PHOENIX (KSAZ/AP) - Police in Phoenix say an armed man has died after being wounded in an officer-involved shooting.
They say officers responded to an apartment complex near 32nd Street and McDowell Road about 8:30 a.m. Sunday because 58-year-old John Wussler had allegedly broken an order of protection by being in the area.
After trying to make contact with Wussler, police say he ran away.
Officers chased him through the apartment complex where he eventually pulled out a gun and pointed it at an officer. Wussler was then shot by police.
He was taken to a hospital where he later died.
Police say no officers were injured in the incident and a loaded handgun was recovered at the scene.
