CHANDLER, AZ — A suspect is in custody following a shooting involving an Arizona Department of Transportation officer in Chandler on Thursday morning.
ADOT officers were in the area of Alma School Road and Chandler Boulevard serving a search warrant. The suspect, identified as 26-year-old Kamari Ameir Diamond, was wanted on felony charges.
ADOT says they contacted Diamond, who jumped into a vehicle.
Diamond reportedly tried to flee the scene in the car and grazed the officer with the vehicle.
At that time, another ADOT officer fired into the vehicle.
Around 2 p.m. Thursday, police say Diamond was located near Alma School Road and Frye Road with a gunshot wound to the hand. The suspect was taken to the hospital for treatment. A second person arrested at the location was questioned as an "investigative lead" by police, but is not facing any charges.
Diamond's car was found empty in a nearby business parking lot with blood inside.
Police say no officers were injured.
