Man in custody after allegedly shooting at Coconino County deputies
VALLE, Ariz. (3TV/CBS 5) — A man accused of shooting at Coconino County sheriff’s deputies who were investigating a domestic violence case Thursday morning has been arrested. Aaron Rose, 51, was taken into custody thanks to an area homeowner.
It started just before 7 a.m. when deputies were dispatched to a home in Valle for reports of domestic violence involving a weapon. Deputies and an Arizona Department of Public Safety trooper arrived and spoke with the victim, who said Rose had fled and was possibly armed. While searching the area, the sheriff’s office says deputies were fired upon from a nearby ridge line. No one was hurt and deputies pulled back to set up a perimeter. The Northern Arizona Tactical Team was then requested, as well as a DPS helicopter.
Around 10 p.m., a Valle resident called 911 saying they had Rose at gunpoint on their property. Deputies responded and took him into custody without further incident. He was later booked into the Coconino County jail in Flagstaff for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and burglary.
