Police have identified his passenger at the time as 23-year-old Erick Yuriar.
Phoenix Police officers say it happened at an AM/PM convenience store.
During the incident, Carpentier allegedly parked his car while attempting to meet an undercover officer for a drug stop. Police then pulled behind him in a marked Tahoe to block him in.
Police say that's when the suspect allegedly put his car into reverse and rammed into the officers' patrol car.
According to police, another officer in an unmarked patrol car shot at Carpentier, striking him in the eye.
The officers performed CPR on the suspect until Phoenix fire paramedics arrived, police said.
Yuriar was inside the suspect's car and had a gun but cooperated and was taken into custody.
Carpentier remains in critical condition as of Wednesday afternoon according to police.
Two handguns were found inside the suspect's car.
Officers involved in the shooting were not injured.
