PHOENIX - A suspect is in custody after an officer-involved shooting in Phoenix on Thursday morning. 

The shooting happened around 8 a.m. near 7th Street and Greenway Parkway. 

Police say officers first responded to the area on a call of a suspicious vehicle parked in a neighborhood. The driver fled when officers arrived, driving toward one of the officers. The officer at risk shot at the suspect's vehicle.  

Air15 video showed police and K-9 units searching the area by air and ground. The suspect, later identified as 22-year-old Antonio Garcia Goff, was found in a backyard and taken into custody. 

Goff was treated for a minor injury that may have been the result of the shooting incident, as well as a bite injury from a police K-9.

He has since been booked into jail on an outstanding warrant and charges of trespassing and aggravated assault on an officer.
