The patrol sergeant shot in a standoff in Avondale has been released from the hospital following surgery.
Police on Tuesday identified him as 40-year-old Sgt. Britt Gerdes. He had been on the force for seven years.
The suspect, who has been identified as 32-year-old Chan Sophann, of Avondale, reportedly shot himself in the chest early Monday morning. He remains in stable condition after surgery.
That suspect also allegedly shot Gerdes Sunday evening which led to a stand-off lasting several hours.
Officers responded to a domestic disturbance 911 call at about 5:30 p.m., Reuben Gonzales of the Avondale Police Department said. As they approached the door, a person inside opened fire, and a bullet struck Gerdes in the leg, Gonzales said.
Neighbors in the area of 107th Avenue and Indian School Road were evacuated, Gonzales said.
One witness said, "We heard fire trucks pulling into the neighborhood, so we came out to see what the commotion was going on, and then we saw a cop being escorted from the neighborhood," said Lawrence Alvarado.
It then turned into an hours-long barricade situation. Between 30 to 40 officers from the Avondale SWAT team and Phoenix police had been negotiating with the suspect to surrender, according to investigators.
