$18K robbery led to Phoenix officer civilian shot
PHOENIX (AP) -- Phoenix police say the robbery of $18,000 led to a chase and car crash that ended with both an officer and civilian being shot in the street.
Two men are charged with robbing two employees of a men's club at gunpoint outside a restaurant. They were carrying about $18,000 from the club.
The suspects' car then collided with a truck during a chase by police.
Police say 26-year-old Roger Allen Sharp of Phoenix got the officer's gun and shot the officer and the truck's driver.
Sharp and co-defendant 36-year-old David Lee Murray of Tempe are being held in lieu of $500,000 bonds. It's not immediately known if they have lawyers.
Both shooting victims were critically wounded. Their names haven't been released.
