Arizona Authorities Find Wounded Deputy In Desert

He was shot with a AK47 by those nice folks who cross the border illegally

CASA GRANDE, Ariz. -- Authorities in southern Arizona have found a deputy wounded in a shootout with suspected drug smugglers after a frantic hour-long desert search.

Pinal County sheriff's Lt. Tamatha Villar says the deputy suffered a superficial wound to his abdomen after being shot with an AK-47 assault rifle Friday afternoon. He was flown by helicopter to a hospital in Casa Grande, about 40 miles south of Phoenix.

Thank goodness they found him, prayers for his speedy recovery.

I certainly hope they catch these nice folks who crossed the border illegally and tried to murder this deputy doing his duty.
