Authorities said a man who fled from southern Arizona police officers is in custody and being treated for a gunshot wound.
The officer-involved shooting took place Tuesday night in the Naco area near the U.S.-Mexico line. Earlier Tuesday, a Border Patrol agent was shot to death and another wounded in the same area.
Cochise County sheriff's spokeswoman Carol Capas said the situation began when Bisbee police attempted to pull over a man riding a motorcycle on Naco Highway. Capas said the man had an active order of protection against the man and that he had attempted to make contact with the protected woman, who called police.
Capas said the man reached speeds of up to 100 mph on his motorcycle, fired at Bisbee police officers, who fired back. The man then fled the area on foot.
Capas said authorities later received a call about an injured man at a Douglas home. Bisbee police identified the man as the motorcyclist.
The man was hospitalized for treatment of his gunshot wound.
The Cochise County Sheriff's Office continued its investigation Wednesday afternoon.
