    Suspect shot; police say it was accident

    A Phoenix police officer accidentally shot a graffiti suspect Sunday while the man hid under a pile of clothes in a stranger's bedroom.

    The victim, 23-year-old Tim Vic, was shot in the hip through the clothing, said Sgt. Lauri Williams, a Phoenix police spokeswoman.

    Vic was spray-painting a sidewalk in the 4700 block of North 86th Drive with three or four other people around 4:30 p.m. when police were called, she said. advertisement

    All the spray-painters ran when officers arrived, Williams said.

    Officer Joseph Twyford, 30, saw a man run toward a house on the block. Twyford asked the homeowner, a woman who was home alone, if he could search her house.

    Twyford and another officer went into the house and were searching a bedroom when Twyford's gun went off. Authorities are investigating why it fired, but Twyford told investigators it was accidental.

    Vic was in critical but stable condition at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center. Twyford is on routine paid administrative leave.

    No, this is why you don't paint sidewalks. I think I'm supposed to keep that on the hush hush, though.
