More Is Known About Tuesday’s Officer-Involved Shooting In Paulden

More is known about Tuesday’s officer-involved shooting in Paulden. Yavapai County Sheriff’s officials say the shooting took place at around 10:15 a.m. that stemmed from a domestic dispute that resulted in one man in critical condition, another person severely injured and the suspect fatally shot. Authorities say 53-year-old Carl Schaede assaulted a 44-year-old man, who was staying with him in his home on Bourbon Alley in Paulden, with a hammer, hitting him multiple times. Schaede then attacked his 54-year-old brother, who also lived at the home, by hitting him in the head with a gun and pointing it at his head. The victim of the hammer attack survived emergency surgery at Flagstaff Medical Center, but remains in critical condition. The brother was treated for minor injuries. Schaede then left the home to the nearby Family Dollar store, where he robbed the store and assaulted a 33-year-old store clerk from Paulden, by also hitting him over the head with a gun. Schaede then walked to the Paulden Community Center where he threw the stolen money onto the floor prior to exiting, leaving the people in the center stunned. After leaving the center, YCSO deputies and Chino Valley Police found Schaede near the train trestle off of 89, not far from the Family Dollar. Despite repeated warnings from law enforcement, the suspect raised his gun to officers and Chino Valley Police officers were forced to fire on Schaede. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
