Pima County deputy shoots soldier on leave

TUCSON, Ariz. — A Pima County sheriff’s deputy has shot and killed a man
who was in Tucson on leave from the military to attend his father’s funeral.

Deputy Courtney Rodriguez says the call came in Wednesday morning about a
person who was suicidal. Deputies responded to a home along South Woodbury Grove
Drive and found the man barricaded inside.

Neighbors were evacuated and the SWAT team was called in.

Rodriguez says a deputy ended up shooting the man inside the home, but she did
not have any more details.

Authorities say the man who was killed was on leave from Afghanistan. In
October, deputies went to the same home in response to a suicide call involving
the man’s father.
