Suspect in Phoenix police shooting had arsenal of weapons, ammo and trip-wire in his home, officials say

Isaiah Ries Manning was released Thursday night and booked into Maricopa County Jail for weapons charges.

PHOENIX — A suspect in a shooting involving Phoenix police was released from the hospital Thursday night and booked into jail, authorities said. 

Phoenix police said on Sept. 22, around 7:30 p.m.. they got a call from a home near 31st Avenue and Greenway Road about a man with a gun.

Police said witnesses told officers they heard gunshots as the man, later identified as Isaiah Ries Manning, was leaving the home.

Officers were able to locate Manning near 25th Avenue and Greenway Road. Authorities said Manning was given commands to drop the gun but refused.

Authorities said Manning walked into a convenience store near 24th Avenue and Greenway Road, and that's when the officer-involved shooting occurred. 

Manning was transported to the hospital in critical condition, according to police.
He was released Thursday night and booked into Maricopa County Jail for weapons charges.

Court documents indicate when officers searched Manning's home, they found an arsenal of weapons and ammunition in his bedroom. They also found a cord that appeared to be a "trip wire for smoke devices and other dangerous devices."

Police said many of the guns were homemade and also included a silencer. They also confiscated a variety of extended-capacity rifle magazines and an AR-15-style firearm.
