Phoenix police ID suspect fatally shot after a carjacking

December 5, 2018

PHOENIX (AP) — Police in Phoenix have identified a man who was fatally shot by officers after he allegedly carjacked a semitruck.

They say the suspect killed last week was 46-year-old Miguel Angel Duran Delgado.

Officers responded last Thursday afternoon to a reported armed robbery in a commercial lot.

Police say Delgado approached a semitruck, pointed a rifle at the driver and motioned him out of the truck, then drove it a short distance before stopping.

Delgado reportedly got out of the semitruck and ignored officers’ orders to surrender.

Police fired several non-lethal rounds at Delgado before he was shot.

He later died at a hospital.
