — Authorities in Prescott Valley are seeking information after a suspect fired shots into the home of a Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office deputy, nearly striking a sleeping 4-year-old child.

The incident occurred just before 2:30 a.m. on Thursday near State Route 69 and Robert Road, according to a joint release from the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office and Prescott Valley Police Department.

Nobody in the home was injured.

“This was not just an attack on law enforcement and one of our deputies, but a cowardly act against his young family,” Yavapai County Sheriff Scott Mascher said in the release.

“I want the coward to know that we will find you and bring you to justice. You can run, but we will get you.”

Yavapai Silent Witness is offering a $6,000 reward for a direct tip leading to the arrest of the shooter and Mascher says several law enforcement agencies are working the case.

Tips can be submitted online or by calling 1800-932-3232.
