A man was arrested and faces three counts of attempted first-degree murder after trying to run over three Phoenix, Arizona police officers early Tuesday morning.
"Our Phoenix police officers were targeted," Phoenix police chief Joe Yahner said in a news conference.
According to Yahner, the officers had stopped at the QuikTrip to meet after finishing a call.
The officers included a 41-year-old sergeant with 18 years of experience and a 33-year-old officer who had just graduated from the police academy. It was the younger officer's first night on the job, according to Yahner.
