GUADALUPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office says SWAT officers fatally shot a man after he fired a gun in their direction during an encounter near an elementary school in Guadalupe, a Phoenix suburb.
The office says the incident occurred Wednesday after deputies responded to a report of a man acting erratically and shooting a gun as he approached the school.
The officer said the man was shot after he first shot at a law enforcement drone and then at SWAT officers who then returned fire.
No officers were injured.
The man’s identity was not released immediately.
