SHIPROCK, N.M. (AP) — A Navajo Nation police officer responding to an argument at a Shiprock apartment complex was stabbed in the foot and shot a man.
FBI spokesman Frank Fisher says the man’s injuries aren’t considered life-threatening.
Authorities did not release the names of those involved.
Fisher says Navajo police had responded to a report of a disturbance at the apartment complex Friday night, and a fight broke out.
A woman who answered the phone at the Shiprock Police Department on Saturday said no one was available to take questions.
The Farmington Daily Times (http://bit.ly/19q1xU5 ) reported that witnesses saw an injured female officer carried to a police car shortly after the shooting.
One resident told the newspaper that bullets had pierced the wall on the west side of his apartment, entering the bedroom.
