Pinal County, Arizona, Deputy Shot by Illegal Immigrants With AK-47s?

by the Left Coast Rebel

Is this reasonable suspicion? According to the race-baiting far left, probably not (CNN):

A sheriff's deputy in central Arizona who was shot Friday afternoon by an alleged illegal immigrant has been found after authorities lost contact with him, according to CNN affiliate KPNX.

The Pinal County deputy, who was not immediately identified, contacted authorities after being wounded in a remote area, said Lt. Tammy Villar, a sheriff's spokeswoman. She said authorities believe he was shot with a AK-47. The deputy was being treated for the wound, but his condition was not immediately known, Villar said.

Pinal County is located between Phoenix and Tuscon and has been described as a key transit point for illegal immigrants. Sheriff Paul Babeu told CNN that an estimated 80 percent of illegal immigrants eventually pass through his county along the way to other locations.

Also, it seems that the suspect was even shooting at the police helicopter. Narco-terror and untold violence and devastation at the border? Nah....nothing to see here.....keep walking, look away:

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office dispatched a helicopter and members of its SWAT team to Pinal County to assist in the case, said MCSO Lt. Brian Lee. Lee said at 5:45 p.m. there were reports over the police scanner that suspects were shooting at a police helicopter. Lee did not know which agency was operating the helicopter.
AZCentral is the best source for up-to-date information on this story. Here's the latest:

Lt. Tami Villar told 12 News that the search and rescue deputy was investigating a load of marijuana in the desert and was confronted by five suspects.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was headed to Pinal County to assist in the investigation, Lee said. About 70 MCSO employees were responding to the scene. Lee said most were involved in a crime suppression sweep in the Maryvale area.

The Border Patrol has sent agents to assist the Pinal County Sheriff's Office with the investigation, said Mario Escalante, a Border Patrol spokesman assigned to the Tucson sector.

The nearest Border Patrol station in the area is located in Casa Grande.

Shortly after the shooting, Pinal County also requested assistance from the Arizona Department of Public Safety, which responded with two helicopters and a SWAT team.

I wonder if 'May-Day' protesters will smear refried-bean swastikas on government buildings across the nation and especially Arizona - to protest this investigation as well?

Via Memeorandum.
