Police say a suspect was injured during an officer-involved shooting in Phoenix on Monday night.

According to Phoenix police officials, the shooting happened near 20th Street and Glendale Avenue. 

Police say officers responded to a report of an aggravated assault before 8 p.m. The victim reportedly called police from a safe location and said the suspect, 77-year-old Robert Zummo, pointed a handgun at them for unknown reasons.

Officers responded to the home and tried to make contact with Zummo for about an hour. At that time, Zummo exited the home with a handgun. 

Two officers fired at Zummo, but it's unclear if Zummo was hit by gunfire. The suspect reportedly only suffered superficial wounds and was transported to a nearby hospital. 

Zummo was booked into jail and charged with three counts of aggravated assault on police.

There were no injuries to officers, police say.

This is the 53rd officer-involved shooting in the Valley so far in 2018 and the 31st within the city limits of Phoenix.
