TUCSON - Tucson police confirmed on their Facebook page Monday, a "person of interest" has been detained for questioning in the shooting Sgt. Robert Carpenter Sunday morning.
Police said there have been no charges brought against this person or any other persons at this time.
Authorities investigating the shooting outside a home during a burglary call said they don't have a description of the person who wounded the lawman, but they have been looking for a man who ran away after a break-in several hours earlier at the same residence.
Tucson police spokeswoman Maria Hawke said the officers at the scene of the second burglary didn't see the person who shot Sgt. Robert Carpenter in the head and didn't see which direction the shot was fired from.
They couldn't provide any information on the shooter because they were focused on aiding the wounded officer in the moments immediately after the shooting.
Carpenter remains in critical yet stable condition after undergoing surgery.
