PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix police say officers shot and wounded an armed man during an encounter when police stopped a vehicle following the armed robbery of an Avondale restaurant.

Sgt. Tommy Thompson says police had four people in the vehicle under surveillance in connection with several previous armed robberies before the one in Avondale.

According to Thompson, the suspect was in extremely condition and that he was shot after he got out of the vehicle, didn't obey a command by police and pointed a weapon at police.

Thompson says no officers were injured.
