According to the Phoenix Police Department, it happened just before 6:00 a.m. Friday when officers saw a man and woman fighting.

Police say when they approached the man, he took off running and pulled out a gun.

He refused to stop and led officers on a foot pursuit through a parking lot toward traffic near 19th Avenue. Authorities said that's when officers shot the man.

The 35-year-old man, who was later identified by police as 35-year-old Brian Streeter, was taken to a hospital and is in stable condition. As of November 25, Streeter remains hospitalized.

Both officers involved have two years of experience with the Phoenix Police Department.
