Tucson police identify man who was fatally shot by officers
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Police in Tucson have released the name of a man who was fatally shot by officers last week.
They say 53-year-old Joel Andrade allegedly was armed with a rifle.
Police were called to a domestic dispute Monday night and were told that Andrade had locked himself in a bathroom.
Officers tried to get Andrade to surrender for about two hours before they say he began cutting his neck with a knife and making statements that he wanted police to kill him.
Andrade was shot when he reportedly raised a rifle toward officers and went back inside the bathroom.
He was later pronounced dead.
Police say the shooting remains under investigation.
