It’s with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Phoenix Police Department Commander Greg Carnicle who was shot in the line of duty on Sunday March 29 on the scene of a domestic violence call.
Two other officers were also shot during the incident at 40th Drive and Pinnacle Peak. The two officers are expected to recover.
Commander Carnicle was a 31-year veteran of the force, and was just months away from retiring. During his distinguished career, he held positions throughout the department including the special assignments unit, K9 and he most recently oversaw all evening and weekend patrol operations.
Rest In Peace Commander Carnicle.
