PHOENIX — The Phoenix Police Department says a man was shot and killed by Phoenix police Sunday night near 24th Street and Cactus Road.

Officers were called to a domestic dispute at a home around 7 p.m. They learned a man had reportedly fired shots inside and outside the home several times.

When police got to the scene, they say the man, only identified as a 52-year-old, was outside and waving a gun around.

The man reportedly ignored officer commands to drop the weapon and pointed it at them, leading to the police shooting.

Police say the man died from his injuries at the scene.

No other injuries were reported.

The investigation is ongoing.
