TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) – Authorities confirmed a suspect was taken to a local hospital following an officer-involved shooting on the northwest side on Wednesday night.

Officials with the Pima County Sheriff’s Department said no deputies were hurt in the incident in the 13,500 block of N. Thornydale Road.

According to Chief Deputy Chris Nanos this all started around 6:27 p.m., when a homeowner received a call from his alarm company indicating a motion sensor was activated when no one was supposed to be at his house. The homeowner drove home and found an armed man inside the house.

Authorities responded within minutes and found the gunman, 21-year-old Slade Olsen, armed with a rifle. They say Deputy Meeboer told him to drop the weapon. Instead, Olsen pointed at Deputy Justin Meeboer, who subsequently fired his handgun, hitting Olsen.

Olsen is in the hospital in critical condition, but his injuries are believed to be nonlife-threatening. Deputy Meeboer is on administrative leave while the investigation is underway.
