    Police officer shot, escapes serious injury when round hits badge
    By Sun Staff (contact)


    The officer was on patrol about 9:55 p.m. in the area of Losee Road and Deer Springs Way when he heard shots coming from an apartment complex, police said.

    The 31-year-old officer, whose name was not immediately released, came upon a “suspicious person” near Deer Springs and McCarran Street and tried to stop him, police said.

    At that point, there was an exchange of gunfire between the officer and the suspect in which the officer was struck. The suspect, who fled, may also have been hit, police said.

    Police were searching for the gunman. No further details were released.

    Wow, they wear 7 point stars, no? Not even a Centurion shield like us.
