PHOENIX — A suspect shot by police near Hohokam Stadium in Mesa was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

The incident occurred around 10:30 a.m. in a neighborhood north of the spring training venue off Center Street, between Brown and McLellan roads, according to the Mesa Police Department.

Police arrived after a 911 caller outside the house indicated his roommate, the suspect, was armed with a knife and preventing her boyfriend from leaving the house.

At the scene, police utilized a loudspeaker to communicate with the suspect and her boyfriend inside the house. They decided to enter the house after the boyfriend indicated he was in trouble, which was when an officer shot the suspect, after which she died from her injuries, police said.

The boyfriend was uninjured, and police were able to remove him from danger.

No officers were injured and this appears to be an isolated incident, police said.

The police investigation remains active.
