PHOENIX (AP) - Phoenix police have identified a man who was shot in the leg by an officer after trying to take a gun from another officer's holster.
Police say 23-year-old Thomas Strickland was taken to a hospital for his injury after the April 9 incident.
Once he's released from the hospital, police say Strickland will be booked into jail for aggravated assault against the officers plus an outstanding warrant for a parole violation.
Police say they were called to a vacant home for reports of a suspicious man on the property.
When they got there, it was determined Strickland had a warrant out for his arrest.
When police tried to arrest him, Strickland allegedly tried to pull a gun from one of the officer's holsters.
Strickland was then wounded by another policeman.
