Mesa police: Man wounded after shooting at pursuing officers
MESA, Ariz. (AP) — The Mesa Police Department says officers shot and wounded a man who fired at officers after refusing to pull over while driving a vehicle with an expired registration.
Police say no officers were injured in the incident Saturday and that the suspect was expected to survive his injuries.
The wounded suspect’s identity wasn’t released.
