MESA, AZ — Maricopa County Sheriff's Office deputies were involved in a deadly deputy-involved shooting Sunday evening.

Officials say the shooting occurred in the area of 56th Street and University Drive in Mesa.

MCSO says they were called to a home after a woman said her husband, 70-year-old Rodney Liveringhouse, was acting strangely and she was scared.

Deputies arrived and heard a shot fired before Liveringhouse exited the home with firearms.

He reportedly refused numerous commands to drop the weapons and pointed the weapons at deputies.

Deputies shot Liveringhouse, and he died at a hospital later.
