CASA GRANDE, Ariz. – Police are investigating an officer-involved shooting south of Phoenix.

A Highway Patrol Officer was conducting a follow-up investigation at a home in Casa Grande Friday evening when an individual shot at the officer.

The officer returned fire and reportedly struck one person, identified as 25-year-old Daniel Perez, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Two men then fled into the home and out through a window. Police apprehended them a short time later.

The SWAT Team was called out because police were unsure whether more people were still inside the residence.

The people who live in the home were not involved in the shooting. Perez faces assault charges.
