A Phoenix police spokesman said a woman was wounded in an officer-involved shooting early Wednesday morning.

Sgt. Trent Crump of Phoenix police said sharpshooters shot one of two women barricaded in a home near 13th Street and Broadway.

Crump said details of the shooting were sketchy, but that the wounded woman was in serious condition and the other woman was in police custody.

Crump said officers were attempting to serve a search warrant on one of the women about 7:30 Tuesday evening. He said the suspect tried to run from the house through the back door, but encountered officers. The woman pointed a gun at officers before running back into the home, Crump said.

During a four-hour standoff with police, Crump said, shots were fired inside the house and at police and their equipment outside the house.

Police sharpshooters were able to see the two women in the house through a window where a curtain had been opened, and fired, striking one of the women in the face.
