Hearne was arrested near Baseline Road and Lakeshore Drive, and the Phoenix Police Department tweeted before 6 p.m. Saturday that he was taken to a hospital.

According to Walther, a bullet hit the sergeant in the lower abdomen, and another detective fired back, but Hearne is said to have jumped off a second-floor balcony and run away. The Scottsdale Police Department said the sergeant was let out of the hospital on Sunday and returned home to continue healing.

Hearne was thought to be dangerous and armed, the authorities said. Around 8 p.m. on Friday, Phoenix Vice Mayor Yassamin Ansari told people to stay away from Roosevelt Row and its neighborhoods. This was because the incident happened during First Friday, a popular event in the area.

The Roosevelt Street/Central Avenue station was skipped by Valley Metro trains for a short time, but standard light rail service started again at 9:30 p.m. Please forward this to your friends if you find it interesting. Visit for the most recent celebrity news and updates.
