Suspect in fatal shooting of Arizona trooper taken to jail
PHOENIX (AP) — A 20-year-old suspect charged with first-degree murder in the shooting of a rookie Arizona state trooper now has been booked into jail.
Isaac Damon King had been receiving treatment at a Phoenix hospital for undisclosed injuries since the July 25 shooting along Interstate 10 in Avondale.
Authorities say King was taken to a downtown Phoenix jail Wednesday afternoon.
He was charged last weekend with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, multiple counts of aggravated assault, three counts of endangerment and resisting arrest.
King hasn’t entered a plea yet.
Arizona Department of Public Safety officials say 24-year-old Trooper Tyler Edenhofer was fatally shot during a struggle involving several troopers and King, who was suspected of throwing rocks at vehicles.
King is accused of shooting Edenhofer with another trooper’s gun.
