Suspect dead after being shot by Phoenix Police: What we know

The Phoenix Police Department says it's investigating an officer-involved shooting that left a suspect dead Monday night.

The shooting happened near 20th and Jefferson Streets around 8:15 p.m. on July 17. Police say officers responded to a hit-and-run call near 7th Street and Jefferson where they found an empty vehicle with shell casings inside the passenger compartment. 

A witness at the scene gave the officers a description of the suspect and the direction he was last seen. The suspect was spotted nearby by officers walking along railroad tracks.

"The suspect was acting erratically and did not follow officer's [sic] commands," Sgt. Phil Krynsky said.

The officers used less-than-lethal force to try and get the suspect to comply with their commands, but it was not successful.

The suspect then allegedly pulled out a gun and pointed it at the officers, who then opened fire on the suspect.

The suspect, identified as 35-year-old Armando Reyes, died at the scene. No officers were hurt.

No further details were released.
