    But Guzman's arrest is raising some serious questions. One of which, is this the real El Chapo? The other is how were police able to arrest him without a single shot being fired. We talked with a filmmaker whose new document hopes to answer some of those questions.

PHOENIX (KSAZ) - It's been more than six months since an MCSO posse member was shot while trying to help a Phoenix Police officer who was also shot.

That posse member was critically injured in that shooting. He's spent all of 2014 in the hospital since being shot on New Year's Eve. Phillip Grigg jumped in to help a Phoenix Police officer scuffling with a suspect and ended up being shot and seriously wounded.

After spending seven grueling months in the ICU at Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn, Maricopa County Sheriff's posse member Phillip Grigg is heading home.Grigg was released from the hospital Wednesday afternoon.

He was on his way to the grocery store on New Year's Eve when his truck was hit by a car that Phoenix Police say was driven by an armed robbery suspect. The suspect then got into a struggle with Phoenix Police officer Scott Sefranka.

Grigg jumped in to help, and the suspect was able to grab Sefranka's gun and shoot the officer and Grigg.

Sefranka recovered, but it's been a long road for the 63-year-old man. He suffered setbacks in the hospital and was placed in a medically induced coma for some time. He also fought off a stomach infection according to MCSO.

"A volunteer posse member jumping in, and he doesn't get paid to do this, but he saw the need. He saw the need for action, and he took it. We're thankful that he did, and we're thankful that he was able to survive his injuries. It's very tragic, but we're thankful the posse member and the officer were able to survive this tragic incident," said Deputy Joaquin Enriquez.

The 26-year-old man that Phoenix Police say shot Sefranka and Grigg is facing a number of charges, including two counts of attempted murder.
