The Tucson Police Department seeks public assistance with identifying and locating the suspect(s) responsible for shooting one of our patrol sergeants on the early morning of November 18, 2012. The shooting occurred during the investigation of two separate audible alarm incidents that occurred at a residence in the 4000 block of East Elmwood. At approximately 1:43 a.m., offices from Operations Division Midtown were advised of an audible alarm that was coming from the residence. The first officer to arrive in the area encountered an adult male in the yard of the residence. The officer gave the suspect verbal commands in an effort to control the male until other officers arrived to assist. However, the male did not comply with the commands and instead began running from the residence. Several officers searched for the male for approximately 1 hour, but were not able to successfully locate or identify him. Upon further investigation at the residence, it was discovered that entry had been made in to the house. Officers were able to lock up the house before ultimately concluding their investigation and leaving the area shortly after 4:15 a.m. Approximately 1 hour later, at 5:15 a.m., officers were advised of a second audible alarm coming from the same residence. Sergeant Robert Carpenter arrived at the residence within a minute of the alarm notification. There were obvious signs of forced entry to the residence. As such, Sergeant Carpenter and two patrol officers conducted an interior check of the house to determine if any suspects remained inside. No one was found in the residence or on the property. Shortly after Sergeant Carpenter and the officers exited the residence, they head a loud noise, and Sergeant Carpenter fell to the ground. Sergeant Carpenter appeared to be injured. However, the cause of the injury was not immediately known. Emergency medical personnel from the Tucson Fire Department responded to the scene and ultimately transported Sergeant Carpenter to a local trauma center for additional medical evaluation and treatment. It was discovered that Sergeant Carpenter had been shot in the head. After emergency surgery was performed, he was listed in stable, but critical condition. Sergeant Carpenter’s family and friends have been able to be with him at the hospital, where he will remain for an undetermined amount of time.
