An investigation launched in Arizona after a public protest left the deputy sheriff of the Maricopa district with life support and suspicion free.
The sheriff’s deputy was found critically injured near Van Buren and Dysart Road on Saturday morning and is in critical condition, according to police.

The multi-party hunting is happening to the suspect. The authorities did not say how the deputy was injured.
In a press conference later in the day, police said they saw the suspect as Clinton Robert Hurley and said he was armed and dangerous.
Sheriff Paul Penzone says Hurley was recently released from prison on a charge of sexually assaulting a child and is suspected of stealing a police car before robbing another person.
The officer, who is on a life support, has not been identified unless he is a three-year-old soldier.
A $ 10,000 prize is being offered for information leading to Hurley’s arrest.
