Pinal County deputy shoots, kills armed man during confrontation

A Pinal County deputy shot and killed an armed man near Casa Grande Thursday evening, according to the sheriff's office.

Authorities say the deputy was "conducting a field interview" with a man on a dirt bike near Mescalero and Hualapai drives when the shooting happened. 

It's unclear what they had been discussing, but officials say that the man on the bike pulled out a gun during the interview.

The deputy shot the man in response, and he died from his injuries. 

The suspect was identified as 36-year-old Michael Obregon.

Obregon reportedly had a felony warrant for a parole violation, and the dirt bike had been stolen.

The Pinal County Sheriff's Office is investigating the incident.
