MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Maricopa County sheriff's officials say deputies shot and killed an armed man in Mesa.

Sheriff's spokesman Joaquin Enriquez tweeted that deputies responded Sunday afternoon to reports of a suicidal man who had fired a weapon near Crimson and McKellips roads.

Enriquez says 50-year-old Edward Rudhman confronted deputies, who fired their weapons.

Rudhman was shot. He was transported to a hospital where he died from his injuries.

No deputies were injured.

The investigation into the shooting remains ongoing.
