Shiprock shooting at apartment complex | Crime
A Navajo Nation police officer responding to an argument at a Shiprock apartment complex was stabbed in the foot and shot a man.
FBI spokesman Frank Fisher says the suspect’s injuries aren't considered life-threatening.
Fisher says Navajo police had responded to a report of a disturbance at the Chaco river apartments complex the night of Friday, August 16th, and a fight broke out.
Our media partners at the Farmington Daily Times report that witnesses saw an injured female officer carried to a police car shortly after the shooting.
One resident told the newspaper that bullets had pierced the wall on the west side of his apartment, entering his bedroom.
Authorities have yet to release the name of the officer that was stabbed.
