TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - There are new details on the officer involved shooting from Wednesday night.

A suspect is in the hospital this morning after a shooting involving a Pima County Sheriff's Department deputy. It happened after a resident reported a burglary at his home near Moore Road and Thornydale.

Tucson News Now has learned the names of the deputy and suspect involved in the shooting that happened just before 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

A resident received a call from his alarm company, one of his motion sensors was activated when no one was supposed to be home. The homeowner drove to his house and found a man inside with a weapon; he then called 911 and PCSD deputies arrived on scene.

"They observed the armed intruder holding a rifle at the front door area. They gave verbal commands, the intruder didn't obey those commands and posed a threat to the deputies," said Chief Deputy Chris Nanos.

Investigators say Deputy Justin Meebor fired his weapon hitting the suspect Slade Olsen multiple times.

Olsen was transported to the local trauma center in critical condition. Deputy Meebor was not injured or hit. He has been with the sheriff's department for two years and has been put on administrative leave pending the investigation.
