AVONDALE, AZ - Police say a man died after an officer-involved shooting Tuesday morning in Avondale.

Avondale police Sgt. Brandon Busse said the incident happened around 8 a.m. in front of the Circle K at Avondale Boulevard and McDowell Road.

Busse said police were called out to the location because of a person acting "erratically" in the store.

Shaun Nathaniel Walters, 19, "displayed a weapon toward officers in which deadly force was used," Busse said.

Walters was shot in the abdomen, police said. The officer is OK.

Busse said Walters was airlifted to a hospital where he was pronounced deceased at 9:40 a.m.
