DPS officer who was shot by suspect doing well

Posted: Updated:
PAYSON, Ariz. -

A DPS officer shot and wounded during a traffic stop over the weekend is recovering.

Seth Meeske is said to be doing well and is in good spirits.

He was shot on Saturday night along State Route 87 south of Payson after pulling over Cody Archuleta, from the Phoenix metro area.

Archuleta is accused of shooting the officer in an arm and leg. A third bullet hit the back of the officer's vest.

The officer called for backup and then drove himself to the hospital.

Several law enforcement agencies pursued Archuleta. They say he eventually drove into a ditch and apparently shot himself in the head.

The investigation is ongoing.
