Investigators said the U.S. Marshals Office was tailing a 30-year-old suspect who had a parole violation and a warrant out for his arrest. Police said he contacted his estranged wife on Tuesday and said if certain demands weren't met, he would shoot everyone, including police.

Officers said he also acquired a weapon.

Law enforcement was doing surveillance on him to make sure no harm came to the estranged wife.

When the suspect left the Circle K on Wednesday afternoon, he was approached by Mesa police officers and U.S. Marshals deputies.

They said the suspect resisted and a stun gun was used on him but he pulled out a gun and fired at officers.

Officers returned fire, hitting the suspect four times.

Police said the suspect was taken to the hospital in serious condition.

No one else was hurt.

Police said the suspect had a violent criminal history.

An investigation is underway.
