FBI says a person has been taken into custody after a federal officer was shot outside the US courthouse in Phoenix

PHOENIX (AP) – Authorities say a drive-by shooting has wounded a federal court security officer outside the U.S. courthouse in downtown Phoenix and a person has been taken into custody. Police and the FBI say the officer was taken to a hospital and is expected to recover. The FBI says someone was detained later Tuesday and there’s no indication of a further threat to the public. It says it’s not releasing more information as it investigates. A law enforcement official who spoke on the condition of anonymity says the officer works for the U.S. Marshals Service and was struck in their protective vest.
