LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas police have identified an officer who was shot by a suspect during an unrelated call.

Authorities said Saturday that 52-year-old Gregory Sedminik, who is expected to make a full recovery, is an 18-year veteran of the department.

According to police, Sedminik and another patrol officer responded to a domestic call at noon Thursday south of the Las Vegas strip.

A man not involved in the dispute allegedly made a comment to an officer and then fired several shots.

Sedminik was hit in the torso and arm but managed to return fire.

Suspect Teag L. Fox fled but was arrested hours later near an upscale residential and golf community.

Police also recovered the gun used in the shooting.

It is unclear if Fox has an attorney.
