SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Scottsdale police say a man who allegedly shot a Walgreens worker during a Christmas Day robbery is in custody.

Police say 21-year-old Cody Ray Moore was arrested Thursday in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community after he crashed his vehicle.

They say Moore went to the Walgreens store around 4 p.m. and shot the employee while committing robbery.

He then fled in a vehicle with police in pursuit.

Police say Moore failed to negotiate a turn at Thomas Road and the 101 Freeway and struck a utility pole.

He was apprehended and police say Moore is being held on suspicion of armed robbery, aggravated assault and felony flight.

It was unclear Friday if he has a lawyer yet.

Police say Moore is recovering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen.
