PHOENIX - New body camera footage showed police shooting an armed suspect at a 7-Eleven in north Phoenix back in September.
Authorities say there were multiple people inside the store near 25th Avenue and Greenway Road at the time. The only person injured was the suspect, identified as 22-year-old Isaiah Manning.
Police say they were first called about an armed man making unusual statements at a home near 31st Avenue and Greenway Road. When officers arrived at the scene, they were told an adult male had left his residence with a weapon and a gunshot was later heard in the area.
Officers later found Manning walking to the convenience store, and police say he refused commands to stop.
Video showed police yelling at customers to get out of the way seconds before opening fire, and Manning continues to walk into the store before collapsing.
Police say this is not a rare situation.
"We deal often times with a lot of types of calls for service like this. It's not an uncommon thing and one of the things we take into consideration is obviously the safety of our community. If something or a person can be considered a threat to others, our concern is containing that person and ensuring that no one else gets hurt," said Sgt. Vincent Cole.
After the shooting, the suspect was removed from the store by officers was hospitalized in critical condition. He has been released and faces a slew of charges.
Police say Manning had several guns with him, including some with extended magazines.
Greenway Road was closed between Interstate 17 east to 23rd Avenue during the investigation.
