1 dead after fight in Phoenix restaurant

PHOENIX — A man has died after a violent run-in with police at a Phoenix restaurant Sunday night.

Police were called to Freddy’s Steak Burgers near 51st Avenue and Bell Road after a customer barricaded himself in the bathroom, then flooded that room. Once he came out, he damaged countertops in the kitchen.

Authorities said two officers had to use a stun gun when the 36-year-old suspect began fighting two officers. The man was Tasered but continued fighting before two more officers managed to subdue him.

The suspect was pronounced dead at a hospital and two officers were treated for injuries.
