Phoenix police: 2 die after a domestic violence incident

Posted

PHOENIX (AP) — A man was fatally shot after a domestic violence incident that left a woman dead and a teenage boy injured, Phoenix police said Monday.

Officers were called out to a neighborhood about 10 p.m. Sunday after multiple calls about a fight at a home.

When officers arrived, they found the man outside of the house where he told officers he had a gun.

Police said the man then pointed what appeared to be a gun at the officers, who opened fire.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. His name and age weren’t immediately released.

Police said a black hard-shell eyeglasses case was used as a simulated weapon and was found next to the suspect.

Officers went inside the house and found a 46-year-old woman and a 13-year-old boy with life-threatening injuries, but it’s unclear if the man shot them.

The two were taken to a hospital in critical condition where the woman was later pronounced dead.

Her name and age also haven’t been released yet.
