Phoenix Police Commander Killed, Two Officers Injured in Shootinghttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/1098Police3/30/2020 6:00:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/9UIAPW98ha8Phoenix Police Commander Killed, Two Officers Injured in Shooting<div class="ExternalClass69DFDB0964A34A1498FCCCAD2CE32836"><html> <p>​The Phoenix Police Department is mourning the loss of a highly decorated leader.  Commander Greg Carnicle was shot and killed while working a domestic fight call.</p> <p>On Sunday afternoon, March 29, Commander Carnicle and two other officers were called to the area of Pinnacle Peak and 40th Drive in North Phoenix.  The caller advised that one of the roommates was acting peculiar and the other roommates wanted him to leave.</p> <p>When the officers arrived on scene, they were directed to 22-year-old Jacob Emry Mcilveen.  As the officers talked with McIlveen, he remained calm.  The officers told him he would have to leave and helped him remove some of his property.  At some point, while they were taking his property outside, McIlveen slammed the front door on the officers.</p> <p>Additional officers went back inside the house to contact Mcilveen once again.  They could not see him; however they were able to talk to him while he remained upstairs.  As the officers were climbing the stairs, Mcilveen came out of one of the rooms upstairs and began shooting at the officers.  His shots struck Commander Greg Carnicle, Officer Marissa Dowhan and Officer Alicia Hubert. One of the other officers who had remained downstairs fired in the direction of Mcilveen. </p> <p>The injuries prevented the officers from getting out of the house. Additional officers already on scene were able to get the three injured officers from the home and secure the scene.  The Special Assignments Unit responded and attempted to negotiate Mcilveen's surrender. </p> <p>After several hours, Mcilveen came out of the house armed with a handgun. An officer shot at Mcilveen stopping the threat. Mcilveen was pronounced dead at the scene. </p> <p>Commander Carnicle and Officers Hubert and Dowhan were transported to a local hospital where Commander Carnicle was pronounced deceased.  There were no additional injuries.</p> <p>Commander Carnicle spent 31 years with the Phoenix Police Department. He served as officer, Sergeant, Lieutenant and finally promoting to Commander in 2015.  He held supervisory roles in our Special Assignments Unit, K-9, Professional Standards Bureau and the Crime Lab.  The 56-year-old was set to retire this fall and wanted to finish out this time on the force back where he started, protecting the streets of Phoenix.  Last summer, he approached Chief Jeri Williams and asked if he could be the duty commander for patrol.  </p> <p>Commander Carnicle was very well liked among his fellow officers.  He was known for his dry sense of humor and his direct, yet caring style.  He leaves behind a wife and four adult children.</p> <p>Officer Dowhan has been with the department for 3 years and is 23 years old.  Officer Hubert is 22 years old and has spent just under 2 years with the department.  Despite serious physical injuries, they are both expected to recover.</p> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideopolicePolice@PhoenixPoliceCommander Carnicle, End of Watch, Line of Duty DeathPolice Main PIOphoenixpd.pio@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/36/Police2.pngPhoenixPolice

Heat of the Day Respite Center Opens at PHX Convention Center https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/article/1287Articles and Features5/29/2020 3:20:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1287/Homeless Camp.jpgHeat of the Day Respite Center Opens at PHX Convention Center <div class="ExternalClass43E81AFA96BF48238B3F1AB49C531806"><html> <p>​The Heat of the Day Respite Center will be opened starting today, Friday, May 29. The respite center will provide shelter on excessive heat days to our most vulnerable residents. On these days, buses will begin picking up those experiencing homelessness near the Human Services Campus at 9 a.m. along Jefferson St., at 9th and 12th avenues. The buses will stop every hour to transport individuals with a valid Human Services Campus identification card to the PHX Convention Center to escape the heat.</p> <p>The area at the PHX Convention Center will have tables and chairs spaced for television viewing and meals. The city is partnering with St. Vincent de Paul to provide both lunch and dinner, while ensuring those seeking refuge have access to water. No personal belongings will be allowed inside the PHX Convention Center per CDC recommendations to prevent the spread COVID-19. All personal items will be left at the Human Services Campus or the Maricopa County COVID-19 lots where residents will be returned in the late evening hours. PHX Convention Center staff will be doing ongoing cleanings of the area and facilities being used for the respite to ensure the safety of both the residents and City staff. Each night when the respite area is closed down, a deep cleaning of the facilities will occur ensuring CDC guidelines are being met to slow the spread of COVID-19.</p> <p>Additionally, several community partners are continuing to outreach and support those living on the streets during this excessively hot weekend. The Salvation Army has opened 12 heat relief stations across metro Phoenix. St. Vincent de Paul, housed at the Human Services Campus, will open their doors during the heat of the day to clients of the campus. Their heat relief center will allow vaccinated pets. Finally, the Justa Center for senior citizens who are homeless, also located near the Human Services Campus, will operate an air-conditioned tent respite and hydration center during the hot days in the parking lot of their facility for their clients. ​<br></p> <p> <br> </p> </html></div>News
