PHOENIX - Police have identified a man a bail bondsman fired shots at while trying to take him into custody outside a busy bank building in Phoenix Tuesday.
Police responded to the Bank of America building at 44th Street and Thomas Road just after 5 p.m. as the bank was closing.
Police said a bail bondsman tracked 57-year-old Thomas Glenn Morgan to the bank after getting a tip and tried to apprehend him.
"[The fugitive] is a man with no known address and he is using cars that don't belong to him," said Phoenix Police Lt. David Laslavic. "He has had run-ins with the bail bondsmen before."
Police told ABC15 when the bondsman tried to apprehend Morgan, the suspect rammed his car.
The bondsman then reportedly got out of his car and opened fire on the fugitive.
The bondsman chased the man down Thomas Road to 22nd Street where he gave up the chase.
Police said this was the second time in which bail bondsmen have tried to take Morgan into custody and he tried to run down the victims with his SUV.
Police say Morgan has been convicted of fraud against vulnerable adults in which he identified himself as an attorney and convinced the victims to pay him money for legal services.
They say he has shown by his actions that he does not want to be arrested and should be considered dangerous.
Anyone with information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
Police said the bail bondsman has not been been taken into custody for shooting at the suspect and no charges have been filed at this time. The case will be forwarded to the County Attorney's Office for review.
