SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Scottsdale police say a man sought for questioning in past sex crimes was fatally shot by police detectives after he fired a shot at them.

Pubins says the man got out of his vehicle and pointed his gun at the detectives and fired one shot that missed.
The man was killed when officers returned fire.
