PRESCOTT VALLEY - A police officer shot a suspect in a domestic dispute after the man pointed a gun at him Sunday afternoon, and another man was also taken to the hospital with an assault injury to the neck, a police spokesman said.

About 3 p.m., a caller to 911 reported a domestic violence incident at a house in the 9400 block of Magma Drive. While the caller was on the telephone with dispatchers, she told them she could hear shots being fired inside the house, PVPD spokesman Gene McFarland said.

As police began to arrive and set up a perimeter, a man came out the back door and pointed a gun at one of the officers, who fired and hit him, McFarland said.

Officers checking the house for other possible suspects found another man inside with a wound to the neck that they determined were the result of an assault, he said.

The man who had been shot was flown to a Phoenix hospital; he was awake and responding to paramedics when he was put on board the helicopter.

The other man was taken by ground ambulance to Yavapai Regional Medical Center.

No officers were injured.

The name of the officer who fired his weapon, the man who was shot, and the assault victim have not been released.

McFarland said the officer has been put on administrative leave, a standard practice in cases like this.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety will investigate the incident, McFarland said.
