PHOENIX -

A employee for CenturyLink was shot Tuesday afternoon while on the job in the area of 22nd Street and Southern.

The worker was in his vehicle in the alley when he was shot. He was looking down at some maps while seated in the car, preparing to do some sort of engineering work, when he was approached by a man on a bicycle.

That man, who was wearing a hoodie, demanded his money and his wallet and shot him in the shoulder.

"As he is trying to retrieve the items from his person, he is shot in the course of what he described as a robbery to us," said Phoenix Police Sgt. Trent Crump.

The worker was able to drive himself away from the scene. Phoenix Fire paramedics picked him up and took him to Maricopa Medical Center.

He suffered non life-threatening injuries and is expected to survive.

One person has been taken into custody in connection to the shooting. Police were able to catch him fairly quickly.

    Everyone hates long lines at security checkpoints and the TSA knows it. Now the TSA is sponsoring a contest to encourage anyone with new ideas about how to make the airport security lines go faster. Often for air travelers, the security checkpoint experience is the worst part of their trip. That's why the TSA turned to the crowdsourcing site Innocentive asking for ideas pledging a total of $15,000 in prize money, with at least one $5,000 award.
