PHOENIX (AP) - Phoenix police say an officer shot and wounded a man who pointed a gun at officers as they attempted to arrest another man sought on domestic violence charges and a felony warrant.

Sgt. Alan Pfohl says the 39-year-old wounded man has injuries that aren’t life-threatening though he was shot multiple times Friday night.

Pfohl says a gun was recovered at the shooting scene and that the 28-year-old wanted man ran off but was located in a nearby yard and arrested.

No identities were released.

According to Pfohl, the shooting occurred after officers spotted a vehicle belonging to the wanted man.

No officers were wounded.

The incident occurred near West McDowell Road and North 91st Avenue.
