PHOENIX — Phoenix police say an officer fatally shot an armed suspect who was pursued from the scene of a home invasion elsewhere in the city.
Sgt. Vince Lewis says the officer shot the man after he pointed a gun at officers confronting him after his vehicle crashed and he then tried to run away early Thursday morning.
No officers were injured. No identities were released.
The crash occurred in a neighborhood near a junction of Interstates 10 and 17 near Sky Harbor International Airport.
The home invasion occurred miles away on the city’s west side, where a second suspect in the home invasion was arrested.
Lewis says three victims of the home invasion were detained based on something that responding officers found in the home. No details were provided.
