SUN CITY, Ariz. — A Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office deputy fatally shot an armed man during a four-hour standoff at a Sun City home.
The Sheriff’s Office said deputies went to the 69-year-old man’s home near 99th Avenue and Bell Road late
Monday after his wife left to call 911.
She told the operator that her husband was armed and suicidal.
Deputy Joaquin Enriquez said deputies tried to get the man to
surrender but that the man raised a gun and a deputy shot then shot him.
The man died at a hospital. His identity was not released immediately.
