SCUBA STEVE as you know him, was working patrol when he responded to a shots fired call. Upon arriving on scene, he was immediately meet with Semi Automatic Gun Fire, the Vehicle took 6 rounds and he took one in the forearm. He had his first surgery yesterday and is in surgery right now. He is doing well and his wife is doing well under the circumstances.

The suspect had just killed two people and shot 6 others.
He is in custody ...

Fueled by jealousy, Brent Matthew Banks gunned down his ex-girlfriend, her boyfriend and shot a Mesa officer in the arm at a Mesa graduation party late Saturday night, police documents say.

On Sunday, Banks, 37. was booked into jail on first-degree murder charges as well as aggravated assault and kidnapping charges.

Sally S. Johnson-Huddleston, 38, and Auston G. Blanks, 32,died after Banks shot them with a semiautomatic handgun, records show.
Two-year Mesa police officer Steven Cervantes, 34, had emergency surgery on Sunday and will probably remain in the hospital for several days, said Mesa Police spokesman Sgt. Ed Wessing.

His injuries are not life-threatening, but the officer will require several surgeries to repair his arm, Wessing added.

Six other people at the graduation party had minor injuries because they were either grazed by bullets or were hit by bullet fragments. The injured included an 8-year-old boy who is Johnson-Huddleston's and Banks' son, and a 10-year-old boy who was attending the party.

Police did not identify the boys because they are minors.

I can see I wasn't alone in my first impression. :D

My best to Scuba Steve. Indeed, many worse places to take on than in the forearm.
