WINDOW ROCK, AZ - Authorities say a Navajo man who was shot Friday morning by police in Window Rock has died from his injuries.
The FBI identifies the man as Eric Reed.
Window Rock Police District Cmdr. Bob Etsitty says tribal officers had responded to reports of domestic violence on the east side of the fairgrounds near the Arizona-New Mexico border. When they arrived, Reed was brandishing a gun.
Authorities say Reed ignored orders to drop the weapon and was shot by Navajo police. He was transported to a hospital and died.
Another woman inside a vehicle was struck by a bullet, but authorities say her injuries weren't life threatening.
Etsitty says Navajo officers involved will be placed on leave while tribal and federal authorities investigate the shootings. He did not release their identities.
