PHOENIX — Phoenix police say a man has died after a domestic dispute near 52nd Street and Thomas Road led to a shooting involving officers.
It happened just before 5:20 p.m. Monday.
Officers entered an apartment complex through a courtyard where they say a man, identified as Rakim Durham, was standing on the second-floor landing with a gun in his hand.
Durham was reportedly given multiple commands from Phoenix police to drop the weapon. Police say that's when the officer-involved shooting occurred. Afterward, Durham walked into a nearby apartment.
