AZ: Suspect Accused of Attack on Deputy Shot by Homeowner

TONOPAH, Ariz. — A suspect accused of critically injuring a Maricopa County Sheriff's deputy in Avondale was shot Saturday night. 

Officials said that 30-year-old Clinton Hurley was shot by a homeowner around 6:30 p.m. when he attempted to enter a home near Buckeye and Wintersburg roads in Tonopah. He was airlifted to the hospital after the shooting where he is in critical condition.

Hurley and the homeowner had a "history" and gunfire was exchanged, according to Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone. 

Hurley was wanted by law enforcement after a sheriff's office deputy was found unconscious and bleeding allegedly after an altercation with him on Saturday morning.

Just guessing, but if the two had "history", the homeowner knew from the news that he was "in the game" and knew what his options were, and he was ready.

Love to know what "history" involved.
