PHOENIX (AP) - A man remains hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries after being shot by a deputy U.S. marshal in the parking lot of a Phoenix grocery store.

Phoenix police say the 24-year-old man was shot Monday as a Marshals Service team was moving to arrest him in the theft of a gun from a Pinal County sheriff’s vehicle.

They say the man was shot after he made furtive movements and officers found a gun.

The man’s name hasn’t been released yet.

Police say another 24-year-old man in the car was arrested on suspicion of two drug-related charges.

The sheriff’s deputy left his department-issued weapon in a marked patrol car outside his home and it was stolen Jan. 22.

The unidentified deputy violated department policy by leaving his weapon in the vehicle.
