Prescott Valley police responded Sunday to the house for a reported domestic violence incident. As the person was on the phone with dispatchers, gun shots were heard inside the residence. Upon arrival, according to a news release, officers set up a perimeter and an unknown man came out the back door of the house and pointed a gun at one of the police officers.
The officer shot back, hitting the man, police said. Inside they found another man, whose identity also is unknown, who had a wound on his neck that was the result of an alleged assault.
The man the officer reportedly shot was treated at the scene and flown to a Phoenix hospital by helicopter. The wounded man from inside the home also was treated at the scene, then taken to Yavapai Regional Medical Center.
