Arizona DPS spokesman Capt. Jesse Galvez said during a press briefing that the shooting occurred right before 9 a.m. local time on Thursday. Two detectives were in an unmarked car in police attire in the area for an ongoing operation, he said, when a silver four-door Infiniti "pulled up next to them and honked their horn."
