Experts Question Arizona Deputy's Shooting

September 26, 2010  | 

Two forensics experts are questioning the shooting of Pinal County (Ariz.) Sheriff's deputy Louie Puroll, saying the shooting could not have occurred as the deputy described it, reports the Arizona Republic.

Here's an excerpt from the report:

Puroll reported on April 30 that he had been ambushed while tracking drug smugglers in a desert area southwest of Casa Grande, where he suffered a grazing flesh wound to the side during an exchange of gunfire that was partially recorded in 911 calls. By the time rescuers arrived, a half-dozen purported suspects had fled.

This week, several experts who studied photographs of the wound said it appeared to them to be the result of a "close contact" gunshot. They argued that it could not have been fired by a distant suspect, as Puroll told sheriff's investigators.
