A Phoenix Federal Officer is Shot in a Drive-By Shooting


Our police officers are under attack nationwide.

First in Los Angeles now in Phoenix.

A security guard working for the U.S. Marshalls was wounded Tuesday in a drive-by shooting outside a federal court building in downtown Phoenix.

The shooter was later detained and the officer was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

ABC News released this brief statement about the shooting:

An arrest has been made in an apparent drive-by shooting outside a federal courthouse in Phoenix midday Tuesday, authorities said.

A court security officer was wounded in the shooting, which occurred around 11:30 a.m. near the Sandra Day O’Connor U.S. Courthouse in downtown Phoenix, officials said. The officer was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, authorities said.

About three hours after the shooting, the FBI announced that a suspect was in custody and there was no continued threat to public safety.

AP News released these facts about the shooting:

A drive-by shooting wounded a federal security officer outside the U.S. courthouse in downtown Phoenix on Tuesday, and a person was later taken into custody, authorities said.

The officer was taken to a hospital and was expected to recover, according to city police and the FBI. Jill McCabe, a spokeswoman for the FBI’s Phoenix office, said someone was later detained and there was no indication of a further threat to the public.

The court security officer works for the U.S. Marshals Service and was struck in their protective vest, said a law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly.

Court security officers work under the direction of the U.S. Marshals Service but generally are employed by private security companies.


When heading to the polls this November remember which party backs our officers.

The left all summer has put out dangerous rhetoric which is now coming back to hurt law enforcement officers across the country.
