PHOENIX – Police in Glendale said they shot an armed man late Tuesday who was reaching into his pants during a confrontation in an alley.

Jude Felix, 25, shot near 60th Avenue and Bethany Home Road around 11 p.m., was hospitalized in critical condition. Police said relatives told them Felix had made suicidal comments.

The Glendale Police Department said officers had gone to 71st and Glendale avenues around 9:30 p.m. after receiving multiple calls reporting gunfire.

A family member of Felix involved in the case called police to say the man was outside a house and had a gun.

Police said they learned Felix had fired several shots next to the house but no one was injured.

When officers tried to make contact with Felix, he tried to run, police said. He did not comply with commands to stop.

Felix was holding a phone, police said, and when he turned around to face officers, he reached into the waistband of his pants, police said.

Two officers fired their weapons, hitting him.

The gun was recovered, police said.

It was the sixth shooting of the year involving Glendale police and 41st overall by law enforcement in the Valley, according to KTAR News 92.3 FM research.
