Sgt. Robert Livingston was shot by 44-year-old Stephen Hudak as he fled from a law enforcement team attempting to take him into custody, according to a statement from Officer Tiffany Smith, Glendale police spokesperson. She said the 23-year veteran remains in serious condition as he recovers from his injuries.

Glendale Police Chief Rick St. John cited the efforts of detectives David Turley and Jimmy Carlo, who used items from a department-issued trauma kit to treat Livingston's gunshot wound.

"Their quick thinking and clear heads under extreme duress allowed them to immediately apply critical lifesaving first aid to Sergeant Livingston and we are forever indebted to them," St. John said.
