UPDATE: Deputy was doing normal drug interdiction and came upon approx. 5 heavily armed suspects carrying drugs.
Shot in abdomen w/possible AK-47.

Frantic search ensued to find deputy in this very remote area off of Interstate 8.

Huge manhunt underway. This area is well known as a drug smuggling route about 80 miles from border.
Much confusion about details, but does not appear now to have been a traffic stop.

A Pinal County Sheriff’s deputy was shot in the stomach Friday after a traffic stop on Interstate 8, according sheriff’s officials.

Authorities said the deputy was shot by a suspected undocumented immigrant and other suspects were being sought.

The deputy apparently pulled over a vehicle on Interstate 8 near Arizona 84 at about 4:30 p.m. Friday. When the deputy approached the vehicle, he was shot in the stomach, said Lt. Tamatha Villar, spokesperson for the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office

No further details were immediately available. Sky 12 is responding to the scene.
